He is obviously a japan fan as long as Kagome Kagome (かごめかごめ, or 籠目籠&#30446 Blink is a Japanese children's game and the song associated with it. I bet he is a japanese businessman living in Germany.

kagome kagome was before know by the nickname "ihatejuice"!He is possibly the best limit he player in the world, and when he became famous he was 19 and was a student! Fulltilt forced him to change the nick name becausa some people thought that i hate juice was trying to offendthe jews because its very similar when you spelling it!

Te guy is pretty weird but he is no way unknown, in fact he gave an interview about a year ago for a poker blog. Unfortunately i cannot share that link here for obvious reasons.

He is indeed a limit expert, probably the best on holdem, except antonius and ivey no one wanted to play him HU.

Why would someone complain about that nick? Is it something related with the fact of being German? Perhaps it is, and the sound of his nick seems he hates other thing… but i’m laughing so much with this obligation to change nickname story… in Portuguese, his new nickname means: “I defecate myself I defecate myself”!!! This guy would never be taken for serious playing with Portuguese competitors. But nice weekly sum, by the way.
