PokerStars Team Online member Alex “Kanu7” Millar is one of the most successful online high stakes players around right now and can be seen competing with the very best in the game on a regular basis. However, he might not be a name that is often thought of as a superstar in the poker industry due to his quiet and down to earth nature.
The British player is not scared of any player whether it be Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Phil “Polarizing” Ivey, Dan “Jungleman12” Cates or Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius yet when it comes to his home life, he would much prefer to keep away as much as possible from the limelight.
As part of his sponsorship deal with PokerStars however, he is required to do a little bit to promote both himself and the site, something he speaks about in the blog post he wrote that coincides with the release of their latest mini-documentary about one of their Team Online players.
“So, PokerStars are releasing a short documentary film about me today. To be completely honest, when I was first discussing joining Team Online with PokerStars, this was the part of it that I was most hesitant about.”
He talks about the filming of the video, how he lives a life far from the baller type one that is usually stereotyped for a young poker professional and how his friends all agreed to take part and how embarrassed he got being followed around by a film crew in his hometown of Blackpool.
You should head over to PokerStarsBlog to take in that blog post, but until then, simply enjoy learning a little about the life of one of pokers most successful online poker players.
