The still as yet unknown online poker player known by his screen name of “1Il|1Il|1il|” or simply “barcode” has recently been crushing the high stakes scene online to the tune of $1.2 million throughout the past few weeks alone.
He has been playing against some of the best high stakes grinders and been coming out on top in most instances. Players such as Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky and Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen have all felt the wrath of the mysterious player.
In respect to yesterday action at the tables he took Blom to the cleaners to the tune of around $173k which was enough to take him past that $1.2 million mark for the first time this month. Barcode is well known to prefer playing at the high stakes Pot Limit Omaha tables and at stakes of $200/$400 which is exactly where most of his profit has come from in the past few weeks.
Just last week he moved into territory which is reserved only for elite players as he managed to win over $500k in just one day’s action.
2011 Was The Year He First Surfaced!
He was first spotted on the high stakes tables back in the latter part of 20122 and made a few losses at first; in fact he lost around $200k. However, following that initial settling in period he went on a massive heater which gave him just over a million in profit before the end of the year.
He came back in 2012 and again started slowly, dropping almost $500k before seemingly giving up playing online and disappeared for around six months. He did come back however just last month and has been in incredible form ever since.
There has been massive speculation as to who this player is, though it is still unconfirmed. The only thing we know is that the player is Canada based, which has led to rumours that the player could possibly be Di “trex313” Dang or even Tom Dwan. However, just because the account was created in Canada does not necessarily mean the player is Canadian.
The player’s stats speak for themselves though as he is way out in front with regards to profits made in October which is almost double that of another mystery player known as “LesserFriend” who has amassed $784k this month so far.
The biggest loser so far this month is another mystery player, though “patpatman” is strongly rumoured to be one of the Macau businessmen that regularly enjoy high stakes action. “patpatman” is down just over $1 million in October so far.
