Jude Ainsworth on a Major Heater

If there was one guy you would like to put your house on this year in the WSOP Main Event, it would surely be Jude Ainsworth of Galway, who is putting on a clinic right now at the online felt. The young pro first came to our attention when he won the 2008 Irish Poker Championships and more recently when he won the Pokerstars SCOOP Main Event, and it looks like this heater has no sign of slowing down.

Most recently, this has included a three week heater on Pokerstars.net, which saw him win the nightly $109 rebuy twice and come 2nd in another all in one week. Anyone who knows this tournament knows that it is a real murderer's row, with no soft spots at the table and is probably the toughest daily tournament in poker.

Just check out this recent run of results from Ainsworth, better known as j.thaddeus online, which have seen him up over a million in just over 3 months:
