Ben Grundy Up $7.8 Million at PLO, Irish Open Venue Announced
Ben Grundy Posts Sick Graph.....again
It is quite frankly amazing how UK pro Ben Grundy can often stay under the radar like he does when he is clearly one of the sickest online players in the world. The online PLO specialist known as the Milkybarkid has once again reminded us why he is one of the best Omaha players in the world, by posting his lifetime PLO graph.
Over 320,000 hands he is up $7.8 million, with an average winrate of nearly $5,400 a day. For such a high variance game, it is amazing how the upwards curvature on his graph is so steady. He is taking the rest of the year off and has already set his sights on reaching $10 million in career earnings next year.
Amazingly he also blogged that he would like to 'try and not play so bad so often' in 2010 – with a graph like that I think we all wish we could play as bad as Ben Grundy.
