Sometimes you just have to go “Hmmmm, I wonder what would have happened if I had invested in learning how to play poker instead of….” Of course, you quickly realize that although it’s never too late; you just may have to face a hell of a lot of tougher and younger competition.
It seems as if every year younger and younger players get into the mix and often come into it from the “online” world of digital poker. They have already played thousands of hands dealt to them on their computer screens, electronic pads, or even their cellular phones. In many cases, they became proficient way before they ever sat down at a live table with live players. Their usual aggressive online strategies sometimes destroy their chances, but often it goes the other way, and they soon find their way around reads, tells, and all the other nuances of live games and come back to rake in all the poker chips.
Here is a list of some of today’s current youngest players with more than $4 million in winnings from live games as well as online games:
Sam Trickett – 28
Chris Moorman – 29
Martin Jacobson – 27
Jonathan Duhamel – 27
Jason Mercier – 28
Pius Heinz – 25
Ryan Riess – 24
Jesse Sylvia – 27
Jake Cody – 26
Now, a final table with these nine poker superstars, before they turn 30, would be one hell of a game that I’d love to watch live from the rails. I know there are many more players out there that could be included in this list, but there are just too many of them to add here.
