Jon Turner is originally from North Carolina and began playing online while in college. During the summer of 2005, "PearlJammer" decided it was time to move to Sin City and try his hand at poker for a living.
PearlJammer is a multi-tabler who rarely plays under 8 tournaments at once. It is not uncommon to witness him playing 12 or more tournaments at a time on Sundays, when most poker sites offer larger buy-in major tournaments. It has been 19 months since Jon moved to Las Vegas, and through Distance Education, he will receive his Bachelor's degree from North Carolina State University after the spring semester concludes.
Isaac "Mr. Menlo" Baron can be counted among the growing number of young superstars earning six-digit incomes thanks to Onilne Poker. After being introduced to the game in 2005, a friend of Isaac's would occasionally transfer him $20 to play in a Sit & Go or Multi-Table tournament. One night, "Mr. Menlo" got a $22 transfer from a buddy and used that to enter a $22 buy-in tournament on Poker Stars, which he won for a cash of over $4,000.
Nowadays, Mr. Menlo alternates between Online tournaments and high stakes cash games ($50/$100 and $100/$200 NL Texas Hold 'em), with his largest tournament win documented at $31,000, and his best cash game session somewhere around +$80,000. His short-term goal... become a millionaire in the next two months.

JasonKoon 2013-05-18 00:37:09 Mind is blown how @PokerStars SCOOP and @WPT 25k Championship overlap. So sad I won't be able to make it :(
HighlandFox 2013-05-18 00:18:35 @petegotaplan Thanks, Bud! #nittagetowinnage

constantcolorup 2013-05-17 22:26:56 Frustrating day but still pretty good net, won 82hyper for ~6k, 4th in ipoker 100r for ~5.5k and a bunch of other cashes, SCOOP airball tho
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:21:03 @xtremepedro01 I actually think it'll be under 400 & can forsee problems for late comers being blinded off 'cause they changed the format
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:17:10 @RandALLin @PokerStars ya makes me think I should just take tomorrow off & rest up
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:16:19 @xtremepedro01 ok so I get some odds that its 400 ? gimme $200 to my $100 and its booked
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:11:59 @xtremepedro01 sidebets on how many runners it gets? I'll take the under on 500
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:05:43 @SpaceyFCB @PokerStars if I didn't know they changed the format I could have ez showed up late & blinded out of a 3 handed game not ring
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:04:34 @SpaceyFCB @PokerStars ya that would work... guess I'm just annoyed that I reg'ed for something weeks ago & they change the format
RandALLin 2013-05-17 22:04:08 @KevinMacPhee @PokerStars I don't even think it's a 2 day event. Having to play 4 rounds would affect my sleep for Sundays probably too.
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:59:33 @SpaceyFCB @PokerStars so a mix-max shootout? not a 10 handed shootout as advertised? seems like a good idea for a format tho..
RandALLin 2013-05-17 21:59:19 @rcdaut loool
Jymaster11 2013-05-17 21:50:06 Ohhhhhhhh whaaaaaaaaaat, Scooter choppin event #14 for $122,000 snonks @scpokertrojans
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:48:26 @StarsRegProblms nah being a bitch would be more like sitting behind an anonymous account insulting people you clearly know
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:47:05 @PakmanMMA the shootout format is the purest format.. no ICM & adapting 9 handed to sh to HU... starting 3-4 handed tbl 1 feels like mix max
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:45:35 @RandALLin @PokerStars seems that way to me... assuming it gets 300-400 ppl... would be LOL if it gets 200-300 & some tables are HU matches
