Sulsky’s 10 sessions in September total 4,919 hands, meaning he is averaging $66,000 profit per session this month and $136 profit per hand. His heater has come on PokerStars.
According to HighStakesDB, “He has netted a staggering profit in a short period of time, crossing the $1,000,000 mark just a year after he began playing online.” He is up almost $5 million on PokerStars alone after HighStakesDB began tracking him four years ago.
Sulsky has turned $3.5 million profit at Pot Limit Omaha and $1.5 million at No Limit Hold’em. He has bled $46,000 at Omaha High-Low and $174,000 at Draw Games. He has logged 534,000 hands all-time and is averaging about $9 profit per hand played. Not too shabby.
A total of four players have profited over $100,000 since September began, according to the tracking site:
1. Sauce123– 10 sessions, 4,919 hands, $669,754 profit
2. Isildur1– 41 sessions, 9,185 hands, $523,837 profit
3. RaiseOnce– 29 sessions, 3,896 hands, $319,650 profit
4. RaulGonzalez– 9 sessions, 1,043 hands, $147,089 profit
In case you’re wondering how Sulsky managed to become such a prolific player in the first place, HighStakesDB explained, “Sauce’s poker journey began as a college student on a spring break trip to Mexico. With a lot of time to kill, he immersed himself in poker books and strategy forums and developed a rudimentary strategy that he took to the online felt upon his return. He experienced a fair amount of success early on and climbed the stakes using strict bankroll requirements.”
Sulsky has also hit it big in the live tournament world. According to the Hendon Mob, he has $1.7 million in career live winnings and is #11 on the all-time money list for Massachusetts. He finished fourth in this year’s High Roller for One Drop event at the World Series of Poker for $1.1 million. He also final tabled the Poker Player’s Championship for another $353,000.
