Most successful poker players revel in the spotlight, and grab any chance they can to get more attention. There’s nothing wrong with this either since it is perfectly natural for people to want recognition for their accomplishments. But that’s precisely why it’s so strange that online poker sensation “fyrtuk” chooses to remain anonymous despite having several big finishes on the resume.
All that is really known about fyrtuk is that this player is from Hungary, and has made hundreds of thousands of dollars already this year. To be more accurate, fyrtuk has cashed for over $815,000 in 2009, and is ranked third on the Poker Pro Labs Multi Table Top Shark of the Year board.
“fyrtuk” was able to move up our leaderboard rankings rather quickly after taking first place in Event #22 of the FTOPS series. After grabbing the victory in this $5,000 tournament, fyrtuk received $625,000 which makes up a large percentage of the $815,000 earned this year. Other big cashes this year for fyrtuk include an 8th place finish in the Full Tilt $1 Million Guaranteed ($20,600), and a 16th place finish in an FTOPS Super Stack tournament ($10,000).
With the year only halfway over and plenty of money still left to be won, fyrtuk definitely has a good chance to top the $1 million mark in winnings this year. And the Hungarian will have to keep marching at this pace or better in order to catch the top players on our Multi Table Tournaments leaderboard. Seeing as how fyrtuk has fared so well in the big events, there is definitely time to capture Top Shark of the Year honors.
