Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger wins Triton Poker tournament
Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger is one of the best players in online poker. He is only 22 years old, but has already been earning millions of dollars online, crushing rivals at high limits. Until recently, Linus was a completely non-public person, but in 2017, he played the first live tournament and revealed his identity.
«At some point, it was bound to happen. You can’t stay hidden forever. I would prefer to stay in the shade since publicity does not give you any advantages, quite the opposite, especially in poker», Linus Loeliger told reporters right after revealing.
Yesterday, the guy won his first prestigious poker title at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series London 2019. For the £25 000 event, the organizers appointed an additional game day since players didn’t finish it at the appointed time. Linus Loeliger started the final table of the tournament as a chip leader.
