Jamie Gold slowly built up his bankroll and now is one of the big winners on high stakes poker.

John Juanda has said that he bought in for 100 dollars at a 1-3 stud game and just worked his way up from there, moving up in limits as his bankroll allowed. He said that unlike most other poker players, he has never gone broke.

I was playing in a home game for a few months and I got to know the dealer pretty well and he seemed like a nice honest guy. This was before the famous Moneymaker WSOP, but he told me that Sammy owed him $800 and that he was basically a huge degenerate who borrowed money from multiple people. Not sure what that was about.

Is Andy Bloch still gambling with his MIT-BJ money ? He makes me feel sick. He probably couldn't beat NL25$.

Didn't Farha play Pac Man for money to start his bank roll?

I have no idea why you feel that way. The few times I've watched Andy play he was pretty solid. As far as what I've heard he's also skilled in more than just hold'em.

Antonius doesn't count in this category. He made an absolute fortune as an affiliate long before his cash game success.
