Casey “BigDogPckt5s” Jarzabek is one of these pros who is perpetually on the fence of becoming a massive name in poker…if he’d only leave his house.
The longtime online poker pro has some of the sickest results in all of online poker, one of the most popular tournament training sites and, yet, can still, as a 40-year old poker professional, be mistaken as an “old man” recreational donk.
For me, when I first started playing MTTs online, I was really good friends with ‘Dipthrong’ (Mark Herm). He was friends with ‘DJK’ (Dan Kelly), ‘Jymaster’ (Jordan Young) and ‘Pokerjamers’ (Jamie Armstrong) – all of the young sickos! We used to grind Sundays and all be in the same chat-room. Whenever an interesting hand came up we would stick the hand history in the chat and discuss that amongst literally 15-20 sickos. So I was able to get that young player mentality, because I just happened to be in that group. So I feel like I’m a different type of older player, because I was brought up on the young guys’ style.
Here he talks with Bluff Europe about (almost) everything from his start playing online to his near legendary back-to-back Sunday Millions final table runs and of course, they get a plug in for Tournament Poker Edge.
Good interview with a guy who is always on the verge of making live tournament waves…maybe even at WSOP 2014?
