    Question bldswttrs in Korea?

    Could this be true???

    A guy flying Korean Air said that he saw BLDSWTTRS playing in Korea last year. He said that

    1) bldswttrs is an ivy league professor who visits Seoul every spring
    2) he advertises by losing huge in small casino games to get invited to private cash games
    3) that he is the sickest hand reader alive

    When asked how he knew it was him, he gave a vague "I am not at liberty to explain that" answer. So this could be total BS and I ignored it for months. But, recently: I was talking to my buddy who plays in Seoul and he did say that there was a caucasian professor who visited from time to time, nicknamed "the vacuum", who DESTROYED the game for several days last May, calling with Jack hi and being right, etc.

    Do we already know who BLD is (I dont) or is this possibly a legit sighting of him???

    Default bldswttrs prob not

    First, I see that this area was for intros, not random news. Sorry about that. Hi, I play midstakes NL. Now that is done the moderator can feel free to delete this whole thing. Long story short, i doubt bldswttrs and vacuum are same person anyway.

    Turns out vacuum once made a correct TENHI call of huge river shove, is a freak of nature, BUT did not grind online, has long been employed full time in non poker job, etc. Bldswttrs is rumored to have left US after black friday which would rule out being ivy league prof. And ya can't have been bld while holding down regular job (bld was multi table god online) which rules out vacuum.

    PS fyi who cares, Bldswttrs was a mysterious online pro who made BAANK in the early days of online poker. People have been curious for years who he was. Totally crushed 10/20nl and changed the game forever with his style. Once a true poker God, then vanished.

    Is anyone playing in seoul right now. Vacuum is there now. No confirmation that he is bld but several regs say there is a big Caucasian who is basically psychic at the reads, destroying the coex game (gangnam).


    Edited update: game over now. Not many responses here so end of thread.

    Lightbulb Any chance: same guy as "Raising Cain", a boss from advanced poker training?

    [QUOTE=seoulbrotha;2259865]Could this be true???

    So, I may know who this is...

    >>>A guy flying Korean Air said that he saw BLDSWTTRS playing in Korea last year. He said that

    >>>1) bldswttrs is an ivy league professor who visits Seoul every spring
    >>>2) he advertises by losing huge in small casino games to get invited to private cash games
    >>>3) that he is the sickest hand reader alive

    Kinda sounds like this dude on #1 and #3:

    APT website says:

    Ivy-League professor by day, Cain plays 1000BB deep in underground "executive games." He has unearthly hand-reading abilities and, scoring 150-160 on poker IQ tests, Cain is a genius on the felt. Rumored to coach for $1600/hr.
