Sickest Online Poker Pro Twitter List

There's a lot going on in the poker world, so much so that keeping track of it all can be tough. We're using Twitter's new list feature to remedy this.

Today's list covers the most dominant online poker professionals who also use Twitter.

This is the list for the hard-core online poker nerd since a lot of what these people tweet is unintelligible without a working understanding of poker geek-speak.

Follow PokerListings on Twitter to see our lists and much, much more.

Annette Obrestad is one of the most dominant online MTT players in the world, and the fact that her rise to the upper echelons of online poker began when she was just 15 only makes it more impressive.

Since turning 18 Obrestrad has proven that her skills apply to the live world as well. She took down the WSOPE Main Event and placed second at an EPT major shortly after.

Sorel Mizzi is part of the Betfair Poker crew and does a ton of traveling on the live circuit. That said, he still falls squarely in the online poker pro category.

Mizzi is revered as one of the top MTT players on the Internet and even though he still spends a lot of time playing online, you'll get more out of his Twitter account than bad beat stories and poker updates.

Jason Mercier aka "treysfull21"

Jason Mercier, Team PokerStars Pro and PokerListings blogger, only recently jumped on the Twitter train. His endorsement deal with Stars takes him around the world and he keeps track of everything in tweet form.

This kid is seriously hot in the live and online arenas. If Twitter just isn't getting the job done check out his blog right here on PL.com.

Adam Levy aka "Roothlus"

http://twitter.com/Roothlus

Roothlus is one of the many pros who found their way to poker through Magic: The Gathering.

This means he was already used to retreating from normal society and spending long periods of time shut off from the light of day, the perfect training for an online poker pro!

He plays a lot and does a good job keeping things up to date on Twitter.

Bertrand Grospellier aka "ElkY"

http://twitter.com/elkypoker

Bertrand Grospellier has been one of the winningest live tournament player of the last few years. EPT, WPT and WCOOP titles all contribute to his millions.

Unfortunately right now his Twitter account is just promo for his website but we're hoping that'll change at some point.

Jonathan Little aka "FieryJustice"

http://twitter.com/jonathanlittle

Jonathan Little made plenty of money online before he ever played live and despite all his real-world wins he's still a successful online pro.

He spends a lot of time on Twitter and you can use it to follow him around the world on the big buy-in tournament circuit.

Matt Stout aka "All In at 420"

http://twitter.com/MattStoutPoker

Matt Stout is on the Lock Poker team and he's also a long time blogger right here on PokerListings.com.

Online poker was the perfect fit for Stout's, shall we say, "green" lifestyle. He's a consistent MTT grinder and just made his first major live final table at the recent WPT Foxwoods main event.

In addition to his Twitter account you can follow his blog right here.

Justin Bonomo aka "ZeeJustin"

http://twitter.com/JustinBonomo

Mention ZeeJustin and the cheating scandal that put him on the map still comes up. He's made his apologies, however, and weathered the storm to remain one of the game's top players.

Bonomo is another Magic: The Gathering convert and took to poker in a big way. He's not super active on Twitter at the moment but that might change.

 

Online poker pro twitter avatars

Brett Jungblut aka "gank"

http://twitter.com/gank

Gank's been playing professionally since 1997 and has made more than $1 million playing online tournaments.

Over $400k and a WSOP bracelet do qualify him as a live pro but he's still best known for what he's done on the Internet.

 

Online poker pro twitter avatars

Shaun Deeb aka "shaundeeb"

http://twitter.com/shaundeeb

Even though Shaun Deeb recently announced a hiatus from poker we're still going to include him on this list. He'll be back.

Deeb has more than $2 million in total online tournament wins and had been playing more live events before deciding to take a break November, 2009.

Eric Lynch aka "Rizen"

http://twitter.com/Rizen1020

Rizen kicked off his online career with a win in the Million Dollar Guaranteed tournament on PokerStars back in 2006. Since then he's made well over $1 million in online events alone.

His Twitter account isn't the most interesting thing I've ever seen. Sports, family and poker pretty much covers it.

 

Online poker pro twitter avatars

Jeff Williams aka "yellowsub86"

http://twitter.com/yellowsub86

Jeff Williams won his way to the EPT Season 2 grand final by playing on PokerStars and he ended up taking down the entire event.

That million-dollar score kicked off his live career but he had already built up a wealth of experience online.

His Twitter account is almost all poker updates, not a ton of entertainment.

Kevin Saul aka "BeL0WaB0Ve" aka "GetPWN3D"

http://twitter.com/BeL0WaB0Ve

With close to $2 million in live tournament cashes so far Kevin Saul is no stranger to the big buy-in circuit. It was online, however, where he honed the skills he would put to work in the live arena.

Saul is now giving other players the benefit of his experience as a guest instructor on PokerXFactor.

His Twitter feed is mainly poker updates and communications with other poker pros.

Justin Smith aka "BoostedJ"

http://twitter.com/BoostedJ

Justin Smith has a great story, using poker as a way to make ends meet after suffering serious injuries in a motorcycle accident which confined him to a wheelchair.

Starting from one $50 deposit Smith built up a roll, moved up and now plays in high-stakes games both online and live.

His Twitter account covers pretty much everything he's up to, from poker to personal.

Carter King aka "ckingusc"

http://twitter.com/ckingusc

Carter King has won two of the biggest online tournaments in history. He bagged $1.26 million winning the 2008 WCOOP main event, and another $193k for taking down the Sunday Million back in March, 2009.

All of that pales in comparison to the real reason he's famous. Remember that bong that Michael Phelps was photographed hitting? That was Carter King's bong.

Christian Harder aka "charder30"

http://twitter.com/realcharder30

Christian Harder's another kid who took what he learned online and made it work for him in the live tournament world.

First known for playing above his roll and going broke repeatedly Charder has since compiled an impressive record of tournament and cash profits.

Follow his Twitter feed for updates from big buy-in events all over the world.

Lex Veldhuis aka "RaSZi"

http://twitter.com/RaSZi

Lex Veldhuis has been around for a while but earned a ton of TV time at the 2009 WSOP by playing like some sort of mental patient.

What we're more impressed by is his relationship with Evelyn Ng.

RaSZi uses his Twitter account a lot and for much more than just poker.

 

Online poker pro twitter avatars

Terrence Chan aka "Unassigned"

http://twitter.com/tchanpoker

Terrence "Not Johnny" Chan is known for many things and his online poker prowess is at the top of the list.
