Golser thrills railbirds; rebuys for $1 million

Markus Golser
Full Tilt Pro Markus Golser. He's wealthy.

Technically, buying in for $1 million at a $1,000/$2,000 Limit table online doesn't really give you an advantage over a shorter-stacked opponent.

But it certainly does get the railbirds all jacked up.

Such was the case yesterday when, after dropping 10 consecutive $20k buy-ins in a session with another of the world's best Limit players, Matt "Hoss_TBF" Hawrilenko, Austrian poker pro Markus Golser soiled some railbird shorts - and possibly Hawrilenko's - with a $1 million re-buy.

A pre-emptive strike on the "Golser is busto" thread? A pure showtime move for the rail? A statement to Hawrilenko about his bottomless bankroll?

We'll never know for sure. What we do know however is that he still ended the session $200k+ in the hole - although it seemed not to be much of a sweat for him, as he was more than a gracious loser in the chat with Hawrilenko after.

His only suggestion? Hawrilenko buy him a few drinks at this year's biggest pots won online over the last day, week, month and year, jump to the MarketPulse section.
