An unidentified online poker player located in Canada has been crushing the high-stakes games on PokerStars.
The player 1Il|1Il|1il|, who the community has been calling “Barcode”, has been taking on all comers including Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen and Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky.
Yesterday Barcode took Isildur1 to the cleaners for $173k and officially hit $1.2 million in profit in the month of October alone.

Barcode first appeared on the high-stakes scene in late 2011 and initially lost nearly $200k before going on a huge heater that saw him finish the year with over $1 million in profit.
In 2012 Barcode dropped just over $500k before taking a six-month break from PokerStars. He returned in late September and has red-hot ever since.
Barcode’s true identity has yet to be revealed but poker fans have speculated it could belong to Di “trex313” Dang, former UB Poker sensation XBLINK or even Tom Dwan. It remains to be seen whether the account actually belongs to a Canadian.
According to hsdb.com Barcode is far and away the biggest winner this month with $1.2 million but the also lesser-known LewisFriend is second with $784k in profit.
The patpatman account, which is rumored to belong to one of the Macau businessmen, is currently the biggest loser this month having lost just over $1 million.
