Phil Ivey Now Playing As RaiseOnce At PokerStars, Probably

Recently, online poker pro ‘RaiseOnce’ has made a reappearance at PokerStars’ high-stake cash tables, sending poker fans everywhere rallying to watch the player strongly suspected of being none other than Phil Ivey.
Apparently, RaiseOnce has made several visits to PokerStars since 2008, and has often been seen playing at stakes as high as $1,000/$2,000 on the world’s largest poker site. Pokertableratings shows RaiseOnce having lost $100,408 over 22,100 hands played at PokerStars’ cash tables since June 2009.
Nevertheless, RaiseOnce rose to prominence on PokerStars in 2010 after winning the $25,500 WCOOP Event #39 (NLHE HU) for $348,750, despite still remaining anonymous. In addition to his victory in the event, bluffmagazine also shows RaiseOnce having won a further $54,611 playing MTT’s on the site.
With Full Tilt Poker still inoperational and PokerStars’ Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP)  running from January 19th to 29th, 2012, many poker fans have been drooling at the prospect of RaiseOnce competing at the inaugural tournament poker series.
Analysing the information in front of them, poker enthusiasts have since become convinced RaiseOnce is Phil Ivey, due to a number of factors. These include, but are not restricted to the following:
1: Both play relatively few but high buy-in online tournaments.
2: Similarities in text language used.
3: Both play a wide variety of poker formats, at the highest stakes and at a very high standard.
4: RaiseOnce has a similar playing style to that of Phil Ivey’s, according to various TwoPlusTwo posters, which is as follows; cold calling preflop 48%, flop cbet 93%, flop check-raise 32%, call river bet 49%, and fold BB to steal 34%.
5:  Both play only a few tables at a time and employ a stop-loss strategy to their losing sessions.
6: The account is located in Mexico where Phil Ivey is known to have a house.
7: In 2010 RaiseOnce and Phil Ivey were both playing on PokerStars and Full Tilt respectively, and both were seen to have been disconnected then reconnected at the precise same time.
During his latest appearance at PokerStars, the pro widely  believed to be Phil Ivey played a number of sessions, which included the $400/$800 8-game, $1,000/$2,000 H.O.R.S.E and $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha. Unfortunately for RaiseOnce, he was the weekend’s biggest loser on the site, but in all probability that won’t remain the case for long.
