Jordan "Jymaster0011" Young Best Online Tournament Player In 2010

Jordan “Jymaster0011” Young has won the 2010 PocketFives Yearly Leaderboard PLB after an exceptional year in which he accumulated an incredible 19,057 PLB Points.
The US online pro had such an outstanding year that he even confessed on his Tweet account that; “I don’t want it to be 2011, 2010 was the best year of my life.”
Michigan’s Jordan Young managed to achieve his number 1 PocketFives world online rankings in 2010, helped by a major boost to his bankroll after winning two major tournaments on August 1st.
In what is considered one of the most remarkable feats in online history, “Jymaster0011” first won the Full Tilt Poker $750,000 Guaranteed after besting a field of 3,466 players at the $200 buy-in tournament to collect $132,787.
On the very same day, “Jymaster0011” then went on to also take down the $240 Full Tilt Sunday Brawl, where he overcame a field of 2,585 players to add a further $104,951 to his expanding bankroll.
Commenting on his astounding double victory, Young said:
“I think it’s completely ridiculous. I know I’ll never have another day online like that again. I might have a bigger payday online, but it’s going to be because of one tournament; it’ll never be because of winning two really big tournaments. At the time, I didn’t realize how amazing I ran that day. It was a big stress reliever to set myself up comfortably financially.” 
Another notable victory that month included winning the Full Tilt $150 Rebuy for $79,784 plus the same tournament again in December for an additional $76,623.
“I had a really bad October and November, so I really wanted to put in a ton of volume in December. It was really nice to have great back-to-back Sundays,” commented the online pro.
Congratulations to Jymaster0011 on winning the prestigious 2010 PocketFives Yearly Leaderboard PLB and we look forward to following his progress throughout 2011. In the meantime, according to PocketFives “Jymaster0011” has already earned an impressive $1,865,983 playing online tournaments throughout his short career.
