Poker Gambler "XWINK" And His "Weird Martingale" System

Every so often a poker player comes along who is willing to put aside the rules of good bankroll management and lay it all on the line for a shot at the big time.
One such player was “XBLINK” who went on a winning streak at Ultimatebet back in 2009, eventually running an $11 stake up to $833,193 in just over a month. XBLINK’s statistics on pokertableratings still show him as a $1,154,152 winner on the site even now.
At the time “XBLINK” was rumoured to be a 21 year-old player from Vancouver, Canada and now the same player is thought to have made another run at the big time, this time under the screen name “XWINK” at Full Tilt.
This time around “XWINK” managed top spin a $4,000 bankroll up to $2 million over the period of just four days” and posting his story on the 2+2 poker forum under the alias “89libst,” he wrote:
“A) $4K to $2M in four days. Did this with my excellent bankroll management skills.
 B) Lose $1.2M in one day.
 C) Sit around with remainder, probably cash out half a million dollars or   something.
 D) Will continue to play to entertain you guys.”
On this his most recent run, “XWINK” hit his peak over four days playing against such players as Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen, Rui Cao, David Benefield and Tom “durrrr” Dwan.
However, the wheel came off his joy ride after playing 3,211 hands of $300/$600 PLO and $500/$1,000 Cap PLO against Cole South, Phil Ivey, jungleman12 and NoParasan, in which he lost $1.2 million over one day.
However, “XWINK” is still showing a healthy profit for his efforts and some of the top online pros have been wondering how he does it.
One thing for sure is that many pros have been criticising his level of skill, which accounts for the fact so many players were lining up to play him.
Also the fact “XWINK” played a maximum of 243 hands at the same table before moving to the next indicated strongly he was taking a hit and run approach to the game. In fact an online chat between “durrrr” and “skjervoy” recently went as follows:
Skjervoy: you played him?
durrrr: ya just for a few mins
durrrr: won rly small like 20k
durrrr: he was just 1tbling
Skjervoy: he changes tables every third second with some weird martingale going on…
durrrr: ahh k
However “XWINK” or “XBLINK” has been able to take a small bankroll and run it into millions within a short time will continue to have poker enthusiasts scratching their heads in disbelief. In the meantime, the online rocket will continue to attract great interest from fans everywhere whenever he launches one of his now famous assaults.
