Guys probaly a multi multi multi millionaire ffs,couple mill is prob not as much as people think it is to him/her.
Why are you assuming he is a multimillionaire? Why would he play 10K hands really low then? In the start.

My guess is he is a gigantic fluke, and a man who can't control either himself, "the fame" or his own money.

I'm not sure if it is accurate either, but he did have $2 million or so spread across the tables when the games broke.

Because if he had started playing HS, everyone would have known from the start that he is a multi.

well, I've played millions of hands and I wouldn't put a lot of stock into any 32,000 batch of them. Yes they are a little more valid against all one opponent because there are less variables. But the fact that they played most of them 6 tables at a time over very few days also makes it a weaker sample size then if they had been played over a longer period of time. External variables are more likely to have an effect over such a short period.

You could be sleep deprived over most of a 1-2 day period, or in a bad mindset cause of a personal issue etc. Its much less likely that the outside variables will stay the same if they play the same 32,000 hands over 6 months then it is if you play them over 3 days for instance.

Anyways I don't have a variance simulator, but if you run the 32,000 Hands through one, over a few 100 independent trials I'm sure you would get some vastly different results.

In this thread someone ran 67,000K hands (almost twice as many) played by Durrrr through a variance simulator 50 times and got some very different results.
