who actually grinded his way up?

which well-known players have actually grinded up their roll without winning a huge tournament-score,
coming out of a rich family or having made big money with a regular job before playing poker?

It's pretty hard to have confirmed positive "grind" stats live, purely due to volume limitation. That doesn't mean everyone who got a big score is a donk. And it's not our fault online's dead in the US now.

I don't know a single serious live player (I'm not talking big names, just reg poker room players) who doesn't also play online. This whole distinction between live/online is so old fashioned. What is it still 2004?
