Betcoin Poker's LetsGumBol is on fire taking another top 3 finish in MOSS event #15 $100,000 gtd ....only 36 hours ago.

**NEWS FLASH !! (today)

Rising Star LetsGumbol has yet another huge win at last night I had the joy of railing while our Betcoin "ninɃja" ground out a win in OSS event #20 $150,000.

Earlier in the evening, we had chatted as he final tabled the 60k event:

"Thanks so much. Brings me up over 20k profits past week" (adding last nights win makes this total well over $50,000)

We discussed that he had not yet peaked on this current run at the tables. This run is not a dash but a total marathon with day after day after day of final tables

There were actually 5 or 6 Second Place finishes on this path .... Nothing can drive a player more than multiple 2nd place finishes in a series of tournament poker ..... the elusive 1st place becomes all that
matters. It becomes quite a bit more important than pay jumps on the ladder. It can consume a player, and it drove LetsGumbol to win the $150,00 gtd OSS event 20.

Gumbol 29 year old phenom has been winning daily for weeks.

[1:45:28 AM] LetsGumbol: I've had no sleep in like 3 days. Well like an hour a night but still..
[1:45:44 AM] plo8 monster: your a machine
[1:46:07 AM] plo8 monster: Your playing great poker, you gotta get it on while the getting is good
[1:46:23 AM] LetsGumbol: Let me win enough to quit my job. That's all I want. :)

The following is what LetsGumbol shared with us:

Bankroll Management
Bankroll management has been something that I have struggled with like many other players. I have learned thru my experiences of trying different stakes, as well as trying to be a cash game grinder and an mtt

This has taught me to not play out of my current bankroll and that I am a much better tournament player than I am at cash games. One thing that most people do not understand and adapt to is variance. To deal with variance even the very best players must put in enough volume to come
out ahead. Playing just one tournament will not be enough, you need to play many to be ahead.

Playing the Game of Poker For Years
I have been playing poker for around 13 years now. Started off playing .25/.50 home games for a few years and then gradually made my way online and have mostly played online since then. I have played at Betcoin for 2 or 3 years now I believe. This week I have 12 final tables with 5 second place finishes in pretty good size prize pools. These have been in nlh and plo8 events. The oss and big 10 have been amazing to me so far.

Plo8monster and I have talked many times and developed a close relationship. We have both been around poker for a long time and have had success and of course failure at times as well.

Trust in Betcoin
I trust Betcoin with my entire bankroll. They have always put the player first and will rectify any wrong doing as soon as possible. They have the fastest cash outs I have ever seen making it a clear favorite of
mine. Plus the use of bitcoins is a bonus as I see them being even at a higher value in the coming years.
I have no real need for the money at the moment, well nothing I can think of so most of it will go towards the rest of this tournament series.

Great Community
I love the player base here as they are a very tight nit community. I trust a lot of players here and have given a lot of them stakes, to help them out. I do believe in karma and helping people out at times.
I must give some credit from my 3rd place finish for $5,000 to antonlevay as him and I talked the whole time. Not about hands but just strategy. He kept me calm and focused and I am positive that I would not
have had that much success without his wisdom. (Truly love to see the Community aspect ^^ of Betcoin in action :)

Advice from LetsGumbol
As for advise to players I'd like to say something to the tune of, if you can not currently afford to play poker, don't. Poker has risks involved and it can be a blessing but also disastrous at times. Be careful and don't go losing your rent money. :)

Plo8Monster In Closing

Thanks LetsGumbol for sharing your joy with the community, it is always a pleasure when when you make it by players chat room, your positive vibrant energy is contagious! It is always such a joy for us to watch our players take down life changing amounts of Bitcoin :)

Years ago at Betcoin, we discussed the thing missing from crypto-currency poker was the lack of huge prize pools to draw the players needed so we could compete with larger online casinos. Poker players want to win life changing amounts of money:)

Betcoin is filling that void, (forever changing the face of online poker) as we pioneer the shared tournament concept allowing our players to compete using multiple crypto-currencies. Amazing journey and it only gets better, as daily we welcome new players to the community.

Congratulations LetsGumbol what an amazing run! Keep the drive alive with the upcoming 3 Million dollar guarantees in front of you, this is only the beginning of your story !!

The entire Betcoin community is tuned in Gummy! I honestly have every confidence you can run this up to a million!

Betcoin players stay tuned :)
This is only part 1 of LetsGumbol story !!

Lot of tournaments left in this series,

I really excited to see what you will do thru this balance of this OSS and BOSS series.
You have played stellar poker.
Last nights final table performance proved you can grind it out at any level any stack any player.
There were times when any two were in play as you came from zero to hero more than once to make it happen. On the run up to final table, and again at final table, amazing short stack play to get to final three. Then, facing an opponent with a huge chip lead you isolated and dominated for the balance of a brutally long 3 handed table. I was impressed, and look forward to seeing you keep this drive alive !

So happy for you Gummy!
has it sunk in yet? tell us about it!
