As PokerNews.com recently reported, Daniel “lucky_scrote” Carter recently won five online tournaments in one week, upping his lifetime winnings to a robust $1,364,324.
The epithet “lucky_scrote” (can it be an “epithet” if you give it to yourself?) got us, first, laughing and, second, thinking: what are the best nicknames out there in his heyday of online poker? We’ve scoured the seemingly endless depths of poker pros – both online and live – to come up with our top-five.
(5) Steve Zolotow – “The Bald Eagle”
This first one actually stems from live play. Why is it so good? The dude really does look like a bald eagle. See for yourself:
(4) Sam Grizzle – “4KingAceHole”
It’s a little Mad Gab-ey, but is funny and still poker-related. Full marks!
(3) David Ring – “amishdriveby”
In case you’re having trouble figuring out why this one is funny, Google “amish cars”.
(2) Chris Argento – “NotACmputr”
Isn’t that exactly what a computer would call itself?
(1) Rusty Roth – “RustyRust”
Ha. I expect a lot of disagreement on this one being No. 1. But can’t you just picture Rusty Roth sitting there, typing in “Rusty” as his choice of screen name, looking incredibly sad when he learns it’s already taken, and then thinking to himself: “But my Rusty-ness is my defining quality! I have to make this work somehow.”
