At every World Series of Poker a few players indelibly leave their mark on the summer poker series, and this year was no exception. Out of all the competitors and the entire list of WSOP bracelet winners, the following five people were in my opinion the best of the best:
- Dan Kelly
- David “Bakes” Baker
- Tom Schneider
- Marco Johnson
- Matthew Ashton
In this series I will give a little back-story to each of these players and detail their accomplishments during the 2013 WSOP, and we’ll now be moving on to Marco Johnson.
Poker players may not recognize the name Marco Johnson, but they have likely heard of his online screen-name “CrazyMarco” which was instrumental in launching the investigation into the Super-User accounts at Absolute Poker. You see Marco Johnson was the man who lost to the infamous “PotRipper” account an Absolute Poker and received the enhanced hand histories from the site with the source code that was later deciphered by the poker community.
Johnson isn’t simply some footnote in online poker history though, Johnson is a very accomplished online poker player, and after his 2013 World Series of Poker you can also call him a very accomplished live tournament player as well. After an impressive 2013 WSOP Marco is currently in 6th place in the World Series of Poker Player of the Year race, and has even landed on the BLUFF Magazine Player of the Year leader-board, in 36th place.
Johnson picked up his first WSOP bracelet this year, after cashing seven times and making three final tables. Prior to his win he had finished runner-up on two separate occasions, but for Marco third time was definitely the charm. For his career he now has 24 WSOP cashes including seven final tables.
