A mystery online pot-limit Omaha player who goes by his moniker “cumicon” recently announced his retirement on TwoPlusTwo. His post took the entire poker community by storm with many top pros latching on to the hype, all since the player had posted an incredible results graph that showed $7.4 million in heads-up cash game winnings across 1.3 million hands played between January 1, 2013 and November 12, 2017!
The games in question ranged from $2/4 PLO up to $200/400 with most of his profits coming from stakes $5/$10 ($1.4 million), $10/$20 ($1.5 million) and $25/$50 ($3 million).
The results are nothing short of epic as almost every line on the graph i.e. net winnings, showdown winnings, and all-in expected value posted by the player show a steady upward trend eventually touching the $7 million peak.
The expected value-adjusted winnings column in an accompanying chart mentioned that cumicon “should have” won $8.4 million.
According to his profile, the player is a 30-year-old man originally from New York.
In his post, cumicon wrote, “I am quitting poker and want to share my graph now that I don’t need to worry about killing any potential action I might get. I always enjoyed seeing inspiring graphs posted on 2p2, so I’m happy to contribute mine.”
Unlike most other players who spend countless hours working on their game, cumicon claimed that he put minimal work to improve his game during this period. He further went on to clarify that he had omitted his highest-variance results from nosebleed games since he had sold significant portions of action for those games.
Given these results, cumicon may very well be one of the biggest winners in the history of online poker.
After the post, a number of well-known online poker players expressed their amazement seeing his results.
Cole “CTS” South posted, “Unmatched level of both skill and work ethic. Big congrats and well deserved. Good luck with whatever you get into next!”
Joe Ingram wrote, “So ridiculous, can’t even put it into words properly,”
While cumicon might not be the most recognizable name among poker fans, he certainly has played some of the biggest games online against top competition.
According to PokerNews, cumicon has been in the news more than a few times when the user grinded nosebleed PLO matches, most prominently when he topped the list of weekly winners after a match against Dani Stern. Apart from Stern, cumicon has also played against known online crushers like Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom and “BERRI SWEET.
On his way up, cumicon claims to have played more hands against regulars than nearly anyone else, and his graph would certainly appear to support that claim with the sheer volume he has put in.
According to his profile on PocketFives, cumicon has also dabbled in online tournaments with about $170,000 in total cashes. The most prominent score among those came in 2010, when he shipped the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $128,000 after a four-way deal.
At the close of what would appear to be the end of one of the most successful careers in online poker history, cumicon left no hints as to his identity or future plans. He simply asked that nobody pester him with coaching requests.
