Poker Players and Their BIZARRE Pseudonyms

by Donna Amo Posted on 05 Jan, 2021

When you play poker online, you are bound to come across many interesting and wild usernames. Along with giving players a guise to play under, online names can also be fun and memorable. Many popular poker players are often recognized by their pseudonyms. Let’s take a look at some of the interesting names we have come across on Spartan Poker and the players behind them.

1. Kanchan ‘Midge Maisel’ Sharma

With a username like ‘Midge Maisel,’ Kanchan Sharma is showing the world what girl power is all about. This poker star was first introduced to the game back in 2017 and although relatively is a new player, she packs quite a punch. Her username cropped up during the final table for the India Poker Championship (IPC) Final Table Series on November 2020, where she finished fourth and took home an impressive INR 13,79,136. Play on Spartan Poker and you might catch her in action on one of the upcoming IOPC tournaments.

2. Arjun ‘lol this guy’ Pasricha

Guess who won a massive INR 40 Lakh at the IPC Final Table Series in November? It was none other than Arjun Pasricha aka ‘lol this guy.’ It seems like Pasricha kept the username for this exact reason, that people would aptly go ‘lol this guy’ when referring to his biggest win. Watch out for this unassuming username on the Spartan Poker platform just in case you manage to play against him.

3. Srihari ‘Bangbang99’ Bang

Srihari Bang clearly knew what he was doing when he gave himself the username of ‘BangBang99.’ But don’t be fooled by this innuendo because ‘BangBang99’ is one of the best players out there on the online felts. Despite his young age, Bang is more than capable of giving experienced poker players a run for their money. His most notable win has to be the massive INR 48 Lakh from winning the 2019’s IOPC Millionaire. So, don’t slump the next time your see this username, you just might be playing with the best.

4. Ashutosh ‘SpewMonkey’ Balodhi

We may not know why Ashutosh Balodhi gave himself the username of ‘SpewMonkey’ but looks like it worked for him splendidly when he bagged Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire Main Event. This dog-loving pro is certainly one to look out for when playing on Spartan Poker platform. You can check out this Feature Friday for more details on Balodhi.

5. Arsh ‘BigggTymeR’ Grover

Arsh Grover definitely lived up to his username considering he did make it big time when he won the FTS Kickoffs in November 2020 and then went on to top the FTS leaderboard as well. He is an avid player and you can spot him grinding on many poker platforms. With a user name like ‘BigggTymerR,’ you can tell that Grover is pretty confident about his skills and is aiming sky high.
