Amazingly, at only 22 years of age, Kamberis has gone from online poker newbie to legendary winner of more than $1 million in just two short years. From Bloomingburg, Indiana, Alex Kamberis has earned in excess of $1 million at PokerStars alone, another $500,000+ at Full Tilt Poker, along with significant cashes at Absolute Poker and UltimateBet, as well.
Though his most common username at online poker sites (PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and UltimateBet) is the most well known, Ã¢â‚¬Å“AJKHoosierÃ¢â‚¬Â, Kamberis can also be found at Absolute Poker using the nickname Ã¢â‚¬Å“aayomagicÃ¢â‚¬Â.
KamberisÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ most recent cash, and largest to date, came just this month. Alex took down the Full Tilt Poker $1,000,000 Guaranteed, whittling his way through a field of nearly 3,000 to take the top prize of $134,895. Just a week later, Kamberis impressed the online poker world again by earning 1st position in Absolute PokerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s $150k GTD, worth $27,500 for the win.
Despite his largest cash coming from Full Tilt Poker only a few weeks ago, Alex maintains his favorite place to play online poker is PokerStars. It comes as no surprise really, seeing as the young poker pro has earned more than $1 million from PokerStars alone.
