DDBeast trades up

Today is a day in which we recognize DDBeast. Why? Well, he's a man who is not only a big time player at PokerStars, but also has a life for which a lot of people would trade. You don't think so? Well, let's start of by giving you a look at the 21-year-old.

Looks pretty happy, huh? And why wouldn't he be? He lives in one of America's greatest cities, is still in the prime of his life, and has already graduated from college with a degree in economics. In his spare time, he spends time shooting pool, playing soccer, and boxing. With those things in mind, it's probably pretty clear that the man sitting with DDBeast in the photo below is not a life counsellor. It seems DDBeast has already figured out most of the hard stuff.

In fact, the guy above is the guy who handed DDBeast the keys to a brand new Porsche. PokerStars paid for it after DDBeast cashed in three million Frequent Player Points. DDBeast started playing poker on the day he turned 18 years old. Within six months, he was playing semi-professionally. He graduated from college last May and has been playing full time ever since.

What is full time? For DDBeast, it's 8-12 tables of SNGs with the occasional multi-table tournament thrown in for good measure. It took him just about one year to pick up enough FPPs to get a new ride. He puts it mildly when he says, "The Porsche is quite a nice upgrade from my '93 Miata. I'm loving it!"

Not so bad, eh?
