In the United States, Black Friday is a watershed moment for poker players who have no other means of keeping up their online grind. In order to keep using the most popular online poker sites like PokerStars and Full Tilt, many players left the country at the time.
Those who didn’t want to leave their native countries adapted to their new circumstances by playing poker in person. Tony Dunst, better known by his nickname “Bond18,” is a two-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner and a pundit for WPT events.
The professional, who calls Las Vegas home, registered with WSOP.com in 2013 using the handle “Panoramic.” The final day of 2018 was the first time Dunst participated in any of the site’s events. Since then, he has amassed a “INSANE” chart after playing 1,861 games on the site’s little grid.
According to Tony Dunst’s SharkScope, he has made $1,209,978. The sum represents the prize money the professional collected throughout the course of his career, with his biggest score being $167,143 in a 2020 WSOP Online event, when he also won his second bracelet.
The second largest payout, at $163,650, is for finishing second in WSOP Event #1 ($5,300 Freezeout) in 2022. Dunst has developed his stunning chart from pots ranging from $57,000 to $46,000, with great stability and few events on the grid given by the site, which now has a common pool with New Jersey and Michigan.
