Is Swedetooth the Biggest Luckbox in Poker History?

A few weeks ago, micro grinder "Swedetooth" came out of literally nowhere to take down the Sunday MegaMillions and $1.2 Million. It was BY FAR one of the greatest upsets in online poker history.

He was heads-up with pocket kings against G1LD3NSTRN and after an ace hit the board, he decided to shove. G1LD3NSTRN made the call with A-K and looked to win his 2nd Sunday MegaMillions title. That was until Swedetooth spiked a miracle king on the river.

Rumor has it that Swedetooth was backed by both "REALTommyPhuoc" and high-stakes maniac "BALLS!"  Granted, I can see why BALLS! would gamble on a nobody, but it sorta surprised me about Phuoc backing him.

Maybe they are buddies. I don't know, but considering that Phuoc seems to be willingly sticking to the micros, this move didn't make sense, at least not until Swedetooth shocked the world.

Swedetooth is by far the biggest luckbox we have seen in this game in a long time. That's right, I said it. He is a luckbox. After looking at some of the hand histories of his play that are posted on 2+2, I can see why this kid is a micro grinder.

In addition, he also suffered probably the most embarrassing beatdown recently when he lost  $600,000 of that score to TurkeyJerky. Seriously? TurkeyJerky?

How do you drop $600k to his guy? Even Allen Kessler turns a healthy profit against this guy. TurkeyJerky is the only guy that loses to Isildur1 in Omaha.

How bad is this guy? Pros actually leave games with Gus Hansen in order to play him. In the newest edition of Webster's Poker Dictionary, the definition of donkey is simply a picture of Swedetooth's avatar.

Simply put, Swedetooth could be Congress' example on how poker could be viewed as a game of luck. At this rate, it won't be long before this kid is broke, if he isn't already.

It could be worse I guess. At least he doesn't have Eskimo Clark backing him ... yet.

    Three things. 1. Learn your history regarding Isildur1 and Gus and you will know why those comments were made. 2. Hastings likes pizza. 3. Before you call someone a moron "auther", learn how to use spell check. It is your friend. Even Swedetooth uses spell check.

    I think you are a moron auther, whoever you are. the way you write is allmost as if you regard isildur and gus to be total donkeys yet they are just the worst amongst the best in the world. Go eat a cheeseburger with hastings lol, no but srsly you dont know what you are talking about

    Give Chase a freakin break ! After all, he has to deal with Tommy and Balls every day. How can he focus on his play when he has Tommy multi-tabling and playing "Starcraft" on one side, and Balls on the other side , open shoving every hand ? I'd be a lousy player too ! Jus sayin.....

    I resent your Omaha comment about me. I also don't like the fact that he took the name of my home country and is an absolutely fish. I met SwedeTooth at the bar in Australia during the Aussie Millions. He's a clown. KO'ed first in the Main. Just terrible.

    Not True. All three of these donkeys are REAL. They have multi-accounts with different names. I get donked by them all the time.
