Anonymous Poker Players Busts Out of APT Philippines 2013: $10k Pay Day

The world’s first anonymous poker player at a live event promised to pay anybody who managed to kick him out of APT Philipines $1,000, that man was a very pleasantly surprised Mark Dalimore.

Jonas Odman, President of the Bodog Poker Network, who funded the mystery player’s entry, commented: “Zorro did pretty well making Day 2 and we’ll certainly bring him out again at another big tournament in the near future. Anonymous poker is no longer just an online phenomenon.”

Odman explained the concept behind the anonymous poker player concept:  "When we first introduced the Recreational Poker Model we were much ridiculed and so it is satisfying that virtually all major poker rooms have now changed direction and are seeking to improve the poker eco-system by introducing incentives to the all-important net depositing player. While I am not a fan of the Player Segregation Model unveiled by Party Poker recently there is no mistaking the reasoning behind it."

The Zorro-style hat worn by the anonymous poker player was designed and hand made in the UK by Tara O'Callaghan.
