The featured guest on last Sundays edition of Rounders was poker professional and online specialist Brett Jungblut. There's no doubt Brett Jungblut was in the chips, when he won the Omaha Hi-Lo Championship at the WSOP 2004. But this 26-year-old internet poker-playing whiz is still in the chips - this time with a phenomenal number of internet poker wins, and his enormous collection of vintage poker chips.
In the 12 months since he won his first gold WSOP bracelet, Jungblut has not only continued to dominate on internet poker sites, he has also accumulated more than 30,000 vintage clay poker chips. These chips, manufactured from the 1890s to WWII, range in value from $5 to $50 each. A significant part of his collection is devoted to rare chips issued by private clubs . The chips are collected worldwide by both poker and antique dealers, and are sold on the internet.
Widely known as "Gank" on the internet poker sites, Jungblut has also racked up a stellar number of poker wins . Currently, he is ranked #2 for the year on Poker Stars. Gank is well-known on the poker-playing circuit, not only for his aggressive game style, but also because he is known to play up to 10 games simultaneously. No easy feat, but Jungblut has mastered this multi-gaming strategy. He has made more than 50 final tables on Pokerstars, alone, this year.
