Hailing from Texas, Adam Geyer has been dominating the tournament poker scene for well over ten years now. Before Black Friday happened in 2011, the Austin-born pro put the majority of his volume in at the online tables on PokerStars (as ‘simmsux’) and Full Tilt (as ‘csimmsux’). The dream of every online grinder became a reality for Adam when he won the Sunday Million on PokerStars – making a deal to chop for $156,000. This gave him the bankroll to comfortably play the larger buy-in events which worked out well for Geyer.
Between 2007 and 2011, Adam racked up more than $2,000,000 in MTT winnings and ranked in the top 0.1% of online tournament players in all but one year on Official Poker Rankings’ leaderboard. His biggest wins included an FTOPS Main Event win back in 2009, where Geyer pocketed $456,056 for the victory. This was csimmsux’s third FTOPS title, making him one of the more decorated tournament players on Full Tilt.
After Black Friday, Adam focused primarily on playing live tournament poker since he wanted to stay based in the U. S.. Fortunately for him, he made this work as his online experience gave him an advantage over many of the weaker players that populate the live circuit. Since 2011, Geyer has put together more than $2,000,000 in results. This total has been boosted by some particularly lucrative scores as of late. In 2016, he finished runner-up at the $7,500 WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Championship where he earned $752,800. Losing in the heads-up battle to a deserved winner in German talent Stefan Schillhabel, the final table was packed with skilled players that included Anthony Gregg, Connor Drinan and Maria Ho.
The following year, Adam picked up another hefty six-figure score when he took second in the $1,600 No Limit Hold’em event at The Venetian in Las Vegas. Though disappointed to not claim the trophy, Adam’s entire live career hasn’t been plagued by runner-up finishes. In 2009 whilst he was still playing online, he picked up a WPT title after winning the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em event at the fifth Bellagio Cup.
Based off the strength of Adam’s live performances in recent years, we can expect to see him regularly on the North American poker circuit in the future.
