About James

James aka “TheDrunkLife” on PokerStars is a professional high stakes Sit-n-Go tournament player. In 2012 James reached Supernova Elite status on PokerStars for the first time, while becoming one of the biggest 6-max Sit-n-Go winners on the network. This accomplishment was especially meaningful for James, who had enjoyed success on Full Tilt Poker as “BigGamesJames” prior to Black Friday, due to the hardships he endured on his climb back to the top.

James left the USA in October of 2011 to resume his career as an online poker player after being essentially unemployed since April 15th 2011. At the time, James was beyond broke. James has lived in multi-million dollar houses and popped bottles around the world. He’s also slept on strangers’ couches and lived out of a suitcase. He’s called 5 different countries home, and hopes to explore many more as life rolls on. This blog is a open forum for James’ stories, struggles and successes. It is his hope to share inspiration with others.
