Every now and then, a player with such an incredible track record appears and dominates the online poker landscape, playing and crushing any format and opening up the debate of who is the best player in poker.
Nikas Astedt blows the doors of this debate and maybe the Greatest Of All Time of his generation
Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, Astedt is one of the world’s most accomplished online poker players. He has recorded over $34M in online cashes across all online poker rooms.
He has won the $525 WSOPC Main Event and has claimed five Super MILLION$, three WCOOP and five SCOOP titles. He was ranked the world’s top player for 97 weeks on the Pokerstake.com online poker rankings – longer than any other player!
He has multiple WSOPC Rings, most notably 1st in the WSOPC Main Event in 2021 for $758,443 and 1st in the WSOPC $10,000 Heads Up Championship for $348,250.
One of the world's most successful online players, the only Accolade missing from Niklas trophy cabinet, is a WSOP Bracelet. In 2020 Niklas was denied his first bracelet by Roberto Romanello in the $1,500 No Limit Holdem Event.
Niklas is no stranger to Live felt, though with over $1.7 Million in Total Career earnings and two cashes in the WSOP Main Event, with his best result of 182nd in 2016 for $42,285
