In poker you win some, you lose some, and hope you come out ahead, but in Ethan “Rampage” Yau’s poker life those swings have seen him swing from a $150k cash game punt to a $50k WSOP Circuit ring win in the space of just a few days…
The 24-year-old Massachusetts-born pro is picking up poker accolades as quickly as subscribers to his hugely-popular YouTube channel it seems.
Sharing his recent huge loss at the Hustler Casino Live, however, brought out the kind of comments rarely seen in poker, from a fanbase that really seems to care about Yau…
That honest video followed a brutal night at the televised cash game tables, which saw Yau pick up big slick in the big blind at the worst possible moment.
Garrett Adelstein’s cut-off raise was as far from a steal as it’s possible to get, pocket aces in the hole and a world of hurt awaiting “Rampage”…
Things got even worse for Yau as Garrett was once again waiting to pick up the pieces when the youngster bluffed massively on the river – a painful $150k loss, the biggest of Yau’s short career.
Yau, however, hasn’t picked up a huge following by running away and licking his wounds, and he was soon back in action, swapping the cash game tables for some tournament fun and games…
Rampage is crushing both live and online tournaments
For most players, binking a big win less than two years after taking up the game would be good enough, Yau bagging $164,494 and an online bracelet in the summer of 2020.
For Ethan, though, there was more to come, a live win worth $230k at the MSPT last autumn putting his bankroll in a good place.
Losing a huge chunk against Adelstein didn’t help, of course, but he’d already scooped $53k earlier this month with an online WSOP Circuit win, which he vlogged in style!
Shrugging off the big cash game loss, Yau then landed ring number 3 to go with his bracelet…

…and just to show he was truly back in the game, a sweet “bink” online to round off an amazing few weeks…
