Long Island, New York (they like to combine towns) native Micah Raskin has been a mainstay on the high-stakes poker circuit for the past twelve years. He now sits 650th on the US poker all-time money list with just over $2 million in career WSOP earnings. In this biography piece, we take a look at him and, ultimately, his professional results and steady output on the green felt.

Raskin got started in poker out of sheer love for the game and an unbending determination to learn all its secrets. His formative years on the circuit told a tale of a meteoric rise, with an analytical mind and command of poker dynamics keeping him in high demand as a go-to player in competitive circles. Signing up for his stage had a strong impact on his professional career, giving him a good basis to get going further.

In a career spanning two decades, Micah has played in many high-stakes events, and he has proved time and again that he is a man for the big occasion. So dense has been his bedside reading that he barely sleeps through the night anymore, averaging just a few hours nightly. The Hyper Classic appears to have been a good venue for h.u.p.x. as he had won several of these tournaments and become even more respected by the online poker populace.
