Former StarCraft: Brood War player, Markus Gonsalves, is now the 2020 World Poker Tour (WPT) Gardens Poker Champion!

Gonsalves – formerly known as “Proct” during his StarCraft: Brood War days, and currently known as “LURPED” in online poker – was a well-known American StarCraft player who invented “The Stove,” which was described by JonnyCosMo in 2006 as a “type of rush against a terran opponent where you go scouts first, then switch to DT, then mass arbiters and stasis them.” As a fellow Protoss player, I used to be a fan of “The Stove,” as it worked great against low level Terran players on Lost Temple.





On March 14, 2021, Gonsalves went into his heads-up match against Tuan Phan with a 5-1 chip lead, but the match lasted over 90 hands due to the third hand they played, which saw Phan winning a coin flip. According to WorldPokerTour.com, Phan’s “pocket deuces held against Gonsalves’ king-queen, prolonging the match for what would be another three hours.”





The rest of the match highlights, as described by the World Poker Tour, can be read here: “The match predominantly consisted of small pots, with Gonsalves refusing to let Phan close the gap too much. On the other hand, Phan didn’t allow Gonsalves to chip away at his stack. 57 hands after Phan’s initial double up, he was able to double up again. This time, he got it in as a big favorite with ace-six against Gonsalves’ queen-six. Phan’s ace remained best, and for the first time in the heads-up match Gonsalves’ lead was below 2-to-1. Twenty hands later, for the first time at the final table Phan took the chip lead… Phan’s chip lead was short-lived, however, as Gonsalves found a double of his own shortly thereafter. Gonsalves raised all in with ace-ten and Phan thought for a while, using two of his time-extensions before he called with queen-six suited. No help came for Phan, and his tournament ended not long after.
In a limped pot, Phan flopped bottom two pair and committed his stack on the turn. Gonsalves, however, had flopped a flush and called Phan’s all-in raise. A safe river card fell, and with that Gonsalves became the newest WPT champion.”

Gonsalves will meet another member of this final table, Qing Liu, at the WPT Tournament of Champions later in 2021.

congrats to proct.

He actually stole 'TheStove' from a player named 'Masturnate' from the nohunters community - who was the real inventor. (he had done the build vs proct using TheStove as his account. )

Sick. I think I remember seeing the name Masturnate, but I don't remember where.

Either way, it was a fun build order for Protoss back in the day. It was one of those "it's so crazy it just might work!" strategies.

Yes I remember masturnate, he was an older guy in a community of 13 y Olds. And he used to be very creative and probably innovated a bunch of strats/BOs.

Right down memory lane, damn. Nohunters game reports before replays where around was the shit.

was this preflop? how many bb was Phan on still?

someone explain to me calling with Q6s seems like a good idea there if it was preflop with a nontrivial amount of bb's =/

fixed the main page - happens when old main post goes into old posts and has a tweet embedded - you either have to delete the tweet or make it a screenshot

An old trick to make sure an old website works properly.

I should try this casino as well. With this pandemic going on, I must admit that I've spent a lot of time trying to find different types of casinos. I've even seen somewhere you could play with different cryptocurrencies or regular ones like https://207.148.75.135/id-ID/Promotion and now I'm waiting to be able to go to a real-life one. I'm so sick of standing in front of the computer all day long and I'm missing out on the atmosphere of the casino. Thankfully, this pandemic will be over at some point and we will all be able to resume our normal lives. I'm sure of that
