PokerStars Team Online member Jaime Staples is not a high stakes professional poker player. He doesn’t have any World Series of Poker bracelets to his name, no World Poker Tour titles to brag about, not even a six-figure score that caught the attention of the poker community.

In fact, according to The Hendon Mob database, his best live performance is a 43rd place finish in the EPT Dublin Main Event earlier this year for $12,872. But what the 25-year old from Alberta Canada does have is an audience.
