Gibler's Bio

gibler321Harrison Gimbel, AKA gibler321, started playing poker in his early teens. His brother (dapper dan g), who was 15 at the time, would go to a weekly home game with his school friends for a small $10 or $20 buy in. It was typically hosted by Mike (no not baxter), who even built his own poker table. It would vary from a cash game to a tournament depending on the amount of players.

When Harrison was a toddler, his mom would call him the "me too kid". This is because whenever his brother did something that he wanted to do, Harrison would say "me too". His brother was always the nicest kid, so he would let him tag along with him to his friend's home games. Since then, Harrison really hasn't looked back.

Harrison plays a lot of MTTs up to $1k and the $109r. His biggest cash was in the PokerStars weekly $1k where he placed 2nd for $57,377.50. He's never really been an online cash game player, tournaments has always been his love. Since he's only recently turned 18, he doesn't have a lot of experience playing live poker, but he has played some cash games; $1/2 NLHE; $2/5 NLHE; $5/10 NLHE; all $100 max buy in in the state of FL. Florida is implementing a new system for poker that will allow for bigger buy ins, unfortunately for Harrison they are raising the legal age to play poker from 18 to 21.

Harrison joined FCP in the summer of 2006 and credits no not baxter for a lot of his success. "I got into FCP because of no not baxter," said Harrison. "He has really been a huge key for me being the poker player I am today."
