Felix Stephensen is an online poker pro from Oslo, Norway but he now resides in London, England. Born on July 22, 1990, this young poker player makes his living playing poker for 5 years now. He primarily sticks to online games and plays under the online screen name “FallAtyourFeet” and according to online tracking records, has up more than $300,000 since 2011. His preferred game of choice is $25/$50 pot-limit Omaha tables, and also can be found taking shots as high as $200/$400. He has a good reputation in the online realm with a loyal poker following.
However, in the live game scenario, Stephenson has just two cashes to his resume. The first is a 12th-place finish in the 2009 Norwegian Championships £1,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event, and the other was a 92nd-place finish in the 2013 European Poker Tour Barcelona Main Event.
He is also the first Norwegian to make it to the November Nine 2014 WSOP in its current format (Tormod Roren made the Main Event final table in 1997, but that predated the N9). He’s already locked up the biggest live tournament career cash no matter where he finishes in the November Nine.
