If you have ever railed a high limit cash game online, you have probably seen Ozzy87 slugging it out. Ozzy87, aka Aurangzeb Sheikh, was born in Pakistan and currently lives in the US, destroying people online.
Ozzy87 got his start playing smaller buy-in tournaments, under the name BigSlick789. If you have access to thepokerdb.com, you will see that Ozzy87 started out playing the smallest buy-ins available, and then slowly worked his way up to higher rebuy tournaments, where he had much success.
Aurangzeb took a big step when he placed 6th at the 2006 PCA tournament, taking an extremely bad beat when his pocket rockets got cracked. However, Ozzy87 took home $177,200.00 for his troubles, and was on his way.
After this big cash, Ozzy87 decided to focus more on cash games, making his home at the biggest No Limit Tables available on PokerStars, and then spreading out to other sites online. If you want to watch Ozzy87 play now, the best place to find him would be the high limit No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha tables on Full Tilt Poker, slugging it out with the likes of Phil Ivey and David Benyamine.
Ozzy has been on a bit of a cold streak as of late, and has taken quite a hit in early 2007. However, I have no doubt that he will turn it around and end up having a great year in 2007. Ozzy87 is an extremely aggressive player, which leads to significant fluctuations in your bankroll. You can expect to hear plenty from Ozzy87 in the future, especially when he becomes old enough to play in the World Series of Poker events.
