king is holding up a major heater sign - to recognize a hot playerRussell "rdcrsn" Carson is a great poker player. "Major heater" isn't meant to imply that he is an average poker player who simply got lucky for a week. "rdcrsn" is in fact a great poker player whose results over the past week or so have been eye-poppingly good.

Let's start with last weekend. "rdcrsn", the 24 year old poker player from Canada, started off his weekend by coming second in the "Second Chance" tournament on Pokerstars for $26k. Now that's a great weekend for most players, however Carson didn't stop there.

He also came in third in the Full Tilt Poker $1 Million Dollar Guaranteed tournament the very same day, banking an additional $83k. A $110k haul in just one day - that would be hard to top.

Just one week later, "rdcrsn" did just that.

First off he took down the "Grand Tournament" on Mansion Poker for $141k, besting "CutiePi315" in heads-up play. Then, a few short hours later, "rdcrsn" chopped the $200 rebuy tournament on Pokerstars with "jcamby33" for an estimated $39k.

That's a one day $180k haul, just a week after his $110k payday. "rdcrsn" has the full respect of his peers, and it's not hard to see why - he's a great poker player who we'll be seeing more big things from in the future.
