Justin “Boosted J” Smith
Team DeepStacks: Lead Pro
“Boosted J”, a.k.a. Justin Smith, is likely a name you’ve heard before. After a motorcycle accident left him immobile for weeks, the then 17 year old Florida native discovered the world of online poker. He got his start by depositing $50 on PokerStars and grinding at micro-level cash games. This beginning led to the meteoric rise of one of the today’s most feared poker players.
In 2009, Justin finished 3rd at the WPT Bellagio Cup V good for $465,000 and then followed that up with a 2nd place finish in the same event the following year. He has also won the WPT-London High Roller good for over $400k and has over 20 WSOP cashes including numerous final tables. His lifetime live tournament winnings are in excess of $2,000,000
However, what makes Boosted so dangerous is his unmatched skill and experience in cash games. Justin can be consistently found multi-tabling the $2000/$4000 limits in shorthanded mixed games and at the $3000/$6000 levels around LA and Vegas. Justin has played high stakes cash games around the world and is himself considered one of the best live action players on the planet.
Justin Smith is a one-of-a-kind talent with superstar potential and his career thus far speaks for itself. However, what make him so unique is his work ethic and his high personal character. Justin believes in putting 100% effort into anything he does, whether it’s playing poker, working on new business opportunities or spending time with his family, Justin understands the importance of being successful.
