I'm a great fan of the Transformers leader (Optimusprime).
Way back in medical school, "optimus" is my fraternity codename, adding to the name is my lottery lucky winning number in 4digit game

The county where I live is nicknamed the 'Royal' county.

The 'Raise' part is because one of the first things I learnt was not to limp and that raising was better, plus it begins with an 'R' so goes with the 'Royal' bit.

And 85 was how old my grandmother was before she passed away, I created my PokerStars account 2 months after she left us and it was another little way to remember her by.

That's the story behind my nick'

Something from the old days of IRC, I just picked something at random. Fish in Swedish is "fisk", and swedes from Gothenburg pronounce it "fesk" for some reason. "Prins" means prince. So, the it means "fish prince" which is very convenient sicne I wasn't aware of the fish/shark terminology when I opened my account, and now the fish bring money to their prince.

That's 15 words right? I'm not very good at math.

I'm Arty and I smoke. A lot. The PS just stands for Pokerstars. Boring, but true. If I ever join Full Tilt, I'll come up with a radical new screenname, possibly "Sitting out", as I often do that when I'm smoking.
