Much has been made over the possible identity of "Pachabel" on Full Tilt Poker. This person is almost definitely a well-known name pro, as they play the highest stakes on Full Tilt Poker, including the big H.O.R.S.E. game and the highest stakes No Limit Hold'em games.
"Pachabel" seems to want everyone to think that he is in fact, 2006 World Series of Poker champion Jamie Gold. In fact, he seems to go far out of his way to try and convince other people that he is in fact Jamie Gold. He has had lengthy conversations online with the likes of players such as Todd Brunson, trying to convince him of the fact that he is Jamie Gold. However, after much questioning, Brunson didn't seem to be convinced that it was Jamie Gold, and in fact, posted online on 2+2, stating that it wasn't Jamie Gold.
So the two questions are: why would someone pretend to be Jamie Gold, and if "pachabel" isn't Jamie Gold, then who is it?
The first question could likely be answered with: Jamie Gold is seen by most as a fish, especially after his High Stakes Poker appearance. Convincing other high-limit players that he is in fact Jamie Gold might allow a player to receive more action, and get paid off for his big hands a bit more.
So the second question would be: who is "pachabel" then? My sources have told me that this player is in fact Chad Brown.
