Recognized from an early age as a young prodigy, Pobelter has been in the competitive scene since 2011. Some of his early teams include Meat Playground, unRestricted and most notably Curse Gaming/Team Curse. Pobelter's first major exposure in the NA LCS was while he was the Mid Laner for Evil Geniuses. The team wasn't able to achieve much success and Pobelter joined Winterfox next. Although his time on that team was even worse as they achieved similar results but in a more chaotic environment. The first major success Pobelter found was when he joined Counter Logic Gaming in 2015.
After finding stability with the team and with his own play, Pobelter finally won his first NA LCS championship in the Summer of 2015. Although following a lackluster Worlds performance from CLG, he was released from the team and joined Immortals. Under the IMT banner he wasn't able to win a split but he did achieve domestic recognition for his consistency. In 2018 he would join Team Liquid where he won his second championship in the Spring Split. With a good amount of success in NA, Pobelter aims for international glory as his next major goal.
Pobelter had previously played for Curse Gaming as their top laner, however, he left due to his inability to move into the team's gaming house and began playing for for Meat Playground as their AP carry. He would leave MP to join Curse's sibling team, Curse Academy as their mid laner since too young to join the LCS, he would be active in the growing Challenger scene.
In October 2013, it would be announced that Pobelter would rejoin Curse after their roster changes to become their new mid laner.After 6 days, Pobelter was released from Team Curse due to his attending school. After he was released, he played briefly for ggLA in the mid lane for Challenger Leagues such as the NACL.
When Evil Geniuses moved from Europe to North America with Snoopeh, Yellowpete, and Krepo, Pobelter was brought in to fill their midlane position, while InnoX became their toplaner. Inheriting Velocity eSports's spot in the 2014 Spring Promotion Tournament, EG played against Determined Gaming and swept the series 3-0, qualifying for the LCS Spring Split.
Evil Geniuses placed seventh at the end of the Spring Split, with an overall 8-20 record, one game ahead of XDG; this record sent them directly to the Summer Promotion Tournament, without participating in the playoffs. In the Promotion Tournament, they were matched against Challenger team Cloud 9 Tempest, whom they defeated 3-1 and so qualified once again for the Summer Split.
In the summer split, Evil Geniuses barely finished the regular season in seventh place, finishing with one win more than compLexity, with an 11-17 record after finishing the split with a 4-0 final week. This meant EG would play in the Spring Promotion, facing Team Coast, who were playing with last-minute Korean players Miracle and Ringer in the solo lanes. EG won 3-0 and took their a spot in the 2015 LCS Spring Split.
Pobelter re-signed with Evil Geniuses, which then rebranded as Winterfox. He also won the Best Zed NA Tournament, defeating huhi 3-1 in the finals. Due to issues with Avalon and Helios's visas in the first week and multiple bottom lane substitutions throughout the split, Pobelter was the only member of Winterfox to play every game with the team in the same position. They finished in eighth place with a 7-11 record, forced into relegations. Given the choice between playing against Team Dragon Knights and Team Fusion, Winterfox chose the former, despite their higher placement in the Challenger playoffs. Due to starting mid laner Kyle leaving the team prior to the tournament, TDK started Alex Ich in mid lane, and Winterfox lost the series 1-3 and sending them to the Challenger series. Pobelter left the team and joined Counter Logic Gaming along with HuHi in time for the summer split. Despite this announcement, Pobelter would play every game for CLG in the summer split.
Echoing their spring split performance, CLG started the summer split strong, in first place at the end of each of the first four weeks and then lost four games in a row to finish tied for fifth after week six. This time, however, they rebounded and ended the season in second, behind Team Liquid and with a 13-5 record. They received a bye in the first round of the playoffs and then swept both Team Impulse and Team SoloMid 3-0, to win their first LAN event since MLG Raleigh in 2011 nearly four years prior and receive North America's top seed to Worlds. Despite having a relatively easy group draw with KOO Tigers, Flash Wolves, and paiN Gaming, CLG didn't advance from their Worlds group, ending with a 2-4 record including a loss to paiN.
Despite the fact that HuHi hadn't gotten to play a single game live with the team during the 2015 season, in October CLG announced that he would replace Pobelter for the 2016 season as starting mid laner. Pobelter joined the new LCS team Immortals instead, with a roster including himself, Huni and Reignover from Fnatic, WildTurtle from TSM, and Adrian from Team Impulse.
Expected to be a top team in the LCS, Immortals initially exceeded all expectations as they went undefeated for the first six weeks of the season before losing one game to reigning champions Counter Logic Gaming in week 7. They won the rest of their regular season games, but as the season progressed further they looked weaker and weaker as a team, and even seemed to falter against the last-place Team Dignitas, needing to come back against them to pull out a win. With a top seed clinched into the playoffs, Immortals were guaranteed to face the lowest-seed team that won in the quarterfinals. That team ended up being Team Solomid, who were on a strong upswing after a sixth-place regular season finish. With questionable drafts including a Lucian top for Huni in game 1, Urgot mid for Pobelter in game 2, and three games of Karma support for Adrian as well as not a single contest of the strongly-in-meta Ekko, Immortals lost 3-0 to TSM. They came back the next week to beat Team Liquid and finish in third place overall.
