3rd Place for Julie

by , Jul 1, 2009 | 8:56 pm

Big congrats for the deepest run of any Team Pokerati player in 2009, who just finished 3rd in the $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw. From WSOP.com:

Julie Schneider played a remarkably clean tournament right from the start of play on Day 1. She quickly proved to her male competitors that she was more than just a pretty face at the table, picking off one opponent after another with her well-timed bets (and a few favorable draws). Her deep run comes to an end in third place, good for $66,285 and a big hug from husband Tom

Though we still need to run the calculations and wait for the main event to finalize, as of now, it looks like Mrs. @DonkeyBomber will win the Team Pokerati Net Results Challenge — and though not quite enough for Tom to quit his job and become a stay-at-home dad, it should be enough to keep the Schneiders out of indentured servitude. (Phew!)

What? You didn’t know the Team Pokerati Net Results Challenge existed? Either did we, but hey we swear it might be disastrous cool … tallying up not just winnings, but winnings-minus-buy-ins to see who’s really tearing it up at the WSOP.

Unofficial standings in that department:

1. Julie Schneider
2. Pat Poels
3. Gregg Merkow
4. Cliff Fisher
5. John Harris
6. Robert Goldfarb
7. Shoegal
8. Karridy Askenasy
9. Whit Blanton
10. Tom Schneider

    Congrats to Julie. I watched her event a bit and she played remarkably. I’m thinking about ditching, you Dan, and asking Julie to play Dream Team Poker with me.

    Im sure Julie would consider an offer to play in the WSOP 10k main event if anyone was interested…not sure, but just saying…

    5th huh… Ship it!

    Obviously 5th isn’t where I want to be, but I’ll let everyone off the hook until next year. Also, I beat Tom… that’s braggable, right? :)

    Also, first time having two Pokerati players at the same table in a WSOP event? Or no?
