RE: Tom Schneider Proves NL 2-7 Single-Draw/WCOOP Prowess

He outed himself.

After Dan tried to delicately give “luvgamble” kudos for winning the WCOOP Event #24 ($530 NL 2-7 Single Draw) without giving away his real name, as no one likely caught the clever “Schmonkey Schmomber” clue, Tom Schneider gave his real name when doing the winner’s interview piece for PokerStars.

In the piece written by Falstaff entitled, “Oops! I Won Another Bracelet! Tom ‘luvgamble’ Schneider Takes Down Event #24,” the Donkey Bomber discusses the key to his WCOOP success.

Schneider, who has had tremendous success in live tournaments with 2 World Series of Poker bracelets in 2007 and the WSOP Player of the Year title for that year, says “I like games that don’t have any educational material available. I believe that my advantage is that I’m able to figure out games without having to rely on written material.”

Ahhh, not reading. That’s the key! Duly noted.

Today, Schneider started out at the top of the leaderboard of the WCOOP $5200 NLHE main event. Keep up with his progress as live bloggers track all of the happenings. (Side note: If Schneider stays in long enough, I’ll likely write some witty blog entries about him during the late shift tonight, my last of the WCOOP.)

    No money for luvgamble. Karridy was gay nice enough to record his last hand for all posterity … AK lost to AK:

    Believe it or not,I thought for a long time about throwing away the AK preflop to wait for a different spot. But at least by calling I got this lame ass video on Pokerati.

    Don’t worry. There’s a whole muck of lame ass videos of you on YouTube. And they aren’t all my fault.

    Well done Tom, I was one of the live bloggers watching both the main event and the 2-7 event.

    There’s a much better hand replayer on the Stars btw. 🙂

    Nice, Drizz … if they could make the hand replayer link/embeddable — and where every hand in the history of ever was searchable — that would be so awesome/gay.
