Team Pokerati Frontrunner for Women’s WSOP Player of the Year!

by , Jul 9, 2009 | 10:51 am

Daniel Negreanu knows her as “whackjob surprise” … and though we have a feeling that might be what the Schneiders call Tom’s annual birthday present, well-informed, loyal Pokeratizens know her as “Angry Julie” (from back in the Beyond the Table days) … and as the main event nears the money bubble, she’s the frontrunner amongst the women for WSOP Player of the Year.

(Woot! Congrats, Julie!)

According to Julie, men don’t know what it’s like to have to dodge tilt at a final table on a heavy-flow day … but she didn’t let that get in the way of her finding success. With just the main event left to play — making it still anybody’s game, but statistically unlikely that anyone passes her — here’s the breakdown of the top women in the WSOP POY standings:

1. Julie Schneider – 65 pts
2. Vanessa Rousso – 60 pts
3. Millie Shiu – 60 pts
4. Annie Duke – 40 pts
5. Jennifer Harman – 37 pts

    Have no faith in a woman making the ME final table Dan?

    I’m not counting chickens before they hatch … but statistically it’s more unlikely than usual. Then mix in history …

    I am soooo retweeting dodging tilt on a heavy flow day. GG Julie! Tom was my first video Random Questions interview, maybe we can do one this weekend with you.

    Maybe a stoopid question, but Is there really a W-POY?

  5. DanM

    no, not officially.

  6. Karridy

    Then I say we campaign for it! What better time to start it up than on a year where you’ll set a record that may never be broken. Being, Husband and Wife POY’s.

  7. DanM

    you are welcome to do that, karridy. but i have a feeling that california jen will not support your endeavors.

    i agree that would be cool to have husband and wife players of the year … but a contrived award as such would be picked apart more than celebrated in a year when the top woman finisher came in 170th.

    (don’t hurt me for saying that, julie.)

  8. Tom Schneider

    Julie played in only 6 poy events. She is now officially the best 2-7 triple draw player in the hizzle…fur shizzle.

    @DanMichalski: I guess @WriterJen is against Ladies events also?
    @DonkeyBomber: It’s “Fo” shizzle. Fail. You will henceforth be known as @HonkeyBomber.

    ***You will henceforth be known as @HonkeyBomber.***

    Now that’s a cause I can get behind!
