TOM CASHES!

by , Jun 27, 2009 | 6:03 am

After a valiant 0-for-18 start, with only one Day 2 in the mix, everybody’s favorite @DonkeyBomber has finally made the money — winning his first-round table in the $1,500 Limit Hold’em Shootout, an event he finished 5th in back in 2006.

Yep, it’s a guaranteed $4,350 payday ($2,850 net). We know he’s got a long way to go against a bunch of other tough pros to stop the bankroll-bleeding … but c’mon, golf-clap … baby steps. Now all he needs is a third-place finish (or maybe second) to get him pretty close to even for 2009 WSOP tourneys.

David Williams
David Plastik
Juha Helppi
Humberto Brenes
John-Robert Bellande
Brock Parker
Nick Binger
Diego Cordovez
Greg Mueller
Ray Henson

… and a lot of others that have 2-4 WSOP cashes under their belts.

Here’s Tom’s 2nd Round table:

Tom Schneider – 45000
Juha Helppi – 45000
Mike Thorpe – 45000
Daniel Kraus – 45000
Michael Byrne – 45000
Brock Parker – 45000
Greg ‘FBT’ Mueller – 45000
Mike Beasley – 45000

If you tally up Hendon Mob Results and WSOP hardware for all the players still left (64 out of 572), this table represents the 1st most difficult out of 8. Must-win.
