PokerStars.com signs up Schneider

German sit-and-go specialist has become the latest member of the Team PokerStars Online squad of sponsored professional players.

Monday 28th November 2011



PokerStars.com has recruited German sit-and-go specialist Bjorn ‘Bjoerni89’ Schneider as the latest member of its Team PokerStars Online squad of sponsored professional players. The Gottingen native started his online poker career just over two years ago playing five-dollar nine-man sit-and-go competitions and has become the 26th member of its Team PokerStars Online squad following September’s signing of Danish professional Mickey ‘mement_mori’ Petersen. Soon after starting his poker journey, the now 22-year-old had progressed to games of six-max sit-and-go while he began playing in $100 heads-up contests earlier this year before moving up to $5,000 tournaments and even going head-to-head with Team PokerStars Pro Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom. “Schneider is not just a sit-and-go specialist as he's also found some success in multi-table tournaments including a fourth-place finish in the Sunday Warm-Up for more than $50,000,” read a statement from PokerStars.com. “And the worrying part for everyone else is that he's constantly looking to fix leaks in his game and add a major title to his name in 2012 . “You'd think all that time at the virtual felt would leave little room for anything else but Schneider, like other great players such as [Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier], enjoys playing video games like World of Warcraft and Starcraft. Oh, and he's also studying history and philosophy.”
