Schneider joins with PokerStars.com

Team PokerStars Online has added young German sit-and-go specialist to its ranks only two months after recruiting Mickey ‘mement_mori’ Petersen.

Tuesday 29th November 2011



A young online poker player who began playing only two years ago in small stakes sit-and-go has been unveiled as the latest member of the Team PokerStars Online squad of sponsored professional players. German sit-and-go specialist Bjorn ‘Bjoerni89’ Schneider has been recruited as the 26th member of Team PokerStars Online only two months after Danish professional Mickey ‘mement_mori’ Petersen agreed to be sponsored by the Isle of Man-licensed site. The 22-year-old has progressed from micro stakes to $5,000 heads up contests and has even gone 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.”
