Tom Schneider (born December 24, 1959 in Indianapolis, Indiana) is a professional poker player from Phoenix, Arizona. Schneider was a certified public accountant and former president and chief financial officer for three Arizona companies before beginning his poker career in 2002. He is the author of the book Oops! I Won Too Much Money: Winning Wisdom from the Boardroom to the Poker Table which provides lessons for both poker and business. Tom is also the co-host of the popular poker podcast, Beyond The Table, along with Karridy Askenasy and Dan Michalski, creator and head blogger at Pokerati, where Tom is a contributing columnist.[1]

At the 2007 World Series of Poker Schneider won his first two WSOP bracelets, one in Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better/Seven-Card Stud Hi/Lo and the second in Seven-Card Stud Hi/Lo. He also made the final table of the $2,500 H.O.R.S.E. event, finishing in fourth place. These finishes earned him the 2007 WSOP Player of the Year award.[2]

On September 16, 2008, Schneider won the event #24 of the World Championship of Online Poker, a $530 buyin No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw tournament. Schneider, who uses the name 'luvgamble' on PokerStars, bested a field of 308 to win the $42,000 first prize.[3]

Schneider won his third bracelet in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. event at the 2013 World Series of Poker, defeating Owais Ahmed heads-up to win $259,960. He then won his fourth bracelet in the $5,000 H.O.R.S.E. event defeating Benjamin Scholl. With that win, he became the first person in WSOP history to win multiple mixed game bracelets in the same WSOP.

As of 2011, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,600,000.[4] His 18 cashes at the WSOP account for $851,597 of those winnings.[5]
