Erica Schoenberg isthe professional blackjack and poker player that is currently making a name for herself with her beauty and skills by poker tables worldwide.
Erica Schoenberg carries the nick names Blackjack and Poker Babe. She is a professional Blackjack and Poker player with a past as a model which might have led to these titles. As a child Schoenberg would wager with her family members for pocket money and as a teenager she discovered that she had a natural inclination for numbers.
Not even 30 years old she has gained a lot of experience of gambling. She was trained in Blackjack by a member of the MIT Blackjack Team and she has competed in the World Series of Blackjack. Before her gambling career her competitive personality had its outlet through volleyball which is something she still enjoys to engage in. Perhaps this helped her reach the high level of gambling that she has acquired.
When she left college, Schoenberg worked as a personal trainer and she started to make some income as a blackjack player. She had played many different card games growing up but at this point blackjack had developed into her passion. Schoenberg appeared on the Game Show Network's World Series of Blackjack and she made a 2nd place in her episode. It was clear that her training had been well worth the effort. Still, Schoenberg wasn't to linger much longer in the world of Blackjack as she was leaning more and more towards poker.
Switching to poker was a very clever choice. Today Schoenberg is active as a professional poker player. Her greatest achievement so far when it comes to money must be placing 3rd in 38th Annual World Series of Poker Event #38 – WSOP No Limit Hold'em. This brought her a prize sum of $261,646. Shortly after this event she placed 18th in the Bellagio Cup III WPT No Limit Hold'em Championship Bellagio Cup which earned her $41,310. In the Mandalay Bay Poker Championships / WPT Event Season 6 Event #5 – No Limit Hold'em she placed number 1. This event isn't her personal record of prize money but it brought her the nice sum of $105,875.
Schoenberg has utilized her looks and participated in the Carmen Electra Strip Poker DVD. This DVD is mostly about the strip but it has been reported to have some good game pointers. It has been said that her looks has distracted many of her opponents but this is not the only reason that she is doing so well. It is clear that she is a skilled player and as she continues to participate in world wide events she most likely will add to her collected total winnings of more than $500,000.
Erica Schoenberg is tied to, just like her fiancé, Full Tilt Poker. When they are not busy playing they enjoy spending time together and with Schoenberg's two dogs. Schoenberg says that she sees her gambling as a regular job and she enjoys sharing this with her boyfriend. They were actually seated at the same table in the World Series of Poker but this competition has only enhanced their gaming and not created any internal conflicts.
