InterPoker Signs Poker Prodigy Scott Fischman
13 May 2006
Scott Fischmean is the youngest poker player to ever to wear two back to back World Series of Poker Bracelets and now Scott has joined the InterPoker.com Extreme Team
Scott worked as a dealer at the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas in his early twenties, however when diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2002, he decided to try playing rather than dealing. His first tourney was in January of 2004 at The Grand American Poker Classic in Tunica, MS, placing an impressive 4th. Since that time, he’s played his way to nine final tables, including those at the Orleans Open, the Mirage Poker Showdown and the coveted World Series of Poker Events, where he dramatically defeated poker giants Joe Awada in the No-Limit Hold ‘em competition, and John Cover in a record-breaking H.O.R.S.E. victory. He then won the World Poker Tour Young Guns of Poker invitational tournament at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino which earned him a seat in the 2005 WPT Championship. In 2005, Scott finished 2nd in the No Limit Hold ‘em event, beating out 2305 competitors to nearly recapture his title.
Scott is quoted as saying “I’ve been impressed with InterPoker from the start, and I look forward to being a part of one of the most respected online poker rooms in the world. With InterPoker, it is apparent that they truly care about providing players with a safe, exciting and, above all, genuine poker experience on the web, and I am extremely pleased to be associated with them.”
Scott is also involved in promoting his new instructional poker book this summer and has plans to break the world record for longest continuous game of poker later this year. Good Luck Scott!
