PokerStars USA Sunset Series Halfway Update: Two Titles for "OJ Limpsinnnn" 101

In the merged market of New Jersey and Michigan, “Zlajamiest” was the lucky winner of the July 23 $5 buy-in $550 Summer Series Package, so they will be headed to Philadelphia next month.

Meanwhile, it was a good couple of days for "OJ Limpsinnnn" who laid claim to a pair of titles early. First, they topped a field of 383 entries to win Event #1: $10 NLHE [PLE/PLO Mix - PLO Warmup], $1K Gtd for $631.88, and then the following day bested 153 runners to win Sunset Series 4: $30 PLO [PLO 4-Max], $2K Gtd for $850.51.

More recently on Wednesday night, Dan "Dr Dad 1819" Schill navigated a 220-entry field to win Sunset Series 19: $20 NLHE [Hyper-Turbo, Progressive KO, Zoom PKO], $3K Gtd for $936.12. A biomedical researcher at the University of Michigan, Schill studies bipolar disorder as his day job. When he’s not busy putting his doctorate in cell and developmental biology to use, the 32-year-old father can often be found streaming his online poker play on Twitch.

As for his screen name, 1819 is a combination of two years – 2018 when he received his Ph.D. and 2019 when his son was born.

It’s not the first time he’s found success on PokerStars USA. In April 2022, he won the SCOOP Event #32-M: $50 NLH for $1,928, and in May 2022 finished second in a $250 PokerStars High Roller for $4,324.

“Winning my first series event on PokerStars Michigan during SCOOP this year really stands out to me,” Schill told US Poker at the time. “I do a majority of my volume on PokerStars, so it was awesome to get a series win there and get in a Tweet from the official PokerStars USA account.”
