Shane "Shaniac" Schleger Hopes For Brighter 2012

Shane "Shaniac" Schleger Hopes For Brighter 2012Shane “Shaniac” Schleger is a 34 year-old US poker pro who became a member of PokerStars Team Online in February this year.
The prodigious talent can also boast over $1,150,000 in live tournament earnings, including two WSOP final tables and a WPT final Table to his credit. However, it is online where the tournament grinder has really made his mark, notching up an incredible $2,616,760 in winnings playing under the screen name “Shaniac.”
The SuperNova player joined PokerStars Team Online after beating a field of 4,500 other applicants, and only days after winning the PokerStars Sunday $100 rebuy for $76,091; the biggest score of his career. The same month, Schleger then went on to win the same $100 rebuy for $32,067.
Nevertheless, despite an impressive start to 2011, Shane “Shaniac” Schleger confesses to not feeling sentimental towards a “chaotic” year, and states:
“And it feels like 2011 kicked my ass. It was a humbling year, and I am just looking forward to moving on.”
A large part of the problem was Black Friday, which took away a big part of his livelihood and left him felling “directionless and overwhelmed.” He  then felt compelled to move to Canada, where he stayed just three weeks before relocating to his present base in  Mexico.
One of Schleger’s biggest regrets is that he waited four months before deciding to relocate, and commented:
“I am just a bit disappointed that it took me several months of listlessly moping around, dwelling in the sense of crisis, before I could finally motivate to improve my situation.”
Despite his current surreal experience of living in Mexico, Shane “Shaniac” Schleger says he is now looking forward to a less turbulent 2012, and would soon be travelling to the Bahamas to play in the PCA. Expressing a more positive expectation for the year to come, Schleger said:
“So, I am cautiously optimistic about everything, looking forward to a new year, another shot to get my poker career in focus, establish some stability for myself…I will be happy to establish a routine and see what develops.”
