Our great player was suffering from a heart condition at birth and experienced a heart attack in his 20s. It’s not revealed whether this was a factor in his unexpected death. Poker pro player, Todd Witteles, who was friends with Schmidt on Facebook, declared he last made a post on November 30.

“His last post was November 30th at 11:35 pm PST. None of his posts indicate any kind of health issue, and in fact, he had just recently put up the family Christmas tree on the 27th,” Witteles wrote announcing Schmidt’s passing on his Poker Fraud Alert forum. “His passing is not yet confirmed, and it’s possible that Kevin has the wrong information. However, I think it is likely true. I hope it’s not.”
