Paul Strohm Passes Away After Succumbing To Cancer


Mid-stakes poker player Paul Strohm passed away yesterday. Strohm’s sons Scott, Nick, and Brian took to Facebook to share the unfortunate news. In a social media post, they added, “We are devastated to have to let you know that last Thursday Paul passed away peacefully in his sleep with us by his side. He had been privately battling cancer and was focused on living his best life. I think we can all agree he succeeded.” 

He further insisted his family/friends share pictures or videos that they have of the player. They also heartfully thanked everyone for being a part of his life. Strohm was one of the well-known players from the RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) and was also a competitor in the Kansas City Monday Night Poker Game. Strohm had $117,322 in lifetime career earnings. His highest career earning was $26,058 which he cashed after finishing 10th in the RGPS Council Bluffs Main Event. Strohm made it big two other events were the 2019 World Series of Poker Circuit Ameristar St. Charles $1,700 Main Event and the 2020 World Poker Tour Fallsview.

RGPS President Tana Karn mentioned that, “I was extremely lucky to get to see Paul one last time at Horseshoe Iowa for his last tour stop back in November. We chatted and also spoke about his cancer diagnosis. As devastating as the news was you could tell that he wasn’t going to let it bring him down. I’ve seen him take some crazy bad beats over the years and each time he would somehow manage to fall in love with the game more. He loved life and enjoying as much as he could out of every moment.”
