Poker pro Arnold Spee, looking a bit like TJ Cookier sans glasses above, is today’s player spotlight.

Throughout the 2008 WSOP Main Event, we’re introducing you to poker players you may not know already who are doing well, or you may have forgotten, or for some reason caught our photographers eyes. Today we’re featuring Arnold Spee, who’s currently stacked at about what he started with on Day 1 so he’s probably the “All In and a Call” we just heard on the tournament floor. Good look Arnie.

From Agoura Hills, Calif., Spee bursted onto the poker scene back in March 2005 when he won the WPT World Poker Challenge in Reno, besting a final table that included Phil Ivey and Blair Rodman.

Spee is really tall.

    Yeah, I would like to see Spee do well this year. In the 2005 WPT event, Blair Rodman went all in against Spee at the final table. Spee ended up winning with 2 pair. Two 3′s and Two 4′s.
