This is the final installment in our series on the domination of German tournament poker players: In Part 1 we looked at the history of German poker and the rise to prominence of German’s in tournament poker; in Part 2 of the series I listed five of the top talents in German tournament poker; and now in Part 3 I will continue my list showcasing four more great young German poker players.
Ole Schemion is perhaps the most unheralded player on my list, which is understandable when you are competing for headlines against the likes of Rettenmaier, Reinkemeier, and Phillip Gruissem, but Schemion’s resume is growing as fast as anyone’s in poker over the past six months or so, beginning with his Partouche Poker Tour Main Event victory last September. Schemion followed up his first major victory with a win at the Masters Classic of Poker in Amsterdam in November of 2012, then finished 4th in the $25k High-Roller event at the 2013 PCA, and most recently won the $5k Main Event at the Lebanese Poker Championship this month. Not a bad six month run.
Dominik Nitshce could very well be the best of the bunch when it comes to German poker players. The youngster has been around the poker tournament scene since 2009, but wasn’t really a known commodity until his 2012 WSOP win in a $1k NLHE event. Since then he has added a WPT title to his trophy case and now has over $2.3 million in career tournament earnings.
Nitsche is also part of the talented young cadre of young tournament players who play mainly EPT and European events. Nitsche’s poker circle includes names like Rupert Elder, Liv Boeree, and Melanie Weisner to name just a few,
Spindler is another German player who gets overshadowed by his more charismatic and high-rolling peers, but you’d be hard pressed to find a better poker resume. Spindler has two seven-figure scores in his career, including an EPT title, and nearly $3.8 million in career tournament earnings. Spindler is off to a good start in 2013, with two six-figure cashes, including a 6th place showing in the WSOPAPAC Main Event.
Phillip Gruissem is best known for his high-stakes cash game skills, but the talented player has also had quite a bit of success in high-stakes tournaments as well. Despite playing a fairly limited tournament schedule consisting of mainly Main Events and High-Roller tournaments, Gruissem has won nearly 45 million in his tournament career, good for 3rd on the German all-time list.
