One of the two German players remaining in the field (the other being high-stakes superstar Fedor Holz) Tobias Hausen returns as the fourth largest stack.
Hailing from Ockfen, in western Germany near the Luxembourg border, Hausen has been playing the live circuit since 2011 and has cashed in a wide range of events across the globe ranging from EPTs to WSOPs. With just over $460,000 in live tournament winnings, Hausen is a solid journeyman poker player with a variety of mixed game cashes on his resume.
Prior to making the Aussie Millions Main Event Hausen’s best result came in the 2015 WSOP $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Spilt-8 or Better where he finished eighth for a $45,661 payday.
The 2017 Aussie Millions Main Event marks the pinnacle of Hausen’s poker playing career to date, and with the seven remaining players all guaranteed at least AUD$210,000 ($158,645 USD), this will be the German player’s best result so far regardless of where he finishes.
