Seat 6: Ole "wizowizo" Schemion (25) - Berlin, Germany (Resides in Vienna)
While Ole Schemion hasn't made it to the exclusive EPT Main Event Champions' club yet, he's arguably one of the most talented players the tour has ever seen. He's still only 25 years old but has already become an EPT legend. Schemion burst onto the live scene as an 18-year-old wunderkind. He arrived at the Spielbank Berlin to play the EPT in his home city and his first notch was, unsurprisingly, a win. Schemion topped the €1k Event for €54,200 to kick off his groundbreaking career.
One of the true wizards of the game, Schemion has established himself in the nosebleeds events and has been constantly showing his prowess in the large fields as well. He's already knocked twice on the door in the EPT Main Event but he couldn't close it out when he finished fifth at EPT10 Prague and sixth here in Monaco back in 2015.
Now he has another attempt, and it will be again in the Salle des Etoiles tournament room where he's been exceptionally successful over the years. Schemion scooped three side event trophies at EPT9 Grand Final before conquering the high stakes scene, claiming the €100k and €50k Super High Roller titles, among other hefty cashes.
In all, he's cashed in 17 tournaments here (including five wins) for a jaw-dropping €4,736,856. With another final table ahead of him, Schemion needs a top-three finish to cross €5 million in total earnings from PokerStars live events held in the ministate. If he's ever due to lift the EPT Main Event trophy, no place in the world would fit the narrative better than Monaco.
