Germans enjoy productive start to 2016 with victories

German compatriots Ole Schemion and Fabian Quoss have certainly enjoyed a fruitful start to the year, as the rivals in the world of poker have recently both won big in recent weeks.

The end of April saw the 2016 Poker Stars and Monte Carlo Casino grand final, where all eyes were on the first prize of a staggering 1.75 million Euros. With Schemion finding himself in the final two competitors alongside Italian Mustapha Kanit, both men found themselves on top at different stages of the contest. However, with a seven on the river for Kanit was not enough, and Schemion claimed victory, in the process pocketing the huge jackpot prize. As for Kanit, he will not be too displeased with his days work, having already won 10,000, 25,000 and 50,000 Euro high roller events on the European Tour.

Just a few days later, Schemion was back in action with his countryman Quoss. After a gruelling twelve hour event, it was the German duo who found themselves battling it out for glory. However, the duo eventually agreed upon a resolution to split to winnings and leave 50,000 Euros on the table. As a result, despite finishing in the runner up position, it was Schemion who took home the biggest earnings, continuing his hot streak. It was then left to Quoss to hoist aloft the trophy and take home just under 850,000 Euros.
