Ole Schemion is the reigning EPT Player of the Year and an all-round poker sensation. Born in Berlin, but now living in Vienna, Schemion is 22 years old yet has become a fixture in the biggest games in Europe, amassing live tournament winning of close to $8 million since 2011.
Before that, he was an online sensation and, as “wizowizo” on PokerStars, has been destroying the toughest MTT fields since pretty much the moment he picked up a mouse.
He has 11 outright tournament victories, including one on the Partouche Poker Tour, an Aria Super High Roller, the Master Classics in Amsterdam, an EPT High Roller, and three side events here in 2013. But he has not yet won an EPT Main Event despite a ninth and a fifth place finish in Barcelona and Prague, respectively.
