Ole Schemion notched another win in the opening €10,300 Single re-entry event at PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo. Schemion is one the quickest in history to eclipse the $10 million mark in earnings and his 14th tournament win doesn’t land in his top ten cashes.
Schemion earned $298,298 for the win but more importantly returned to a major final table for the sixth time over the last six months with two victories overall. He’ll need to keep that pace to match his breakout years of 2013-14 as it’s also his first cash of 2017.
Schemion was the German measuring stick of success after exploding into the high stakes tournament scene. He’s second on German’s all-time money list to fellow prodigy Fedor Holz who has $21 million in earnings. One would need to break the $10 million-mark to even land in the top five spots.
His win in Monte Carlo lands at his 11th largest cash and he has a total of 22 cashes of six-figures or more with four cashes of a million dollars or more.
The event drew 52 unique players for 81 total entries that juiced the prize pool to $1.15 million. Schemion passed on interview requests following his win as he directly late registered into the €100,000 Super High Roller.
