Ole "wizowizo" Schemion Dominates SCOOP PLO High Roller for $283,261
Ole "wizowizo" Schemion navigated through a field 126 entrants (88 entries + 38 reentries) and dominated a star-studded final table to win the SCOOP-32-H: $10,300 PLO [6-Max, High Roller], $1,000,000 Gtd at PokerStars for $283,261.
Schemion, hailing from Germany and registered at PokerStars in Austria, has been dominating both the online and live poker felts for years. While the true nature of his online domination is undocumented with the German blocking access to external online tournament databases, he has won or appeared at final tables at many major online tournaments in the past.
His live play is documented by The Hendon Mob and includes $14.6 million in tournament cashes during his poker career including four separate seven-figure results.

According to the PokerStars Blog, the second and final day of the tournament began with 14 players each guaranteed the minimum cash of $26,007. Finland's Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen began the day in the lead with Ben "Ben86" Tollerene not too far behind.
Tollerene was unable to parlay his big chip stack into an appearance at the final table after bowing out in ninth place for $44,214.
During eight-handed play, Kyllönen lost the lead for the first time of the day. Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion was then eliminated in eighth place and the seven-max final table was set with Jorryt "TheCleaner11" van Hoof in the lead followed by David "danfiu" Mezei and Schemion.
Kyllönen, who entered the final table as the second-shortest stack, was eliminated by "FLATC@T" in seventh place for $57,649 after he got it in with top pair and was unable to overcome the pocket aces held by his opponent.
Joao "IneedMassari" Simao, who was just a SCOOP win shy of a triple COOP, will have to wait for another tournament to attempt this accomplishment after he was eliminated by Schemion in sixth place for $75,166.
The hand also helped Schemion increase the chip lead he obtained during six-handed play and he continued to apply pressure to single-handedly eliminate Van Hoof (fifth - $98,006), Mezei ($127,787), and Bengt "pkrbt" Sonnert (third - $166,617).
Schemion entered heads-up play with an almost 7-1 chip advantage against "FLATC@T". The heads-up battle lasted just two hands with "FLATC@T" collecting a healthy runner-up prize of $217,247.
Schemion not only eliminated the final five players at the final table but also won 18 of the final 20 hands to win the SCOOP event in a dominating fashion.
