Biography

Christoph Vogelsang is a German professional poker player who hails from Sassenberg, Munster, but who resides in London, United Kingdom.

Vogelsang began his online poker career in 2010, making several $10 deposits. The talented, analytical German built a substantial bankroll within only a few weeks and found himself playing $25/$50 against some of poker's best players. Vogelsang was known as "Tight-Man1" on the now-defunct Full Tilt Poker but now mostly grinds online at PokerStars, where he is known as "26071985," which is Vogelsang's birthdate.

Vogelsang had built a glowing reputation online before he stepped into the live poker tournament world. His first recorded cash on his Hendon Mob profile came in October 2013 when he finished third in the £50,000 Super High Roller at EPT London, a result that netted Vogelsang £383,200 ($621,321). Less than a year later, Vogelsang finished third in the $1,000,000 The Big One for One Drop at the 2014 World Series of Poker (WSOP) and walked away with $4,480,001 for his efforts.

A slew of stellar results followed before Vogelsang won his first major live event. He triumphed in the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl in 2017 and scooped the $6,000,000 top prize, which is still his largest-ever haul.

By September 2022, Vogelsang has enjoyed a seven-figure score on seven occasions.

Vogelsang is known for his analytical style of play, one where he often ponders over decisions for much longer than a typical time. This often irks his opponents who do not take kindly to his recessive tanking. Vogelsang's slow pace ignited a debate at the 2022 World Series of Poker when he finished second to Dan Smith in the $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em Heads-Up Championship. Vogelsang regularly took several minutes over his decisions, leading to Scott Seiver accusing Vogelsang of angleshooting.
