Biography

Dominik Nitsche is a young and one of the most promising German poker players. He already has a World Series of Poker bracelet, a World Poker Tour Championship title, and the Latin American Poker Tour's Main Event trophy which puts him ahead of thousands of players struggling to make it into the poker's elite. Nische is sponsored by 888poker.

Intro

Nitsche was born in 1991 in Minden, Germany, just outside Hannover. He entered his first live tournament as soon as he became of age and instantly took the first title. It was in April 2009 in Mar del Plata, Argentina. Nitsche outplayed the field of 290 players in that event eventually taking down the Latin America Poker Tour title along with the more than $380,000 top prize. Nitsche since then has gone deep and taken down many events and has amassed nearly $14 million in live tournament cashes to go along with more than $4.4 million in online cashes.

Online Background

Like most of the poker's young guns, Nitsche started his career at the online tables. His initial success came in Full Tilt Poker's Online Poker Series where Nitsche scored back to back Super Tuesday final tables and a first-place finish in a Full Tilt $200 re-buy for $42,000. The German has piled on the cashes and according to some sources now has more than $4 million in online cashes alone.

World Series of Poker

Nitsche went to Vegas for the summer in 2012 as it was the first year that the young German could play poker in the US. The debut was an impressive one. Nitsche cashed in three WSOP events before winning his first bracelet. He bested the field of 4,620 players to win the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event and took home the $654,797 top prize. Just a few months later, he traveled to Cannes, France for the WSOP Europe where he cashed in two more No-Limit Hold'em events.

The following year, Nitsche came close to winning another WSOP bracelet when he finished third in the WSOP Europe €10,450 Main Event for €400,000 ($540,664).

Nitsche didn’t have to wait too much longer for more WSOP hardware as he went on to win two more WSOP bracelets in 2014. He first won the $10,000 WSOP National Championship for $352,800 before he went on to also win the $1,000 No Limit event for $335,659.

In 2017, Nitsche won his fourth WSOP bracelet after shipping the WSOP Europe €111,111 Big One for One Drop for €3,487,463 ($4,064,026), representing by far his biggest tournament cash to date.

World Poker Tour

As if winning a WSOP bracelet during his first trip to Las Vegas in 2012 wasn't enough, Nitsche scored another prestigious poker title that same year. In October 2012, he won the World Poker Tour Johannesburg $3,300 Main Event for just over $200,000 in prize money as well as the honor of calling himself a WPT champion. With two major poker titles already in his collection, Nitsche is just an EPT win away from the poker's “Triple Crown” and his whole life ahead of him to score that one remaining title.

European Poker Tour

Although Nitsche already has two EPT side event wins on his record, he still has to take down the Main Event. In 2011 he won the €1,000 No-Limit Hold'em tournament at the EPT Loutraki for €34,650 ($47,646) and then in 2012 he collected €35,000 ($45,191) after shipping the €900 No-Limit Hold'em event.

Nitsche has had several bigger scores outside of his victories in side events, most notably a second place finish in the 2016 EPT Dublin €10,300 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller for €139,450 ($156,916).

Other Achievements

In April 2009, Nitsche scored his first major poker title which also was his first live tournament money finish. He took down the LAPT Mar del Plata $5,000 Main Event taking home $381,030 in cash. Then in 2011 Nitsche collected two first place prizes in Cyprus. He first won the Merit Middle East Poker Championship's $4,000 Championship event in April for $164,100 and then two months later he took down the $2,500 Main Event at the Merit Summer Open for $123,366.

In July 2015, Nitsche finished runner-up in the Bellagio Cup XI $10,400 No Limit Hold’em event for $479,732. Two years later in June 2016, he had another big runner-up finish in the Aria Super High Roller 9 $50,000 No Limit Hold’em event for $629,808. In February 2018, Nitsche shipped the partypoker MILLIONS Germany €10,300 High Roller for a cool €300.000 ($374,392).
