Biography

Ole Schemion is a German poker player. He has won both World Poker Tour and World Series of Poker titles in a career during which he has amassed over $16 million in earnings.

Schemion is a former Global Poker Index #1, having held the title for 18 weeks straight between December 2014 and April 2015.

Poker Achievements

Schemion shot to prominence in late 2012 after winning the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event for over €1.1 million. He followed that up with victory in the 2012 Master Classics of Poker Main Event.

His success continued into 2013, with three side event wins at EPT Monte Carlo, another final table in the Master Classics of Poker and a final-table appearance at the EPT Prague Main Event.

Schemion was tipped for success at 2014 WSOP after winning the EPT San Remo €10,300 High Roller and cashing in the the EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller, but he didn't cash at that year's WSOP. He did however win an Aria $100k Super High Roller for over $1 million.

Other standout performances from Schemion include a second-place finish in the 2015 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge, and a final table in the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event in 2015.

He followed that up with victory in the 2016 EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller, narrowly missing out on the High Roller title having to settle for second place.

Monte Carlo has continually been a place where Schemion has enjoyed success including at the 2017 PokerStars Championship. That year also saw him record his first WSOP cash in the Monster Stack.

His 2018 begun with more success, winning the World Poker Tour European Championship on home soil.

Schemion would make the final table of the EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller yet again, before making his second EPT final table, finishing eighth. In 2019, Schemion enjoyed more success. He won the $1,100 PCA National as well as the Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions, before cashin gin the WSOP Europe Diamond High Roller and final-tabling the Master Classics of Poker Main Event again.

When live poker resumed in 2021, Schemion finally grabbed his first WSOP bracelet in Event #79: $1,979 No Limit Hold'em - Poker Hall of Fame Bounty for $172,499.

“It’s not too often in live tournaments that you come in first place,” said Schemion after his win. “It’s what we all try to do but it feels very good to run through a good field and win one.”

Later that year, Schemion narrowly missed out on a second bracelet after a runner-up finishing Event 12: €2,000 8-Game Mix at the 2021 WSOP Europe.

Online Poker Achievements

Away from the live felt, Schemion has amassed four SCOOP titles over the course of his career, with the first two in 2018 along with his first WCOOP title.

His second two SCOOP titles came in 2020.
