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.

“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.
