Seat 6: Ole Schemion (2,835,000)
Ole Schemion is one of Germany's brightest up-and-coming stars; what's more, he's established that reputation all before the age of 21! The youngster has already amassed more than $3 million in career live tournament earnings, including wins in the 2012 Masters Classics of Poker in Amsterdam for $368,895 and the 2012 Partouche Poker Tour Main Event for $1,474,671. He has also won side events at EPT Berlin in both 2011 ($77,138) and 2012 ($90,075).
Schemion won a huge pot on Day 2 toward the start of the day when he woke up with pocket kings against Daniel Alaei's ace-king. From there, Schemion continued his dominance by consistently winning both small pots and big pots alike. Our Live Reporting team caught a particularly interesting hand involving Schemion and Steve O'Dwyer where Schemion three-barreled into O'Dwyer and showed one of his hole cards after a fold on the river. What Schemion held is still a mystery!
Schemion begins the final table with a big chip lead and barring a reversal of luck, he's primed to not the second-biggest score of his career. All he has to do is finish third or better and he'll do it.
