€5,300 Main Event

Seat 2: Stefan Schillhabel - PokerStars player (5,515,000)

Stefan Schillhabel

Stefan Schillhabel, who hails from Dusseldorf/Germany, started playing poker in 2006 with friends and is still a recreational player. The 28-year-old is currently studying for a Masters in sociology and also has a part-time job in sales.

In 2014 he qualified for EPT10 Deauville and since then has also played EPT10 Vienna, EPT100 Barcelona and Deauville for a second time last month – however this is his first EPT Main Event cash. His best result thus far came last summer when he took down a $600 Deepstack Event in Las Vegas for $21,047, meaning he's guaranteed to set a much higher mark here in the EPT Malta Main Event.
