Ole Schemion has won his second trophy here at the EPT Grand Final. We wrote about the rise and rise of Ole Schemion when he won event #16. All we can say is, ‘We told you so.’
And some handy info from EPT Media Coordinator Mad Harper: “This is his fifth tournament win in the last seven months – and his second in a week. Last Friday he beat a 33-strong field to take down the €5k PLO event. Now he’s added another €11,700 to his Monaco haul. There were 30 entries creating a €29,100 prize pool.
In September, Schemion won the Partouche final for €1,172,850, in November the Master Classics for €286,200 and the Lebanese Poker Tour only a month ago for $201,206. He won the €1k NL side events in Berlin two years running and bubbled the EPT Barcelona final table in August, finishing ninth for €55,100.”
