The 10 event Merit Middle East Poker Championship drew to a close over the weekend with Germany's Dominick Nitsche taking the $4,700 buy-in Main Event.
The 20-year-old outlasted a field of 141 runners in the northern Cypriot resort of Kyrenia to take home a first prize of $164,100. After an extremely late finish, a perhaps tired and emotional Nitsche wrote this on his Facebook wall in light of his success, “i just masturbated soooo hard i almost broke my arm....but im sooo happy... Im the new MIDDLE EAST CHAMPION!!!!!!! weeeeeee!!!! on your bikes!!!!!”. Some things are probably better left unsaid.It proved to be a great week for the youngster who also cashed in the $1,500 side event and the $1,000 heads up contest. The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st Dominik Nitsche $164,100 2nd Ivan Starostin $112,151 3rd Taner Aydin $76,591 4th Kadir Karabulut $46,502 5th Necip Ferengizbilge $31,457 6th Amir Touma $23,251 7th Ramez Haddad $17,780 8th Chadi Ojelli $12,309 9th Sergey Rybachenko $8,780 The next big event on the island is the Mediterranean Poker Cup which runs from 29th April to 19th May and is expected to generate a prize pool of $500,000.
