Dominik Nitsche has added another title to his already tournament CV after taking down the WPT South Africa Main Event at the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg.
The German youngster went into the final table of six with a huge chip lead and made short work of the final table of six. The only person to put up any resistance to the 22-year-old was Briton Jerome Bradpiece. The BlackBeltPoker.com pro started the day fourth in the chip counts but an early double up put him right back in contention. The two European pros seemed destined to battle it out for the title and so it proved with Nitsche starting with a slight lead. The German took control after winning a huge pot with AK over Bradpiece’s AJ and sealed the deal soon after when his A4 held against the Brit’s 10-J. It wasn’t all bad news for Bradpiece though who took home $145,000 after agreeing a heads up chop. Nitsche’s win took his career earnings past the $2m mark and adds a WPT title to previous WSOP, LAPT and Middle East Poker Championships. Not bad for someone who’s not even 23. The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1st Dominik Nitsche $206,1532nd Jerome Bradpiece $121,4773rd William Ross $80,9854th Wesley Weigand $56,3215th Jason Strauss $41,9656th Andrew Anthony $32,394 Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
