The Netherlands’ most popular tournament, the Master Classics of Poker came to a conclusion over the weekend when Ole Schemion took down the €5,000 main event.
In a tournament that featured some of the world’s best players, including Lex Veldhuis, Marvin Rettenmaier and Ana Marquez, it was Germany’s Schemion who claimed the €286,200 first place prize. Having claimed his biggest career score after winning the Partouche Poker Tour back in September this year, Schemion was in a confident mood going into the final table. However, with the likes of Bryn Kenney and Pieter de Korver all nursing healthy stacks at the start of the finale it was never going to be easy for Schemion. However, after Kenney hit the rail in sixth, the 20-year old Schemion looked in control of the table. Indeed, with one of the toughest players at the final now watching from the rail Schemion just needed to defeat Pieter de Korver heads-up to take the title. Such a challenge wasn’t going to be easy though as de Korver certainly had a more impressive résumé on paper. That didn’t seem to faze Schemion though as he kept his composure to edge out de Korver and bank his second biggest live win to date.
