Dominik Nitsche has come out on top of an illustrious field to capture €3,487,463 and another WSOP gold bracelet in Event #10: €111,111 High Roller for One Drop No-Limit Hold’em. Nitsche defeated his fellow German counterpart, Andreas Eiler in a heads-up match that saw Nitsche show complete domination. Eiler has nothing to be ashamed of as he will walk away with €2,155,418.
Nitsche struck gold for the fourth time in his career, this one for the largest payday. Nitsche started his poker career as an online grinder and became known to many worldwide as one of the best. His previous three bracelets came in $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em events with his biggest score being $654,797. This one means a little more to Nitsche, competing against some of the best players in the world, and the €3.4 million added bonus doesn’t hurt either.
When asked what it feels like to win his fourth bracelet, Nitsche gave a pretty humble answer. “It’s really nice, it’s not about the bracelets for me it’s about how well I played. Im more proud of how I played rather than I won.”
Nitsche looked as strong as ever when it came down to heads-up play and he credited the work he has been putting into the game. “I’ve put a lot of time recently, into heads-up cash games so I felt comfortable all the way through. I felt like I was the strongest player and made now mistakes. I played perfect, there was nothing I would change.”
There are many of Nitsche’s friends from Germany that also compete in these prestige events throughout the world and Nitsche feels like he belongs now. “I compete in the high-rollers because I love battling with the best so to finally win one of those feels fantastic. I’ll be looking forward to winning number five now because winning tournaments is fun.”
