| Another Julian. And that Vasili guy is on a streak too.|
Germans are becoming the feared poker players of Europe if not already. I'm starting to think that as a nation they are up there with America for best players at least in oturnaments.

| Yeah nice cup win, the picture with him holding the cup is priceless it is so rare, they just get small bracelets for those big events at least he gets a good trophy and a nice sum of money before christmas cheers keep it up!|

| Heskor, he got a up because bracelets are usually given on wsop but i agree that this cup is much more impressive than a bracelet!|
But i guess there is another reason for which they offer bracelets, i mean the owner could go anywhere with it an brag, with a cup is so much harder to do that and in can only be displayed in a case.

| what happened to huge WPT prizes, winner now gets 200k tops it used to be much higher in the past, no?|
i mean there are regular events on some online poker sites with $50-$200k prize pools and much lower buy ins :o i always thought these mainstream online events would have much higher prizes than online ones...
oh well, still quite a decent win doubt he could complain about winning 'just' 200k though, lol

| Ending the year with a €200k first prizemust have helped giving a better reveillon to him and his closest friends and family. But poker money always tend to return to the table, so i guess there must be a part of this prize that will surely be invested on poker again, even if it is to try to win even bigger prizes!|
