Team PokerStars Pro Marcel "Flying Dutchman" Luske, 60, who's well known for always wearing a suit and singing at the poker tables, has been running extremly well in the past five months or so. It all started in December 2012 when he bested a field of 130-players at the PokerStars Hold'em Challenge Winter Edition €500 NLH event at the Casino de Namur in Belgium ($15,162).
A month later, he went across the world to take part in the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and managed to win two events: Event #16 $1,000 HORSE for $18,500 and Event #32 $1,000 8 Game for $13,810.
Despite his good run at the 2013 PCA, Luske was hungry for more titles and therefore headed to EPT Berlin 2 months later. There he overcame a field of 119-players in the €1,000 PLO Eight-Handed event to win $41,946 on April 23, then, just two days later, he won the €1,000 Seven Card Stud Deepstack event, good for $9,399.
Marcel Luske has more than $4.1 million in career live earnings and 31 live tournament wins. So, what is his plans for the future?
"Next for me as a poker player is playing at the most beautiful events in the world while supporting and educating the poker industry to bring in a set of the International Poker Rules," Luske told PokerStars blog. "Also to gain credibility and respect from non-poker related audiences and media, and to make it easier for players, dealers and staff to run competitions even more smoothly."
