OMG the germans are taking over the world, after Bayern Munich, we are hearing about the German poker players, it was like that in spain with their team winning and Nadal, Alonso in racing at one point!

lol Heskor Big Smile

but yea germans are on the roll when it comes to poker though. its quite often we hear how 50% of final table players on many live events are actually german.

maybe its just that more and more german players started playing poker in last few years and now they matured, or something. lol

These german players always seem to do well in the High Roller tournaments. Phillip Gruissem is nearly always on the final table in these events and the skill level of this young man must be very high indeed

Even on poker tables i see more and more german players everyday so it's no surprise that more and more german live players have better results.

Even if they lead there are some great live players still in competition like Haxton and Bonomo. A german podium would be interesting Smile

Next PCA will be for Russians.
I have the feeling that pokergods have choseen a country to win each year.
My country have been selected for the PCA in the year 3891 so I will probably have to wait a little bit to win.

I watch this ept live and pararell i play ept on Pokerstars , i want to mention that Philipp Gruissem is very good player and with 1 or maybe 2 hands he can take good place at this ept.

Best wishes to all mobsters from Germany Cool To start the poker year at the bahamas pca was a dream and i hope i won a package in the future with step or sat´s for this great event. The german poker players have a good run and one of the newcomer wons the ept prag a few weeks ago.
