Dominik Nitsche Wins Germany's Second World Series of Poker Bracelet Of The Summer
Nitsche Scores $654,797 Payday
The penultimate preliminary event at the 2012 World Series of Poker came to an end on Saturday with poker pro Dominik Nitsche coming out on top.
Nitsche, from Minden, Germany, won the $1,000 no-limit hold’em tournament, besting a field of 4,620 players on his way to a massive $654,797 payday.
The 21-year-old cruised by his final table opponents, who were all hoping for second place. That honor went to Chattanooga, Tennessee native Jonathan Hilton, who collected $405,156.
This was Germany’s second bracelet of the 2012 series. Jan-Peter Jachtmann earned his two weeks ago in the $10,000 pot-limit Omaha event.
Here is a look at the final table results.
