"You guys ready for work?" Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu yelled as he looked over his shoulder and spotted a group of guys called "Ze Germans".
The top Germans professional poker players are known for their ferocious playing style and that will come in handy during this extremely tough event.
We spotted Tobias Reinkemeier, Fabian Quoss, Philipp Gruissem and Max Altergott all picking up their seat cards at the same time, and with that the field is up to around 32 players.
Altergott won the €100,000 Super High Roller in Monte Carlo last May for €1.7 million and he’s looking for his second ever live tournament cash here in London.
Other Germans, Ole Schemion, Martin Finger and Johannes Strassmann are also playing in today’s event and that means there’s a really good chance one of “Ze Germans,” will make it to the final table.
"I kept asking where Ze Germans are," Mike Watson joked as he no longer has to look for these tough competitors. They are at his table.
