Back-to-back POY titles for Germany?
According to a source at the Global Poker Index, Ole Schemion can overtake Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu in the 2013 Player of the Year race with a 17th-place finish or higher in the EPT Prague Main Event.
Negreanu, who already left Prague due to poor internet, currently leads with 1130.87 points, and Schemion is in second with 1026.40 points.
Kid Poker has racked up over $3.2 million in tournament earnings in 2013, winning two more World Series of Poker gold bracelets, his second WSOP Player of the Year title, and reaching the final table of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final.
His German counterpart has had an equally impressive 2013 campaign, banking over $1.3 million. Schemion reached two final tables at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, won three events at EPT Grand Final, reached two final tables at EPT Barcelona, and finished runner-up in a £5,000 buy-in turbo event at EPT London.
