Dominik Nitsche has scooped the Unibet Open Online Main Event, the German pro adding €68,527, to more than $7million in online winnings.

The 5th version of the popular event boasted a €250k guarantee, but attracted 319 entries, each paying €1,100, to easily surpass that figure.

Nitsche, playing under the username “limingwei”, flew under the radar, stating after his win:

“I also want to give a shoutout to my friends Dara “Doke” O’Kearney and David Lappin who I crossed paths with in the tournaments. Unluckily for them, they didn’t know who I was!”

Returning for day two with 66 players left, it was Nitsche who was last man standing, Unibet ambassador O’Kearney falling in 20th place for €3,128. A total of 44 players made the money with a min-cash worth €2,264.

The Edinburgh-based winner said:

“I really enjoyed the tournament. It’s really nice to be able to play a big tournament these days since I kinda miss competing in the big live stuff. So thanks to Unibet for putting this on – and I hope this is an event that we’ll see again in the future before we get back to playing to live poker."

Nataly Sopacuaperu, Unibet’s Head of Events, said:

“Wow to Dominik Nitsche – what an amazing player! This was a fantastic victory and a great start to the 2021 Unibet Open festivals. We look forward to many more great tournaments on Unibet Poker this year and hope everyone who took part enjoyed the first Unibet Online Series.”
