Fabian Quoss Triumphs At EPT Monte Carlo €50k Super High Roller

A total of 62 players entered the EPT Monte Carlo €50k Super High Roller, which together with 8 rebuys created a prize pool worth €3,430,000 ($3,925,204). Two days later, and Fabian Quoss subsequently managed to best the field, and fellow German pro Ole Schemion heads-up, to walk away with a coveted EPT title, as well its €849,059 ($971,641) first place prize.
Following his impressive victory, Fabian Quoss now boasts $9,511,045 in live career earnings placing him at number 4 on Germany’s all-time money list, just ahead of 2011 WSOP Main Event winner Pius Heinz ($9,028,569).
Although the tournament was scheduled to take place over just a single day, a halt was called to proceeding at 5:30 AM after 17 hours of play, with the two remaining competitors, Fabian Quoss and Ole Schemion, returning to the action later on at 9:00 PM.
At the start of heads-up, Schemion enjoyed a 3-to-2 chip advantage over Quoss, with the two subsequently deciding to divide the remaining prize pool €857,241 to €799,059 respectively, whilst leaving €50,000 and the title to the eventual champion.
After the final battle got underway, Quoss then quickly doubled-up and eventually managed to reduce Schemion to a 12 big blind stack before the deciding hand was played. Schemion shoved pre-flop holding K-5 only to be called by his opponent with A-Q, and after the dealer laid out an A-8-4-Q-3 board, Fabian Quoss was crowned the EPT Monte Carlo €50k Super High Roller champion.
Don’t feel to sorry for Ole Schemion, though, as he not only collected more prize money than Quoss but a few days earlier he won the EPT €100k Super High Roller for €1,597,800. As a result of his recent cashes, Ole Schemion has now become Germany’s all-time money earner with $11,084,893 in tournament earnings, ahead of Tobias Reinkemeier in 2nd ($10,528,819), and Philipp Gruissem in 3rd ($10,060,541).
Final Table Result:
1: Fabian Quoss $967,927
2: Ole Schemion $977,255
3: Aidyn Auyezkanov $528,401
4: Murad Akhundov $398,726
5: Fedor Holz $309,704
6: Mikita Badziakouski $240,004
7: Michael Bonzon $189,696
8: David Peters $147,117
