Dominik Nitsche Wins The Superstorm Main Event on Home Turf

Dominik Nitsche

It’s a fix!

The most magnificent and monstrous online poker series ever held on 888Poker has ended with one of their own taking down the Main Event.

The $8m GTD Superstorm ended with the treasure reserved for the winner of the $320 buy-in, $1m GTD Main Event going the way of 888Poker Ambassador, Dominik Nitsche. The bearded beast from Edinburgh took down the 3,196-entrant field to capture the $121,146 first prize after the final four players had cut a deal.

The 480-event series came to an end after 567-players returned for a Day 2 that lasted less than eight hours. Nitsche had to put the work in, starting the day with seven big blinds. But it was a decent shift, with his $121,146 score ranking as his second-highest online score behind the $188,140 pocketed last year for finishing fifth in the $25,000 High Roller during the World Championships of Online Poker (WCOOP) on PokerStars.

Nitsche, who won the event on his 30th birthday, has earned more than $18.6m playing live tournaments, including four World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and a World Poker Tour (WPT) Main Event title, and has been an 888Poker ambassador since the summer of 2015.

Known for his powerhouse performance on the live felt, he has always held his own playing online in both tournaments and cash games. PocketFives shows him having more than $6.3m in online multi-table tournament (MTT) earnings.

Nitsche is the founder of the personal poker training app DTO Poker, and his team is currently working on a Super High Roller tier. Nitsche is no stranger to the scene collecting a series of results in the high stakes realm including more than $4m for taking down the €111,111 One Drop at the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE).
