Dominik Nitsche wins the Unibet Open Online High Event
Dominique Nitsche has become the first Unibet Open champion in 2021, beating 318 opponents in the €1 100 Unibet Open Online High. Nitsche, who played under the "limingwei" nickname, managed to collect all 4 785 000 chips at the end of the tournament, pocketing the main prize of €68 527.
The tournament featured 290 players, and 29 rebuys were made. As a result, a prize pool of €334 950 was formed that, exceeded the claimed guarantee of €250K by almost €85K. Only 66 players made it to the second day of the event. Twenty-two participants from Day 2, including "KarlHeinz2", left the tournament with nothing. KarlHeinz2 became a bubble boy of that competition.
The minimum payout was €2 264; the prize money rose steadily as the final table approached. The Unibet Poker Ambassador Dara O'Kearney expected to make a deep run but took only 20th place, earning 3 000 euros.

All but two final table players added five-figure prize money to their bankrolls. In the decisive heads-up, "deucesWild" failed to outplay Nitsche, so the experienced German player recorded another victory, which brought him big money, namely €68 500.
Dominik highly appreciated the event and said that he hoped to again play in the same tournament. The guy also added that it had been really nice to play such a big tournament because he missed competing in live events for obvious reasons.
