Seat 5: Andreas Wiese, 35, Hannover, Germany – 1,670,000

PokerStars qualifier Andreas Wiese has been playing poker for six years, mainly focusing on live games. He’s been playing tournaments for a couple of years – his best result to date being sixth place at EPT Vienna last season.

That was his first major event, but he also came third in a €1,000 side event here in Prague last year and was 14th at EPT Snowfest in March.

He regularly plays cash games at his local casino in Hannover and considers himself a “semi-professional” although still working as an anaesthesist at Hannover Hospital.
