Well done! You're officially a Titan Poker Team member! How do you feel?

Since I have already played four major tournaments in conjunction with Titan Poker, I am even more delighted to be a member of the Titan Poker Team.

What is your educational background?

I am studying applied informatics at the TU Dortmund. I have a very good comprehension of mathematics and probabilities, which helps me to estimate situations at the poker table very well and in a very short time.

How long have you been playing poker for(both live and online)and how did you get started?

I started in 2006 with online poker and at the beginning I played mostly cash games. Once I had quickly climbed up in the limits, the desire to play in tournaments grabbed me and I started to play some qualification tournaments. There I was quite successful. I won a package twice to the WSOP Main Event. In addition I won packages to the ECPT Madrid and another one to the ECPT Salzburg. Recently I have started with Omaha and I am trying to establish myself in this variation.

What is your biggest win so far (live or online)?

The second place at the ECPT Salzburg with €30,000.

What is your poker philosophy?

I always play very aggressive poker and I am trying not just to get in the money, but to reach the first place.

What is your life philosophy?

Money is not the most important thing in life.

How would you describe yourself?

I am a realistic and humorous person. I get along with other people very well and I am always pleased to meet new people.

What is your favorite music/movie?

Fight Club, American Beauty and 300 are some of my favorite movies. I enjoy hip hop music.

Which poker player do you aspire to be most like and why?

I admire Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan. Both are very successful poker players and are in a position to understand their opponents.

Which tournament/country is first on your list as a new Titan Team member and why?

The ECPT in Malta. As I have already participated in the two other ECPT tournaments, I am very delighted to attend the third edition.

What do you plan to do with the prize money from each tournament (if you win)?

A large part of my profits will be added to my bankroll. From my first million I would buy myself a house and with the second a Bugatti Veyron

Any advice to other players hoping to be a part of the Titan Team?

KJ is NOT a good starting hand.
