Pius Heinz: 2011 WSOP November Nine

22-year-old Pius Heinz (left) is the first German player to reach the November Nine, but as he told ESPN yesterday he wasn't exactly carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders to make it happen. 

"I don't feel any pressure at all. The field left is really strong [and there are] a lot of really good players left.

"My tournament went pretty smoothly for the most part and I'm just happy to be here. Whatever happens, happens."

"Whatever happened" was he cruised his way to the final nine off the back of 21-year-old Russian Andrey Pateychuk, taking virtually all of the young Russian's chips over the course of Day 8 before finally busting him.

Heinz has already had a fairly successful WSOP, finishing seventh in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event for his first major live score and $83,286.

Online, Heinz also took down the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Mulligan in July 2010 for $61,000 and won the PokerStars $150,000 Guarantee for $29,000.

According to his profile on PocketFives, his hobbies include “playing unlimited Hold’em donkaments, partying, and what not.”
