Pius Heinz

Pius Heinz was one of the least known players at the 2011 World Series of Poker, but his run in the Main Event put him on the poker map in a way that not only put him in contention for $8.7 million but garnered a sponsorship from PokerStars in the meantime. Pius Heinz was born and raised in Germany, calling Cologne home. He focused on his education, which took him to a university where he studied business psychology with a personal focus on history. Math was certainly not his strong suit, as he later admitted, but he took his studies seriously. Heinz and friends saw poker on television courtesy of the World Series of Poker and High Stakes Poker, both which aired on German television. They decided to start their own games and played cash games and sit-n-gos at home whenever time allowed. With studies taking up a fair amount of his time, however, he decided to take his game online. It was on sites like PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker that Heinz truly honed his hold’em game. He knew that skill was involved, so he played more to understand the game while also participating in poker forums to share ideas and learn from more skilled players. He claimed that he learned the fundamentals there and developed an aggressive style.
