Tobias Reinkemeier (born 7 April 1987) is a German professional poker player from Cuxhaven. [1]



Reinkemeier began playing poker in 2006 and started playing live tournaments in 2007 with small cashes.

At the 2009 EPT Barcelona Main Event, Reinkemeier was accused of angle shooting professional poker player Roland De Wolfe after calling De Wolfe's river bet. The community cards in order were A 10 7 9 4, while Reinkemeier and De Wolfe were the only players remaining in the hand. As the last player to have either bet or raised during the final round of betting, De Wolfe was expected to reveal his hand first. After a brief discussion, De Wolfe intentionally flashed K face up, then placed the same card face down without revealing his second hole card, presumably to suggest his hesitancy to showing a bluff. With cards in hand, De Wolfe appears to fold by motioning both hole cards towards the muck, and temporarily placing both hole cards under the pile of discarded cards. As De Wolfe appeared to have surrendered the pot, Reinkemeier immediately revealed Q 6 which failed to make a club flush and finished with High Card Queen. By this point in time, the dealer had revealed De Wolfe’s hole cards as K 8, or High Card King which would have been the winning hand. Recognizing this, De Wolfe attempted to retrieve his cards claiming his hand was not mucked. A tournament director was called to the table to settle the growing dispute, and ruled that De Wolfe had indeed folded awarding the pot to Reinkemeier. [2]

In 2010, Reinkemeier won the EPT €25,000 High Roller event for €965,000. [3] Reinkemeier finished 5th in the 2014 WSOP $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop event, earning $2,053,334. [4]

Reinkemeier plays online under the nickname PokerNoob999. He won 29 May 2011 Sunday Millions on PokerStars for $135,053. [5] As of 2016, Reinkemeier's live tournament winnings exceed $10,500,000 putting him 3rd on the German all time money list behind Fedor Holz and Ole Schemion.

As of 2019 he had left playing Poker with a net worth of only around 130.000 Euro after the good run ended.

Personal life

Reinkemeier was born in Germany and currently resides in London.

Texas hold em Variation of the card game of poker

Texas hold 'em is one of the most popular variants of the card game of poker. Two cards, known as hole cards, are dealt face down to each player, and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards, later an additional single card, and a final card. Each player seeks the best five card poker hand from any combination of the seven cards; the five community cards and their two hole cards. Players have betting options to check, call, raise, or fold. Rounds of betting take place before the flop is dealt and after each subsequent deal. The player who has the best hand and has not folded by the end of all betting rounds wins all of the money bet for the hand, known as the pot. In certain situations, a "split-pot" or "tie" can occur when two players have hands of equivalent value. This is also called a "chop-pot".
