Introducing, for the first time, the Swiss National Match Poker team that will participate in the IFMP Nations Cup Qualifiers from Europe.
The Swiss team has been created by the official Swiss member federation of IFMP, Swiss Poker Sport Association (SPSA).
Claudia Chinello – 42, Entrepreneur and Business Poker Coach – Life is a game! We negotiate every day in business and in private, and my poker know-how definitely makes me more successful in everyday life.
Chantal Funk – 40, Trance Healing and Mother – As a mother of three children, I seek a balance from everyday family life in work, sport and poker.
Christoph Reiser – 43, Film Journalist – I am a film journalist, podcast operator and have been a passionate poker player for 20 years.
Kaspar Schmid – 64, Senior Consultant Finance – Poker is never boring, but it is challenging and makes demands on mathematical knowledge, the ability to concentrate, but also on intuition and feeling.
Oliver Lutz – 46, Floorman – I have been playing poker for more than 20 years. Since then, I have been particularly enthusiastic about the competition that this game entails. I love to compete with players all over the world.
Manuel Vögtlin – 36, Team Leader Payment Branch – I have been playing poker for 17 years, and have also been playing in international tournaments for 11 years. I am fascinated by the many facets of the game and the fact that you have to constantly develop and adapt in order to play successfully.
Bashkim Nexhipi – 36 – I have been playing poker since 2002. What I love about it is that you can read players and read their minds as the game goes on.
Arnold Schuler – 49, Investment Advisor – Started playing poker with friends in 2010. He then became more and more involved with game variants and strategies. He especially likes the fact that poker is played globally by young and old.
Prachoinig Hubert – 44, Floor Layer – He came into contact with poker as a child and it has never let him go. During the last big poker boom, he became intensively involved with the game for the first time, and subsequently also internalised a lot online. What he finds fascinating about poker is that the rules are child’s play, yet the game remains challenging for life.
Iwan Tschubarow – 36, Croupier – Started organising home games with buddies in 2005 and got to know the first moves. Since then I am an enthusiastic player and spend a lot of time at the Cash Game tables.
