Dominik Nitsche (born 1990) is a professional poker player, originally from Minden, Germany but now residing in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Nitsche began playing poker online in 2006, amassing winnings exceeding $3 million.[1] In 2009, playing in his first live poker tournament, he won a Latin American Poker Tour event in Mar del Plata, Argentina, earning $381,000. In 2012 he won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, outlasting a field of 4,620 in a $1,000 No Limit Hold'em tournament and earning $654,000. Later that same year he won a World Poker Tour title in South Africa. The next year he made the final table of the same tournament before finishing in 4th place.

In 2014 Nitsche added two WSOP bracelets. First, he won the WSOP National Championship for $352,000. He then won another $1,000 NLHE tournament, becoming at age 23 the youngest player to win 3 bracelets (Phil Ivey was 26 when he won his third).[2] He also made the final table of the WSOP Europe Main Event in 2013, finishing in 3rd place.

At the 2017 WSOPE Nitsche won his fourth bracelet in the €111,111 High Roller for One Drop event. The prize of €3,487,463 ($4,064,000) was his largest career cash.[3]
