In our earlier story we revealed that 29 year old poker professional Johannes Strassmann was confirmed to be the dead body found in Slovenia a week after he had been reported missing.
This has left the poker world in shock with many of his friends and fellow poker players heading to social media to share their thoughts on the player and pay their respects. Strassmann was well respected both as a person and for the ability he had with regards to poker.
He played regularly on the poker circuit and made many friends due to his happy personality and his strong poker game.
Such awful news. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Johannes Strassmann. He was always such a sweet guy to speak to & interview
