Hans-Georg Schellinger was the 2009 Germany champion, and finished in 5th place in the world at the 2009 World Championship. He also was the 2004 German champion.

From the 2009 World Championship press kit: "One of the only returning players to the MONOPOLY World Championships, Hans-Georg also represented Germany in Tokyo in 2004. Hans-Georg likes to play with the battleship token because he wants to go on a cruise. The yellow property group is his favorite to buy. If he doesn't win this year, Hans-Georg is confident that they will play in the next World Championships."
