credit: pokernews.comThanks to two wins, four cashes, and more than $2.7 million in overall earnings have made it possible for Steffen Sontheimer of Germany to finally obtain the Poker Masters Purple JacketTM.

The first ever Poker Masters at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas was made up of four $50,000 buy-in tournaments, with a $100,000 freeze out finale. Steffen ‘Goose' Sontheimer reached the final table on four of these events, and dominated two to earn a total of $2,733,000 in accumulated winnings, along with The Poker Masters Purple JacketTM. Take note, the only one tournament he didn't win any cash, it turned out that he was eliminated on the bubble in 8th place.

The exciting finale of the inaugural Poker Masters, Event #5 $100,000 Buy-in No-limit Hold'em, attracted 36 entrants, and after a grueling 3 days, Sontheimer knocked off fellow German Christian Christner in a heads-up match to seize the top prize of $1,512,000.

Here are Sontheimer's stats on the first four Poker Masters $50,000 buy-in tournaments:

Event #1 - 4th place for $306,000
Event #2 - 1st place for $900,000
Event #3 - 8th place, bubbled
Event #4 - 5th place for $117,000

Just looking at his stats above, this goes to show that Sontheimer played against some of the best poker players across the globe, and astonishingly his only slip-up was when he finished 8th. Still, he technically made it to all five Poker Masters tables. As of now, he has a total of 31 cashes since 2015, and 18 of those have come from high-roller events.

Before Poker Masters, Sontheimer had $3,551,390 in overall tournament earnings. Remarkably, his previous best score of $1,223,264 came when he placed 2nd in May's ARIA $100,000 Super High Roller 19, with Christian Christner bagging the top spot.

Many congratulations to Steffan Sontheimer on winning this massive event and the $1,512,000 first prize. It is quite incredible that the first three places were filled by German players

and if you look at the top 6 you will see that there is still a German and two Americans. Very interesting this tournament with a very big buy in. It is not easy to allow such a thing. These guys have done something nice. I think they will celebrate everyone in their own way but with sausages and beer. Maybe some Muslims can keep their warmth coming winter. Shock

Four times in the money in this series ... someone is having a good run and plenty of luck Smile
And although he bubbled one, i doubt it was that a big deal for him, having in mind
his other results. Almost 3 millions winnings Smile

Yes like the information say to finish in the money in four tournaments out of five and in one only one place from money again is very good results with so many good players in all tournaments, this is high roller tournaments so not easy to beat players here.
 Mober24/09/2017 18:28:50 GMT
Only good> After a result like this you can clearly say i dont want anything more this years.
Not that too long left on this one, but still.
It is an accomplishment that many player dont get in a lifetime, let alone in a single series.
He may forget other finishes but not these ones Smile
