German poker pro, Fedor Holz is leading in the $100,000 buy-in Poker Masters series final event.
Holz, who is regarded to be one of the most successful and brightest poker players at the young age of 24, has around $24 million in live tournament winnings. He may further add another $1.5 million to his profile with the event along with the first ever Poker Masters Purple Jacket.
The fate of the match depends on how Steffen Sontheimer, German poker pro performs. The two fellow country players are undoubtedly one of the best poker players in the world.
The Race To The Purple Jacket
Sontheimer won the Event #2 along with the $900,000 cash prize. Sontheimer stands with the total $1,221,000 in cash at the Poker Masters. A player needs to have most money won during the series to win the Purple jacket. Sontheimer if finishes at the second place, with pays of $864,000 holds the chance to lock up the Purple Jacket.
Even if the player finished in 3rd place and Holz doesn’t win, Sontheimer would still hold a chance to win the purple jacket, provided Stefan Schillhabel from Germany doesn’t take the $1.5 million prize.
