partypoker German Poker Championships: wins for Sinclair & Karmatckii

TAGs: Arsenii Karmatckii, German Poker Championships, Jack Sinclair, PartyPoker, WSOP 2017

partypoker LIVE has organised another successful event, this time at the German Poker Championships, in Rozvadov with Arsenii Karmatckii taking down the Main Event, and Jack Sinclair winning the €25,000 Super High Roller.

The form was simple.

Players would qualify for the World Series of Poker (WSOP) November Nine, and then smash it up at the tables in between July and November. With the November Nine a dead duck, Jack Sinclair is changing the form.

The British pro was an unknown quantity when he made it through the 7,221 player field to make the final table of the WSOP Main Event. Before that unbelievable run, his largest live score was £7.5k for finishing 161/1204 in the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS in Dusk Till Dawn, Nottingham.

After securing a $1.2m score for this 8th place finish in the Main Event, he wandered into the partypoker German Poker Championships hoping to maintain momentum, and maintain it he has.

Firstly, Sinclair finished fourth in the €5,300 8-Max High Roller for €30,000, and he has just taken down the €25,000 8-Max High Roller for €250,000. The event attracted 28 entrants, beating the €500,000 guaranteed by €65,000, and Sinclair took the impressive scalp of Tony G in heads-up action.

Both Sinclair and Tony G agreed on a heads-up deal after Steffen Sontheimer hit the rail in third. The G-Meister General collected €300,000; Sinclair settled for €240,000, and the pair left €10,000 in the middle. Sinclair took that €10,000 after his KJ beat the JJ of Tony G in the final hand.
