German footballer wins WPT Montreal Closer

German footballer Christoph Moritz

The WPT Montreal at PartyPoker has ended with a $530 buy-in tournament. It was a 2-day event carried out in the progressive knockout format. German football player Christoph Moritz shot down the biggest number of opponents and eventually won the competition.

Christoph moved from "Darmstadt 98" to "Regensburg" in 2020. The footballer is 31 years old and his professional football career is coming to an end. The guy should think about what to do after his career ends and, perhaps, it will be poker.

For first place, Christoph earned nearly $60 000, while investing only $530 (entry fee). For the record, $60 000 is about the player's salary for a month and a half in the 2. Bundesliga. If Moritz keeps this up, then he can make poker his main source of income.

The final table featured no super famous poker players. There were three British players – all of them entered the top 4, but none could become the tournament winner. Christoph Moritz received $31 000 for first place and $28 000 as bounty for eliminating opponents from the event.

I’ve been working in the Cardmates team since 2018. Started playing poker the same way most people usually do – socially, with friends and fellow students. I adored those exciting poker nights but never thought my life would be connected with this game, even tangentially.
