After running for 15 successful days at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, the World Poker Tour (WPT) Germany concluded on Sunday. Closing out the series in style was the €3,300 Main Event €1.5 Million GTD where 510 entries registered. In the end, coming out on top of the field was the native player Christopher Puetz who outlasted Laszlo Papai in heads-up to earn €270,000 prize.
The final day of the event began with 9 players returning to the felts. The first player to exit on the day was Rifat Gegic (9th for €24,000), and he was followed by Renato Nowak (8th for €31,000). All eyes were on the 2019 WSOP Main Event champion Hossein Ensan but his run eventually ended in 7th place (€40,000). Following Ensan’s elimination, the six-handed FT was reached with Joep van den Bijgaart (8,555,000), Laszlo Papai ( 3,995,000) and Christopher Puetz (3,790,000) in top 3 positions.
While Puetz began the final table with the third largest stack, he went on to chip up nicely and eventually outlast everyone from the table. Eventually, he battled it with Laszlo Papa in heads-up. The latter started the dual as chip leader, but Puetz was able to get ahead and win the title. The last hand saw Papai with 4h 4d, while Puetz with Qd 9c. The board ran 49QQ7, giving the title to Puetz.
