High-stakes regular Sean Winter (cover-image) emerged victorious in Event #9: $25,000 NLHE at the 2022 Poker Masters, hosted at the PokerGO Studio inside the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The win fetched him his first Poker Masters title and a winner’s paycheque worth $432,000. The Event #1: $10K NLHE runner-up finisher, Nick Schulman, fell inches short of the title again, banking a consolation $283,500 in second place.
With over $22.90 Million in recorded live tournament earnings, Winter is one of the most flamboyant players on the circuit. He is ranked #29 on poker`s all-time money list and is the #1 ranked player in Florida, USA.
Winter`s first recorded score dates back to 2011, and his career-best finish was the whopping $2,43 Million he won for his runner-up finish in the $250K NLHE – Super High Roller Championships at the 2018 partypoker Caribbean Poker Party in Nassau. It`s been a breakout year for the American pro who has FT-ed seventeen live tournaments already, converting three of them into victory. His annual best score of $756,000 was recorded for his first-place finish in the $50K NLHE event at the U.S. Poker Open (USPO), Las Vegas.
The $25K buy-in NLHE event attracted 54 entrants, creating a prize pool of $1,350,000. Everyone who made the eight-handed final table was assured a payday with a min-cash worth $54,000.
