Jan-Peter Jachtmann Wins WSOP Event 39 --$10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship
German Tops Farha, Mercier For First Bracelet and $661,000 For
Germany’s Jan-Peter Jachtmann has emerged victorious in the 2012 World Series of Poker $10,000 pot-limit Omaha championship, capturing his first WSOP gold bracelet, the $661,000 first-place prize and 1,140 Card Player Player of the Year points, catapulting him into 80th place in the overall standings.
“For me, this was the highlight. I came over here specifically to play three pot-limit Omaha events,” said Jachtmann. “It was a dream just to make the final table of the $10,000 event, and now I won the championship. It’s unbelievable. Pot-limit Omaha, I played for many years, and it is the game that I play almost every day in cash games in Germany. This is my best game, for sure.”
Although Jachtmann is not a full-time professional, he has been playing the poker for two decades, and also publishes a poker magazine for the German speaking market, where he believes that the public is becoming more and more accepting of poker.
“Definitely [poker] is regarded more and more as a skill game… and it there are no more bad feelings about poker anymore. It’s a mind sport, and this is why I think it will stay for a long time.”
Jachtmann had to overcome a tough field of 293 players, with a number of notables making deep runs to the final day including John Kabbaj (13th – $33,794), Sammy Farha (11th – $43,076), Ville Wahlbeck (10th – $43,076), Jason Mercier (8th – $72,132), Andy Seth (5th – $165,665) and eventual runner-up Andrew Brown (2nd – $408,393).
