Sebastian Ruthenberg Bio


After completing studies as an IT specialist, Sebastian Ruthenberg did not take the career path his schooling intended. Instead, he became a professional poker player.

The young German pro earned his first World Series of Poker bracelet in the 2008 $10,000 World Championship seven-card stud eight-or-better event. It was the first of its kind to boast more than a $1 million prize pool. After beating a field of 261 players, including heads-up opponent Chris Ferguson, Ruthenberg took home nearly $329,000 for first place.

Ruthenberg won his second major title on the European Poker Tour. He won the 2008 Barcelona Open and took home �?�1,361,000 in prize money.
