In April, Sontheimer took part in the €100k Super High Roller PokerStars Championship Monte-Carlo, eventually booking a 6th place finish for €380,700 ($415,348). The following month, Sontheimer then landed his biggest score ever after a runner-up finish at the Aria High Roller $25,000 in which he walked away richer to the tune of $1,223,264.
In June, he added a further $217,354 to his burgeoning bankroll after another runner-up finish, this time at the $25,000 Aria High Roller for $217,354, and in July Sontheimer subsequently captured his first live tournament title, following an impressive run in which he overcame a small field of 9 players at the $25,000 Bellagio High Roller for $111,648.
On July 18th, the German pro attended the HK$100k Triton Super High Roller Main Event in Montenegro, after which he added HK$2,446,000 ($313,423) to his earnings, and according to the latest report, this week Sontheimer has captured a second career title, this time winning the Poker EM €27,000 High Roller for €430,000 ($503,508).
