Gwent's first competitive season has come to an end and as of this past weekend, one player has been crowned the winner -- and walked away over $100,000 in prize money. The winner, Benjamin 'Kolemoen' Pfannstiel from Germany, fought his way through several stages of competition, and faced the seven best players in the world to come out on top. As the winner, he earned nearly half the $250,000 prize pool, with the rest of it being broken down between the other seven players as follows:

WINNER

  • Benjamin ‘Kolemoen’ Pfannstiel (Germany)

FINALISTS

  • Benjamin ‘Kolemoen’ Pfannstiel (Germany) — $119,000

Thirty percent of proceeds from this bundle will contribute to the prize pool for the next World Masters tournament.
