ANZPT Snowfest: Jonathan Bredin wins the last step of the Season V
Since last week, the poker room of Sky City casino of Queenstown knew a significant attendance because of the sixth and last step of the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT). 126 players took the departure of the Main Event; but after a few days of competition, only 9 players reached the final table, which guaranteed a minimum gain of more than $10,000. Already chipleader during the Day 2 and Day 3, Jonathan Bredin kept his advance till the end of the competition and pocketed the NZD 93,000, or 55,230 promised to the winner.
The final table started on Sunday evening at about 10:30 p.m (local hour) with Jonathan Bredin as chipleader (657,000 chips). Jon Pierre Narbey was second in chips, at the beginning of this final, with (408,000), followed by Raj Ramakrishnan (271,000), Ricky Kroesen (241,000), Chiu Yeung Lee (161,000), Michael Chon (134,000), Daniel Neilson (122,000), Daniel Laidlaw (106,000) and Colin Carpenter (89,000). Michael Chon was the first who left the table, followed a few hands after by Daniel Neilson. The shortstack of the day, Colin Carpenter, didnt hold out a long time in front of Jonathan Bredin and left the final table at the 7th place. Elimination continued with those of Raj Ramakrishnan (6th), Jon Pierre Narbey (5th) and Ricky Kroesen (4th), before Chiu Yeung Lee who failed at his turn at the third place. In the last hand of the final heads-up of this poker tournament, Jonathan Bredin counted the double of his opponent, Daniel Laidlaws stack. Bredin won his first major title, while Daniel Laidlaw got over $59,550 for his place of runner-up.
