ANZPT Season 5 Winners and Prizes
Congratulations to Jonathan Bredin - winner of ANZPT Queenstown Snowfest!
Jonathan Bredin was crowned 2013 ANZPT Queenstown Snowfest Champion, winning close to NZD$100,000 for his efforts after outlasting 125 players. Jonathan "Jono" Bredin, aged 23, has Cerebral Palsy and is wheelchair bound. His limited speech and movement require the assistance of a helper at the table and he won into this tournament through an online satellite at PokerStars. He collected the title, trophy and NZD$93,600 for the win.
Elsewhere there were wins for Anthony Hachem at the Repechage event in Melbourne, while the stand-out performance came from Dejan Divkovic, who very nearly became the first player in ANZPT history to win back-to-back titles. After winning in Perth, the Bosnian came up just short in Sydney, finishing in second place behind Switzerland’s Dinesh Alt.
In Auckland the big winner was Geoff Smith who scooped NZD $80,502 after a four-way deal was made at the final table, while the opening event in Melbourne was won by was Paul Hockin, who secured AUD $101,275 for first place.
