World Poker Tour Vienna – Kogovsek In Pole Position On Final Table
The World Poker Tour Vienna National Main Event has been quietly going on in the background throughout the last few days, with the Montesino Casino hosting the €1,100 NLHE event. It has now reached the final table and the player that has emerged as the chip leader is Tomaz Kegovsek ho hails from Slovenia.
The final table of eight is an extremely multi-national affair as there are seven different nationalities on display with players from Germany, Montenegro, Austria, Hungary, Israel, Czech Republic and of course the Slovenian chip leader.
The Start Of Day 2 saw 76 players returning to the felt with just 36 of them potentially able to make the money paying places. There was a whole host of notable players taking part such as Bodo Sbrzeesny, David Taborsky and Thomas Muhlocker.
The Tail Of Two Bubbles!
There were actually two bubbles today with one being for the paying places and the other for that prestigious final table. The player who was unfortunate to finish in 37th place and just one place short of the pay was that of Emil Hegedus who lost a coin flip with his A-K against an opponent’s pocket queens.
The bubble boy for the final table was Thomas Duta who found himself busted out of the tournament just one place short of the final table by Thomas Muhlocker.
The final table is set to start today at 2pm local time, with the winner set to take down a total of €60,600 for his troubles. Each of the final table players are guaranteed a payout of at least €8,100 whilst they will all be looking to secure much more than that.
