WPT Caribbean Day 5 – Dunst Surges To Title Win

Tony Dunst

Another event is now in the books after the World Poker Tour Caribbean played out its fifth and final day on the felt in order to reveal the latest WPT champion of the year. This time around it was Tony Dunst that came out on top of the remaining field of six to scoop the first place payout of $145,000 and of course the complimentary $15,400 seat in the end of season WPT World Championship event.

This marks the first WPT title for Dunst and one that he readily admits he ran well to claim. He was up against a very tough final table too, yet he started the day as the chip leader and never lost that position until he was the only player left in the event.

He had former WPT winners on his table in the likes of 2012 European Player Of The Year Marvin Rettenmaier and Giacomo Fundaro, which makes the achievement all that better.

The day started with the six players that had done enough to battle it out for the title but it was Robbie Bakker who was the first to depart. He was quickly joined on the rail by Zoltan Purak before we were left with the big four remaining.

Rettenmaier has a great history on the World Poker Tour but he was the next to go in 4th place for a payout of $46,500. That left just three remaining before Dunst successfully eliminated Severin Schleser when his As-Kc completely dominated the Ac-Qd of his opponent and successfully held out.

That left the final two and we already know what happened from then on as Dunst claimed his very WPT title throughout his poker career.

How It Finished

1st) Tony Dunst – $145,000

2nd) Giacomo Fundaro – $100,000

3rd) Severin Schleser – $63,500

4th) Marvin Rettenmaier – $46,800

5th) Zoltan Purak – $35,900

6th) Robbie Bakker – $28,700

This marks the end of yet another exciting poker event for the year of 2013, meaning there are not too many more left before we celebrate the New Year.
