ANZPT Sydney Champion, Dinesh Alt

After four days of poker, a winner has been crowned in the 2013 PokerStars.net ANZPT Season 5 Sydney Main Event. The tournament started with 460 runners, and 22 returned for the final day of play. A grueling 13-hour day would see the field dwindled down to just one, as Dinesh Alt would become the next champion on the ANZPT.

Alt overcame all odds to finish as the champion and collect AUD$226,300 for his efforts. He had to outlast a field of notable players including Trung Tran, Amanda De Cesare, Sam Khouiss, Iori Yogo, Ben Gilholme, Dan Kelly, Gary Benson and finally Dejan Divkovic.

Most of the talk, however, would be about Divkovic who finished second behind Alt. He’ll always be remembered as the guy who almost won back-to-back ANZPT titles. He is now a clear frontrunner to take the ANZPT Player of the Year title.

Divkovic Crushed

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

The hand started with Dejan Divkovic min-raising from the button and getting called by Dinesh Alt. The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} as both players checked their options. A {6-Clubs} fell on the turn as Alt checked over to Divkovic who put in a continuation bet which was called. The river produced the {7-Spades} and again Alt checked. Divkovic bet out 230,000 in chips, before Alt pushed out a raise to 500,000. Divkovic didn’t stop there, as he slid out a re-raise to 1,100,000 in chips. After a minutes pause, Alt moved all in which upset Divkovic.

“Do you have 8-9?” queried Divkovic, as he sat back in his chair. “I have a six.”

He eventually made the call, as Alt did his customary slow-roll reveal, tabling {8-Spades}{9-Hearts} for the straight. Divkovic could only shake his head, as his {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} was tabled.

Alt Ties It Up

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Chips are almost dead-even after Dinesh Alt just won back some chips. The hand started with Alt opening to 100,000 in chips, before Dejan DIvkovic came over the top, with a raise to 300,000 in chips. Alt called as both saw the flop come down {7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. Divkovic check-called a 500,000 bet, as the {10-Clubs} fell on the turn. Both players checked to see the {Q-Spades} complete the board. Divkovic bet out 560,000 almost instantly, and after a minute of deliberation, Alt made the call.

“I have a pair of sixes,” said Divkovic, tabling his {6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

Alt casually rolled over {Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs} for two-pair as he scooped in the large pot.
