ANZPT Sydney Day 2 Complete, Dejan Divkovic Dominates

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
ANZPT Sydney Day 2 Chip Leader, Dejan Divkovic
ANZPT Sydney Day 2 Chip Leader, Dejan Divkovic

Day 2 of the 2013 Australia New Zealand Poker Tour Sydney Main Event has officially come to an end. Returning today were 175 players to battle it out, and by the end we were left with just 22. The field will return tomorrow to fight it out for the trophy and the $223,600 first-place prize.

The remaining 22 will all be chasing one man, Dejan Divkovic, who steamrolled through the final few levels of the day to finish with a stack of 1.434 million in chips. That more than doubles his nearest opponent, Donald Jones, who accumulated a respectable 689,000.

The day started with some big names including Ashley Warner, Ricky Kroesen, Martin Kozlov, Brendan Rubie, Dale Marsland, Joe Cabret and Tom Wing. Unfortunately for those players mentioned, they were unable to make a deep run in the tournament.

Be sure to join the PokerNews Live Reporting Team from 2 p.m. tomorrow, as we bring you all the up-to-date action as we close in on crowning the next ANZPT Sydney Main Event champion.

It's All Over

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

The play has ended here on Day 2. We will have a full wrap along with all the chips counts as well as the Day 3 table draw posted as soon as possible.

Carlton Gone on the Last Hand

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Adam Carlton didn't want to stick around to Day 3 with a short stack, so on the final hand of the evening, he moved all in pre-flop with his remaining chips and was called by an opponent.

Carlton: {7-}{8-}
Opponent: {Q-}{Q-}

The board would not help Carlton, who at one stage looked like being one of the major threats of taking out the title.

Desai Yesha Eliminated in 24th Place

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Action started with Dejan Divkovic opening to 16,000 from under the gun, before the player in the kijack moved all in for his remaining 468,000 in chips. Desai Yesha was on the button, and did not look to happy about having to make a decision for her tournament life. She finally committed her last 100,000 into the pot, as Divkovic got out of the way.

Opponent: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Yesha: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Yesha had run into a monster, and the board didn't help, as it ran out {9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades} to see her leave a hand before the completion of the day.

Three More Hands

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

With 10 minute left on the clock, the Tournament Director just announced the remaining players will play three more hands before the end of play.

Carlton Crippled

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

The action folded around to Adam Carlton in middle position who opened with a bet of 16,000. It folded around to his opponent in the cut-off who raised to 36,000. Carlton instantly moved all in for 235,000 in chips, which sent his opponent into the tanks. After a moment he made the call and the cards were tabled.

Carlton: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

“Such a slow roll,” sighed Carlton, who was upset it took his opponent so long to make the call.

The board ran out {7-Spades}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{A-Clubs} to see him drop to just 35,000 in chips.

De Cesare’s Quads

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Action folded around to Adam Carlton in the cut-off who bet out 16,000 in chips. Amanda De Cesare was on the button, and instantly moved all in for her remaining 95,000 in chips. Carlton eventually made the call, and the cards were tabled.

De Cesare: {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Carlton: {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}

The board ran out {J-Spades}{6-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}, much to the delight of the rail, who cheered as the jack hit the river to give De Cesare quads.
