Congratulations to Vladimir Bozinovic Winner of WPT Baden

Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

WPT Baden Winners PhotoDuring the WPT Baden final table build up, the poker world was getting excited over the possibility of a WPT Triple Crown for Marvin Rettenmaier. All the talk was of the mercurial German. But Day Four saw the emergence of a new star. A Serbian superstar. For large periods of Day Four Vladimir Bozinovic tore the field apart. So he would have been grateful that Rettenmaier was carrying all of the pressure into the final table. It showed as well. There was not one single bead of perspiration on the body of the ice cool Serbian. He played as aggressively as he had done the previous day, and this time he got the luck as well. Congratulations to Vladimir Bozinovic the new WPT Champions Club member.

Let’s take a look at the key points of today’s action

The first player to be eliminated was the short-stacked Polish player Grzegorz Wyraz.  The online qualifier making his move with pocket fives only to run into the pocket sixes of Oswin Ziegelbecker.

Then we had the exit that the poker world didn’t want to see. Two time WPT Champion Marvin Rettenmaier didn’t get firing today, and his final stand came in a hand against Kimmo Kurko. It was Kheart Qspade for Rettenmaier, Aclub Qclub for Kurko and five community cards later Rettenmaier was out in fifth spot. No third title for the disappointed German.

The third player eliminated was our Day 1A chip leader Kimmo Kurko. The Flying Fin having his wings clipped by Bozinovic in a hand that Kurko was favourite to win. It was Aheart Jspade for Kurko, and Kspade 9club for Bozinovic. The Kheart on the flop pushing Kurko out of the door.

The local boy was next to go. Oswin Ziegelbecker will be a player we will see on future WPT stops. Once again lady luck played her part in the demise of one of the WPT title contenders. It was Ziegelbecker with Aspade Kheart up against Bozinovic and Aclub Tclub. A Tspade on the turn sending the Serbian fans into rapture and the Austrian over to the rail.

That left the heads-up encounter between Paul Berende and Vladimir Bozinovic. It wasn’t a heads-up battle that lasted too long and you can read all about the main two hands just below this recap.

So congratulations to Vladimir Bozinovic and huge commiserations to Paul Berende who was so close to being the number one.

Paul Berende Eliminated in 2nd Place ($172,695)

Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Paul Berende 

We arguably got the two best players heads-up, but you have to feel so sorry for Paul Berende. He was one card away from being crowned a WPT Champion and the 8heart broke his heart. It took just a few orbits for Berende to finally succumb to the giant stack and this is how it happened.

Vladimir Bozinovic opens from the button, Paul Berende moves all-in and Bozinovic calls.

Showdown

Bozinovic: Aspade 9spade

Berende: Aclub 8club

Board: Qclub Theart 2heart 5diamond Adiamond

Vladimir Bozinovic is our new WPT Champion. Huge commiserations to Paul Berende who came so close but we are sure we will see him again soon.

Berende HAD One Hand on the Trophy

Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

WPT Baden HU 

Paul Berende has some body armour underneath that black sweatshirt, because he is taking some terrible body blows today. Earlier we saw him lose AK<AQ in a hand against Oswin Ziegelbecker, and we have just seen him lose in much worse circumstances, because he had one hand on the trophy at the time.

Vladimir Bozinovic opens the button, Paul Berende raises to 460,000, Bozinovic moves all-in and Berende calls.

Showdown

Bozinovic: Qspade Jspade
Berende: Aclub Qheart

Flop: Tspade 9diamond 2heart

“Nice sweat,” says Berende who has Bozinovic covered.

Turn: 5club

Nothing changes

River: 8heart

The crowd go wild, and to his credit, Berende just smiles and shakes his opponent’s hand, but that must have hurt. Bozinovic rivers his straight just like Ziegelbecker earlier today.

Berende ~ 1.3 million
Bozinovic ~ 6.3 million

Showdown

The flop of Aheart Qclub 7spade is met with stony silence. But the turn couldn’t have been any different. The dealer burns and turns the Tspade and the crowd go absolutely berserk. The river card is the 2heart and the celebrations continue. There is a big Serbian rail here. Ziegelbecker is out and we are now heads up and ready to crown a new WPT Champion.
