Bosnia's Dejan Divkovic Wins ANZPT Perth For $114k

Bosnia's Dejan Divkovic Wins ANZPT Perth For $114kBosnian Dejan Divkovic has won the 2013 ANZPT Perth Main Event, after defeating a field of 214 players over four days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting the AU$114,000 first-place prize.
By the time the $2,200 buy-in tournament reached its final table of nine, Dejan Divkovic was the second biggest stack at the table. The Bosnian then scored his first elimination after being dealt 7-5 on the big blind and calling James Broom’s J-4 raise from the button. Unfortunately for Broom, the 3-4-J flop produced a 6 on the turn to complete Divkovic’s straight and soon after being check-raised all-in on the turn Broom soon found himself out in 7th place for $18,500. Dejan Divkovic (A-6) followed up by eliminating Colin Wilford (K-J) in 6th ($23,000).
With four-handed play then came the rise of Japan’s Iori Yogo, who in one hand was dealt pocket kings and found himself up against an all-in Philip Gidley-King holding Qd-4d on an 8s-Kd-5d flop. Despite an Ad falling on the turn, the 5s river made Iori a full-house and just like that Gidley-King was out in 4th for $32,800. Continuing his run, Iori Yogo (J-J) subsequently dispatched Australia’s last hope Dale Marsland (A-K) to the rail in 3rd ($41,000) to get the heads-up phase of the tournament underway.
However, Yogo (Q-10) proceeded to lose a massive pre-flop all-in pot against Divkovic (3-3) when the board rolled out J-K-3-K-Q, and soon after he found himself out holding 9-7 to his opponent’s pocket jacks. Iori Yogo then collected $72,000 for his runner-up finish, while Dejan Divkovic was crowned the 2013 ANZPT Perth champion.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1: Dejan Divkovic — $114,000
2: Iori Yogo  — $72,000
3: Dale Marsland —  $41,000
4: Philip Gidley-King — $32,800
5: David Evans — $27,300
6: Colin Wilford — $23,000
7: James Broom — $18,500
8: Luke Brabin — $14,200
9: David Fragomeni — $10,900
