WPT Vienna 2011 Won By Dmitry Gromov

Dmitry Gromov has triumphed at the WPT Vienna, after overcoming a field of 555 players over five days to claim the title, as well as collect the €447,840 ($630,450) first place prize.
After the first two starting days of the €3,500 buy-in tournament were completed, 260 players returned to battle it out on Day 2 with just 35 players making it through to Day 3. The field was then further whittled down to just eight players who subsequently took their places at the final table the following day.
Russian player Dmitry Gromov held the chip lead going into the final table and was also responsible for eliminating the first two players from the table.
First, Markus Jenisch was all-in holding pocket queens but Gromov with pocket nines hit another nine on the flop to dispatch Jenisch in 8th for €36,180. Next, Gromov with A-10 then out-flopped a short-stacked Alessio Isaia holding pocket fours to eliminate the Italian in 7th (€49,100).
Simon Ravnsbaek with Ac-Kc then dispatched the last remaining Austrian Maximillian Noll from the competition (A-J) in 6th (€65,460), before Romanian Valentin Stroiescu then hit the rail in 5th (€83,550),.
Italian Mario Adinolfi then found himself out in 4th (€115,420), after shoving with  A-7 into Dmitry Gromov’s A-J, before Gromov with pocket sixes then took care of Simon Ravnsbaek with A-J in 3rd (€169,690) to get the heads-up phase of the tournament underway.
However, eight hands was all that was needed to decide the winner with the decisive hand being played after Gromov was dealt A-10 to his fellow Russian Maxim Kosolov’s pocket eights.
A 10 on the flop was all that was needed to seal Kosolov’s tournament fate, who then collected €241,180 for his runner-up finish, while Dmitry Gromov was crowned the 2011 WPT Vienna Champion. As well as the €447,840 first place prize money, Gromov was lso awarded a $25,000 seat to the WPT World Championship.
