Darko Stojanovic Wins France's First 2013 WSOPE Bracelet

Darko Stojanovic Wins France's First 2013 WSOPE BraceletDarko Stojanovic has just picked-up  France’s first gold bracelet at this year’s World Series of Poker Europe, after defeating a field of 140 players over three days at Event #3: €5,300 Mixed Max, to capture the title, and collect the €188,160 ($256,274) first place prize.
The WSOPE Mixed Max event was held at the Casino Barrière de Enghien, near Paris, and attracted a good-sized field to create a prize pool worth €672,000. Amongst the big names cashing in at the tournament was James Dempsey in 11th (€14,905), Phil Ivey in 10th (€14,905), Shannon Shorr in 5th (€30,695), and Noah Schwartz in 4th (€62,770).
Darko Stojanovic would then play heads-up against US pro Dan O’Brien, who at this stage held a 3 to 1 chip advantage over his French opponent. On the second hand of their match (Hand #2), however, Stojanovic (3-2) went all-in on an 8-4-3-2 board and was called by O’Brien with pocket sevens. The 2 on the river subsequently completed Stojanovic’s full-house to even out the chip counts.
It wasn’t then until Hand #53 that the defining hand was played with Stojanovic (7-7) and O’Brien (Ah-5h) all-in on a Qh-6h-4c flop. The turn and river subsequently produced a Js and 8d to consign Dan O’Brien to a runner-up finish worth €116,280, while Darko Stojanovic was crowned the 2013 WSOPE €5,300 Mixed Max Event champion.
