Darko Stojanovic Takes the Lead as Day 1b of the WPT Vienna Concludes
Posted by Tyler "pureonyx" Hancock 1 year, 5 weeks ago
When chips were bagged on Wednesday, marking the end of Day 1b of the World Poker Tour Vienna, Darko Stojanovic zipped up an impressive 320,000. Not only does that amount eclipse that of Day 1a leader, David Breitfuss, who finished with 185,500, but its over 100,000 more chips than his closest competitor, Carsten Jeppe, who bagged 206,400.
Stojanovic accumulated many of those chips in one of the last hands of the day while sending former WPT champ McKlean Karr to the rail. Karr had flopped the wheel holding 3c2c on a Ac-4x-5c flop. He barreled all three streets into Stojanovic who held Jc4c and made a better flush when a club fell on the river.
The bustout marked Karrs second of the tournament. The WPT Vienna is a re-entry tournament, and he had entered on day 1a and busted then as well. Other former WPT champs who made their exit on Day 1b include Scott Seiver, Mike Watson, Guillaume Darcourt and Sean Jazayeri.
