  • PokerStars ANZPT Queensland Won by Scott Kerr

    Monday, August 10th, 2009 by t2admin

PokerStars Australia New Zealand Poker Tour first season has come to an end with the Main Event concluding in the Queensland stop on the tour. The entire inaugural ANZPT was a great success and the last event had a good showing of players. It was Scott Kerr who managed to outlast the field and earn the first place title.

When final play began it would be down to eight players. Joel “StrongPlay” Dodds held the chip lead with 30% of the chips in play. Dodds would be followed closely by Scott “Punty” Smith and Phillip Willcocks who also had good chip counts.

Kerr would be down in chips but after a few battles and player eliminated Kerr would earn his share of the chips and face Phillip Willcocks in heads up play. Out of 249 players Kerr and Willcocks were the only two left. Willcocks from New Zealand and Kerr of Australia both qualified via PokerStars so it seemed fitting they would be fighting for the win.

When heads up play began Willcocks held a seven to two chip advantage which did not look good for Kerr. But after a few hands Kerr would gain the lead and make a move which proved to be the final hand. Willcocks went all in with Q-J of spades and Kerr would call with A-Q. Kerr held the better hand and was crowned the ANZPT Queensland Winner.

Scott Kerr will now join the list of other winners from the inaugural ANZPT. The Adelaide winner – Karl Krautschneider, the winner of the Sydney stop- Paren Arzoomanian, the Melbourne stop winner- Chris Levick and the winner of the Queenstown event- Danny Chevalier.
