The long-time poker pro and commentator provides a good show for fans
In an impressive run by poker pro Tony Dust on Wednesday morning, Event #21 $777 Six-Max NLHE at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Series has awarded him the second gold bracelet of his poker career. Dunst had an impressive performance during this online tournament by leaving behind a field of 1,361 entries and taking home the top prize of $168,342. All the way toward his victory, Dunst held the chip lead, except for a few moments during the whole tournament and, at the final table, he took care of sending home four of his final five opponents.
Dunst, who is also a World Poker Tour (WPT) commentator, won another WSOP gold bracelet from winning a $1,000 NLHE event. His final run, once he got to the final table, started with the elimination of Jon Tuner, who was the first one hitting the rails as he finished sixth.
Following this bust and only two minutes later, Dunst was already sending home his next victim, pro player Krista ‘Pollux’ Gifford, who moved all-in from the button and lost against Dunst to finish fifth. After 15 minutes, the game of four moved to three after “ilosestackz” was eliminated by “paymycollege” to finish in fourth place.
Thereafter, Dunst was on a mission to continue as the table captain, and it took him 15 minutes to take down the third place and reach the final heads-up. Alec ‘Tango_Bravo’ Parslow finished third and, after Dunst collected this pot, he was already holding 65% of the total chips in play. However, paymycollege put up a good fight and even took a slight chip lead before losing half of his stack in an unfortunate hand where Dunst got a flush. From there, it was all downhill for the second-place finisher.
