After four days of poker, a winner has been crowned in the 2013 PokerStars.net ANZPT Season 5 Sydney Main Event. The tournament started with 460 runners, and 22 returned for the final day of play. A grueling 13-hour day would see the field dwindled down to just one, as Dinesh Alt would become the next champion on the ANZPT.

Alt overcame all odds to finish as the champion and collect AUD$226,300 for his efforts. He had to outlast a field of notable players including Trung Tran, Amanda De Cesare, Sam Khouiss, Iori Yogo, Ben Gilholme, Dan Kelly, Gary Benson and finally Dejan Divkovic.

Most of the talk, however, would be about Divkovic who finished second behind Alt. He’ll always be remembered as the guy who almost won back-to-back ANZPT titles. He is now a clear frontrunner to take the ANZPT Player of the Year title.
