After four days of action and a slew of European talent shooting for success, it was a tournament virgin who finally took down GSOP Vienna this weekend.
Having welcomed 304 grinders to the felt late last week, the 1,000+100 event saw some familiar faces – such as Manig Loeser and Thomas Butzhammer – make it into the latter stages, but inexperience proved the key to success.While the likes of Bjorn Berner and Karel Kratochvil brought a wealth of live poker experience to the final table, Jouni Kallio had none.However, despite it being the Fin’s first live tournament, he put on a measured performance in the finale. Indeed, even when the blind levels were dropped to 15 minute intervals, he kept his nerve and managed to overcome Kratochvil in just a few hands.Kallio’s win has not only given him a perfect tournament record, but an extra 65,130 in his bankroll, plus the honour of being GSOP Vienna champion.GSOP Vienna Final Rankings:1st Jouni Kallio €65,1302nd Karel Kratochvil €41,9503rd Bjorn Berner €29,5404th Gabor Peteri €22,8705th Robert Gorodetsky €17,1606th Daniel Zhelev €13,340Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
