STAR POKER: Brett’s winning bet in Sydney Champs Bounty Event

Brett Owen was the last man standing in the $550 No Limit Hold’em Bounty Event to become the latest winner on the Sydney Champs schedule for 2012 at The Star.

The field of 112 players generated a prizepool of $44,800 with an additional $11,200 up for grabs in bounties with the top 12 players earning a slice of the pie.

Owen took home $12,320 for his victory after defeating Matthew Pongrass heads-up. William Skountos matched his finish of third in the NLHE Six-handed event at last December’s Star Poker Summer Series while Shivan Abdine made it two final tables in two starts, adding a seventh-place here to his fourth in the Opening Event.

Action continued at The Star today with the $550 NLHE Six-handed Event while players have just taken to the felt for the $440 NLHE Teams Event.
