Von Kriegenbergh wins WPT Seminole Hard Rock title

wpt 2011With perhaps the slowest final table structure in tournament poker, the World Poker Tour (WPT) is known for having some long sessions, wild chip-swings, and exciting action that can see a player go from short-stack, to chip-leader, and back again to short-stack before going on to win the tournament.

This rollercoaster ride is precisely what happened to Taylor von Kriegenbergh who took a massive chip-lead into the final table of the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, pumped it up even more early on, only to double-up two of his opponents soon thereafter and fall back to the middle of the pack, and finally go on to win the tournament.

After losing the chip-lead, Von Kriegenbergh then went on a massive heater that saw him accumulate virtually every chip at the table by the time he reached heads-up play against Curt Kohlberg with more than a 5-to-1 chip advantage.

One player who couldn’t get anything going at the final table was one of poker’s most polarizing players, Allen Bari, who in his usual way took to Twitter to sound off. Here is a look at two of Bari’s Tweet’s according to pokernewsdaily.com:

“5 handed with 2 nits a clown and a question mark.. Gonna try and grind it back from 1.3 mill.”

“Thank you all for the support.. Card dead for 6 hours watching morons smash buttons.. Gl Taylor, the rest can rot in hell..”

Here is a look at how the final six players fared in the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown:

1.    Taylor Von Kriegenbergh – $1,122,340
2.    Curt Kohlberg – $586,109
3.    Justin Zaki – $415,680
4.    Abbey Daniels – $286,819
5.    Allen Bari – $211,997
6.    Tommy Vedes – $166,272
