A total of 254 players (24 re-entries) entered the World Poker Tour Baden €3,300 Main Event. Yesterday the final six players returned to the Casino Baden to play down to a winner.

All eyes were, of course, on two-time WPT champ Marvin Rettenmaier, who had the chance to become the third player in history to win 3 WPT Main Events alongside Gus Hansen and Carlos Mortensen.

But Rettenmaier's dreams were crushed already during the 1st level of play (shortly after Grezergorz Wyraz had been eliminated in 6th place for $47,820)...

Marvin Rettenmaier moved all in from the small blind and Kimmo Kurko (Day 1A chip leader) called.

Rettenmaier: KHeartQSpade
Kurko: AClubQClub

The table ran out JDiamond7Diamond5Diamond10Diamond3Heart and Rettenmaier was sent packing in 5th place for $59,496.

Kurko got to join Rettenmaier (and Wyraz) on the rail shortly after. The Fin went all in pre-flop with AHeartJSpade and Serbia's Vladimir Bozinovic (Day 3 and Day 4 chip leader) called with KSpade9Club. The flop brought the KHeart and the turn and the river cards didn't help him either. Kurko received $81,034 for his 4th place finish.

Three-handed lasted for a while before it was time for the next elimination. Oswin Ziegelbecker moved all in after Bozinovic's raise on the button. Bozinovic asked for a count and decided to call.

Ziegelbecker: ASpadeKHeart
Bozinovic: AClub10Club

The dealer flipped over the first 3 cards: AHeartQClub7Spade and Ziegelbecker remained in front. The turn was the 10Spade and Bozinovic's fans on the rail went nuts. The river card was the 2Heart and Ziegelbecker was out of the tournament.

The poker gods continued to side with Bozinovic during heads up...

Paul Berende took down the first pot against Bozinovic and had a 600k lead. Berende's lead increased over the next few hands or so, and in fact, he was just 1 card away from taking down the whole thing.

Berende raised to 460,000 from the big blind and Bozinovic pushed his remaining stack to the centre of the table. Berende made the call.

Bozinovic: QSpadeJSpade
Berende: AClubQHeart

The flop gave Bozinovic an open-ended straight draw. "Nice sweat," said Berende before the dealer turned over a 5Club. Berende was just one card away from his first WPT title and a sweet $271,258 first prize, but the 8Heart on the river completed Bozinovic's straight and left him with only 1.3 million chips.

The tournament only lasted a few more hands after that pot. Bozinovic opened with ASpade9Spade and Berende moved all in with AClub8Club. Bozinovic called.

The board ran out QClub10Heart2Heart5DiamondADiamond and Berende finished second for $172,692 while Bozinovic laid hands on the title and the first place prize of $271,258, the largest tournament cash of his career!

Final table results:

1 Vladimir Bozinovic $271,258
2 Paul Berende $172,695
3 Oswin Ziegelbecker $111,587
4 Kimmo Kurko $81,034
5 Marvin Rettenmaier $59,496
6 Grzegorz Wyraz $47,820

It may have been the poker gods helping Bozinovic a little bit, but by the hands shown at the text, there was nothing helping, just facts showing that higher hands have more probability to win than lower hands.
