"Tony Dunst Making His Mark in Las Vegas"
August 06, 2008

The focus of world poker is squarely on Las Vegas with the World Series Of Poker the main attraction, and it’s great to see a number of Australians flying the flag with great distinction. However – the World Series is not the only way to land a big tournament result – as the following players will no doubt attest to. Tony Dunst, known online as Bond18 and LuckyTonyD, recently took home the biggest win of his career at the Bellagio Cup, winning Event 2 and $193,720. One of the most entertaining poker writers on the circuit, he will surely have plenty to write about as he outlasted 165 entrants to take the crown in the $3,000 No Limit Holdem event. A favourite of the PokerNetwork noticeboard, Tony has long threatened to leave his mark in tournament poker, and has added this win to a recent WSOP final table finish as he starts to achieve the results many have believed were coming to him. Tony is just one of many great players who can be expected to grace the felt at the upcoming Victorian Poker Championships. Dunst wasn’t the only one Aussie at that particular final table – Perth resident Kent Hunter also put in a good showing, taking home 7th place and $11,365 for his efforts. Earlier in June at Caesars, Michael Chrisanthopoulos showed why he is currently ranked 3rd on this year’s PokerNetwork Leader Board with an excellent showing by taking 2nd place in Event 8 of the Mega Stack Series. Doing battle in a 497-strong field, Michael took home $23,285 for his runner-up finish. Chrisanthopoulos also continued on at the World Series, adding a $6,000 cash to his resume in the typically competitive 6 max No Limit Holdem event. Hot showings by our Aussie players aren’t restricted to live play either! Jonathon “xMONSTERxDONGx” Karamalikis has continued on from his impressive showing in the Melbourne Poker Championships with a crazy run online in late June. Karamalikis took down nearly $50,000 within the space of a week by taking down some of the toughest tournaments you will encounter online. $17,000 in the $109 rebuy on PokerStars was followed by a $26,000 score in the $40,000 Guarantee on Full Tilt the very next day! Add that to a $5,000 score in the Ultimate Bet $20,000 Guaranteed the week before and it caps a mighty impressive week for the young Australian. And young he is indeed – still only 19, Karamalikis will still have to wait another couple of years for his crack at the big dance in Vegas!
