Poker Network is pleased to announce the Players of The Month for July

July was another incredible month for Australian poker. We saw some great results from Australians at the main event at the World Series of Poker, as well as events on the Las Vegas circuit. In July we also recognize the consistent online achievements of our emerging young guns.

Player of the Month – Tony Dunst

An adopted Australian and long time PokerNetworker, Tony “LuckyTonyD” Dunst receives recognition for his incredible achievements on the world poker stage, both live in Las Vegas, as well as the online poker scene.

After four WSOP cashes including a final table result in Event #29 for over US$54,000, Tony followed up this form by outlasting 165 entrants to take out the $3,000 Bellagio Cup IV event collecting over US$190,000.

Tony has also been tearing up the online poker scene for a long time as “Bond18” with consistent tournament results seeing him highly ranked in PocketFives’ database. These results include a $12,000 win on Full Tilt on July 13th and a $6,000 win on Ultimate Bet on July 7th.

Young Gun of the Month – Jonathan Karamalikis

At only 20 years of age, Jonathan “xMONSTERxDONGx” Karamalikis has already established himself as one of the emerging poker talents in Australia.

In late June “xMONSTERxDONGx” had a massive week picking up nearly $50,000 in online tournament results. A $17,000 win in the $109 Rebuy on PokerStars was followed by a $27,000 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 was a very profitable period for the young Australian!

Karamalikis has continued his impressive form into July with another final table for over $4,000 in the PokerStars $109 Rebuy and a win in the $33,000 Guarantee at Full Tilt on 27th July for another $21,000 score.

A player with tremendous potential, Karamalikis is a player to watch in the future as he turns his consistent online talents to the live poker circuit in Australia and abroad.

Congratulations to both Tony and Jonathan!
