  1. [caption width="640"] Vlad Darie now has his name on the WPT Champions cup after emerging victorious in Vienna.[/caption] When the final table of the World Poker Tour Vienna stop got underway on Sunday evening, all eyes were on Dietrich Fast. The German poker pro was second in chips behind Zoltan Gal and looking for his second WPT title in a little over two weeks after taking down the L.A. Poker Classic. Fast’s run at that second title was cut short, though, as Vlad Darie went on to win WPT Vienna for his first WPT title and $192,496 after beating Gal in a nearly four-hour-long heads-up battle. The first elimination didn’t come for nearly 90 minutes. Darie opened for 60,000 from the button and Georgios Zisimopoulos moved all in from the small blind for 427,000. Darie called and showed [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"], while Zisimopoulos tabled [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"]. The board ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"] to eliminate Zisimopoulos in sixth place. On the very hext hand, Dominik Bosnjak called from UTG before Fast raised to 70,000 from the cutoff. The blinds both folded and Bosnjak moved all in for 354,000. Fast called and showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] and was racing against the [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"] of Bosnjak. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] flop put Fast in front and neither the [poker card="jd"] turn nor [poker card="5d"] river was able to save Bosnjak from a fifth place finish. Despite starting the day second in chips, Fast was unable to maintain the momentum, even after sending Bosnjak packing. With blinds at 20,000/40,000, Gal raised to 100,000 and Fast moved all in for 910,000. Gal called with [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"] and Fast tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="3c"][poker card="3h"] flop gave Fast a nut-flush draw, but the [poker card="js"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river failed to complete his hand and he was out in fourth place. Left with just over four big blinds, Matt Davenport raised all in to 175,000 from the button and both Darie and Gal defended their blinds. The board ran out [poker card="qs"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6h"] and Davenport showed [poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"], Gal showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"] for ace-high, but Darie flipped up [poker card="tc"][poker card="9c"] for a rivered straight to win the pot and eliminate Davenport. Even with Davenport’s chips now in his stack, Darie started heads-up play down 2-1 to Gal and quickly found himself in an even bigger hole, down nearly 3-1 after just five hands of play. The sixth hand, however, saw both players make a pair on a [poker card="th"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"] flop. Gal made two pair when the [poker card="3s"] fell on the turn and all the chips went in. Darie, who held [poker card="7s"][poker card="6h"], made a better two pair when the [poker card="6s"] hit the river and doubled into the chip lead. Even though the two players played another two-and-a-half hours, Gal never regained the lead. On the final hand of the tournament with blinds at 75,000/150,000, Darie moved all in from the button and Gal called. Gal was ahead with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2h"] against Darie’s [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"] flop changed everything, though, with Darie pairing his six. The [poker card="8h"] turn and [poker card="2c"] river did nothing for Gal and Darie eliminated him in second place to claim the title. The €3,300 buy-in event had 234 entrants for a €702,000 prizepool. The WPT now heads back to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida for three events including the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown and the WPT Tournament of Champions. Final Table Payouts Vlad Darie - $192,496 Zoltan Gal - $123,554 Matthew Davenport - $80,004 Dietrich Fast - $59,269 Dominik Bosnjak - $44,477 Georgios Zisimopoulos - $35,595
