The 4 best poker players for the Casinos Austria ranking have been determined:-
Ivo Donev (A) followed by Sebastian Behrend (Ger), Sigfried Rath (A) and Andreas Krause (Ger).
It was a strong finish by the German speaking countries as Austria and Germany have two players among the top 4.
First place went to Ivo Donev. With 15 finishes in the points as well as a victory and a second place in August's Bodensee Championship he could scoop the title.
Sebastian Behrend came in second. His performances improved subsequently during the year and especially within the last few weeks of 2007. He went deep in the tournaments of Salzburg, Bregenz and Seefeld and with 15 points-finishes, he was able to get ahead of Siegfried Rath.
