Sean Drake Wins WPTDS Reno ($56,581)

Sean Drake topped a field of 251 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Reno Main Event on Monday night at the beautiful Atlantis Casino Resort Spa here in Reno, Nevada. Drake was awarded $56,581 in prize money, a $3,000 Championship package, and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just under 5 hours of play today.

Coming into the day it was Hank Czarnecki with the chip lead, and Czarnecki continued to climb as he built his stack to nearly two million through the eliminations of Billy Wilson (9th), Bill Watchmen(8th), and Babe Prescott (7th). Following Prescott’s elimination it was Sean Drake who started to gain momentum, taking a few pots off Czarnecki. After the exit of Jose Rodriguez in 6th, it was Czarnecki hitting the rail in 5th. Kenny Mills would be our fourth place finisher, leaving us three handed between Mike Harvey, Wesley Hickey, and Sean Drake.

Three handed play saw a ton of chips splashing around the table, but eventually it would be Wesley Hickey exiting in 3rd, when his ace-eight, couldn’t best the pocket nines of Harvey. The hand would leave Harvey with an over 2-1 chip lead heading into heads up play.

The lead wouldn’t last long though as Drake won a flip when his deuces held all in pre flop, against the ace-nine of Harvey. The double up would put the two nearly identical in chips until a big flip would see Drake take a massive chip lead. The two got into a 6,000,000 chip pot when Drake’s ace-jack bested the pocket tens of Harvey, leaving Harvey with just one big blind. Drake would wake up with two queens the next hand to put the dagger in Harvey, eliminating him from the tournament. Harvey takes home $39,702 for his deep run here at Atlantis and Sean Drake is the newest WPTDS Champion!

 

Mitchell Heidt Wins DSPT Edmonton Main Event! ($100,000)

 

Mitchell Heidt topped a field of 511 players to win the DSPT Edmonton Main Event on Monday night at the Casino Yellowhead here in Edmonton. Heidt was awarded $100,000 in prize money and the DSPT championship package, along with the DSPT Trophy. Action started at the final table relatively slow, but following the 9th place elimination of Tony Hoang, action picked up and a flurry of eliminations quickly followed.

Season 1 DSPT Player of the Year, Ryan Smith, was also in contention for the title. Smith was battling for the Series Champion title as well, but he would need 5th or better to take home the Series Champion trophy. Unfortunately for Smith, the run would come to an end in 8th place when his A♥7♥ couldn’t track down the A♦J♦ of Ed Sikorski. Following Smith it was Sikorsky(7th), Doug James (6th), Jimmy Lee(5th), and Jasdeep Manhas.

Three handed play started with Bahman Ataeianfar holding a chip lead, but after a massive pot between Ataeianfar and Heidt, the momentum shifted completely into Heidt’s favor. The double up for Heidt would leave Ataeianfar crippled, and he was eliminated a few hands later.

The exit of Ataeianfar would leave Heidt and Louie heads up, with Heidt holding a 3-1 chip lead. The lead would be too much for Louie to overcome and Mitchell Heidt is the newest DSPT Edmonton Champion!

 

 

Jasthi Kumar Wins WPTDS Thunder Valley ($80,840)

 

Jasthi Kumar topped a field of 400 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Thunder Valley Main Event on Monday night at the beautiful Thunder Valley Resort Casino. Kumar was awarded $80,840 in prize money, a $3,000 Championship package, and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just under 5 hours of play today.

The action was slow to start the day, as it took nearly an hour and half before the first elimination occurred. Jimmy Zeldon was the first out the door, after Eugene Schwartz hit running cards to make trips and earn the elimination. After Zeldon it was Schwartz hitting the rail in 8th. Robert Pacleb was out in 7th, in a hand that propelled Theo Tran into the chip lead. David Forster followed Pacleb out the door as he finished in 6th at the hands of Jimmy Gorham. Gorham continued to chip up following the hand, as he found himself battling with Tran atop the leaderboard. Our last lady standing, Larissa Bushman, hit the rail in 4th, followed shortly thereafter by the start of the day chip leader, Adam Curchack.

Three handed play saw a ton of chips splashing around the table, but eventually it was Theo Tran exiting in third when his AcTd was run down by the Ad2s of Jasthi Kumar. The hand left Kumar and Gorham with nearly identical stacks heading into heads up play.

The two battled it our for nearly two levels, with majority of the pots ending in pre flop raises, but Kumar slowly started to chip away at Gorham. After gaining a slight advantage in chips, the two collided in one final hand. Gorham flopped bottom two pair while Kumar turned top pair with top kicker. All of the money went in on the turn and Gorham looked poised to double. Unfortunately for Gorham, the board paired on the river to give Kumar a larger two pair and the best hand. Gorham was denied the title of first two-time WPTDS champion and Kumar earned the trophy, the money, and the Championship package!

 

 

Mikhail Zdanovskiy Wins WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville ($106,780)

Mikhail Zdanovskiy topped a field of 386 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville Main Event on Monday night at the bestbet here in Jacksonville. Zdanovskiy was awarded $106,780 in prize money, a $3,000 Championship package, and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just over 5 hours of play today.

Coming into the day, the expectations were high as a bunch of seasoned pros headlined the table. There was also an opportunity for history here in Jacksonville as both Michael Mizrachi, and last year’s champion, George Wolfe, were trying to become the first two time WTPDS Champion. Wolfe’s dreams were cut short when he exited in 9th, and he was followed out the door by Jonathan Hilton in 8th. Coming into the day Michael Mizrachi was certainly the most notable player at the final table, but after a series of unfortunate hands Mizrachi was left wondering what could have been as he exited the tournament area in 7th. Brian Hawkins and Austin Peck hit the rail next in 6th & 5th, leaving us five handed.

Early on in five handed play it appeared as if David Tuthill started to gain momentum, and he was set to double up in a huge spot when he got his AcAh all in pre-flop against the KcKs of his buddy Timothy Miles. The flop was clean, but a king on the turn would end Tuthill’s run in a brutal way. Miles would follow Tuthill out the door, as he finished in third.

Heading into heads up play it was Corey Major who had all the momentum. A huge rail, and a two-to-one chip lead seemed as if it was going to carry Major to the top, but after the first hand it was Mikhail Zdanovskiy who started to gain traction, as he took his turn with a two-to-one chip lead. Zdanovskiy continued to climb before eventually waking up with ace-jack, and getting all the chips in the middle on an ace high board, against Major’s middle pair. The runout was clean and Zdanovskiy was awarded the trophy, $106,780, and the WPTDS trophy!

 

 

Steve Tada Wins WPTDeepStacks Central California Main Event (2)

 

Steve Tada (pictured above with friends) topped a field of 208 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Central California Main Event on Sunday night at the Turlock Poker Room in Turlock, California. Tada was awarded $36,129 in prize money, the WPTDeepStacks trophy, and a $3,000 Championship package after winning a final day that clocked in at 10 hours of play.

Action was accelerated when the final three players decided to a three-way chip chop that gave Steve Tada $36,129, Mark Johnson $36,067, and Tim Weimer $29,638. They played it out for the trophy, remaining WPTDS Player of the Year points, and the $3,000 Championship package.

The final three players traded chips for a little bit after that, but then two quick hands brought the night to an end. Weimer fell with pocket fours when Tada spiked a flush on the river after the money went in preflop. On the first hand of heads-up play the money went all in on a flop reading Ks5c3h. Johnson held 9s6c and Tada was ahead with Kc4s. The turn and river fell 3sQs and that gave Tada the WPTDeepStacks title. Congratulations to our new champion – Steve Tada!

 

 

 

 

Anthony Astarita Wins WPTDS Tampa Main Event

 

Anthony Astarita (pictured) topped a field of 538 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Tampa Main Event on Monday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa, Florida. Astarita was awarded $130,541 in prize money, the WPTDeepStacks trophy, a custom guitar trophy from the Seminole Hard Rock, and a $3,000 Championship prize package after winning a final day that clocked in at just over four hours of play.

There were some interesting storylines in play today with poker tournament veteran Sam Grizzle, 18-year-old Cody Sullivan, previous WPTDS Jacksonville champion George Wolfe, and recent WPTDS final-table contestant Mario Lopez all in the mix at the final table. In the end it came down to a very lopsided battle between Wolfe and Anthony Astarita.

Wolfe barely had half a big blind to his name when heads-up play began. It only took two hands to decide the final battle. Wolfe survived on a chopped pot on the first hand of heads-up play, and the chips went into the middle again the very next hand. Wolfe held 6c4h, but Astarita woke up with Ah5d. An ace fell on the flop for Astarita, and there was no more help to be found for Wolfe, who has an impressive run of final-table appearances at WPTDS stops held in Florida. But to the victor go the spoils, so congratulations to our new champion – Anthony Astarita!

 

 

 

Jerry Morrell Wins WPTDS Reno Main Event ($55,616)

 

Jerry Morrell topped a field of 268 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Reno Main Event on Monday afternoon at the beautiful Atlantis Casino Resort Spa here in Reno, Nevada. Morrell was awarded $55,616 in prize money, a $3,000 Championship package, and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just under 4 hours of play today.

Coming into the day it was Jerry Morrell with the chip lead, and Morrell continued to climb as he built his with no major setbacks throughout the day. With multiple short stacks coming into the day, it wasn’t long before we lost Greg Wagner, who was quickly followed out the door by Shawn Roberts. Following the two eliminations in the first level of the day, it was Steve Kujubu exiting in 7th. Six handed play wouldn’t slow down Morrell, as his AcJd would best the AsTs of Josef Bautista, sending Bautista packing in 6th.

Chris Bridgford would be the shortest of the remaining five players, but after a quick double up he would manage to ladder to a top four spot when Mans Montgomery was eliminated by Anthony Scherer in 5th. Bridgford would exit soon thereafter, and Morrell headed into three-handed play with a 4-1 chip lead over both Scherer, and Worland.
The trend of fast action didn’t change with three handed play, as Scherer ran his queens into Morrell’s aces almost immediately. Unable to improve, Scherer hit the rail in third leaving Morrell and Worland heads up.

Similar to last year’s dynamic between Dustin Fox and Ivan Holmes, the two players left in the tournament are close friends. Worland would secure a double up on the second hand of play, closing in on the monster chip lead of Morrell. The two spent a while exchanging chips back and forth, but eventually Morrell’s run good would continue as he woke up with QcQs after Worland moved all in holding AdKc. Morrell won the flip, earning himself the top spot as the newest WPTDS Champion, taking home $55,616.

 

 

 

Nathan Papp Wins WPTDS Immokalee Main Event

 

Nathan Papp (pictured) topped a field of 257 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Immokalee Main Event on Sunday night at the Seminole Casino Hotel in Southwest Florida. Papp was awarded $68,959 in prize money after winning a final day that clocked in at 11 hours of play.

The returning field of 50 players got down to the final table by 8 pm, and then the action was fast thanks to a double elimination hand that took out Rosario Simone (ninth) and former November Niner William Tonking (eighth). Randy Spain fell in seventh the very next hand, and a few hands later Stever Karp was knocked out in sixth. There was a series of double ups that took place over the next hour and then Steve Trizis fell in fifth. Manelic Manaya (fourth) and Jeff Pringle (third) went out next to give us a heads-up final between Trent Baker and chip leader Nathan Papp.

Baker was able to double up once, but the next time he was all in he wasn’t so lucky. Baker held 6d5d in the hole on the final hand, and Papp had him covered holding Ac9c. The board was dealt 8h7h7dKsJs and Baker was out in second. Papp took home $68,959 in prize money along with a $3,000 Championship package. He also received a WPTDS trophy and a $5,000 seat in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event next August provided by the Seminole Hard Rock on top of the prize pool. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS champion – Nathan Papp!

 

 

 

 

Jim Rankin Wins WPTDeepStacks Arizona

Jim Rankin (pictured) topped a field of 286 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Arizona Main Event on Monday night at the Casino Del Sol Resort in Tucson, Arizona. Rankin was awarded $37,346 in prize money after winning a final table that clocked in at six hours of play.

Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and after a series of double ups Juan Sosa kicked off the eliminations by falling in ninth place. Luke Saltus followed Sosa to the rail in eighth place just five minutes later. There were four double ups after that before the chip leader at the start of day, Chuck Weaver, was eliminated in seventh place. Jim Rankin then doubled through Thomas Zanot, and that led to Zanot’s demise in sixth place.

The final five players decided to chop up the remaining prize pool, but they would still play it out for $10,000 and the $3,000 Championship Package for the winner. The eliminations moved swiftly after that, with Chad Mizner (fifth place), Ajay Gnanasambanthan (fourth place), and Sean Berrios (third place) falling in succession to take us down to a heads-up final between Jim Rankin and Balram Bhandari.

Rankin and Bhandari decided to chop up the remaining $10,000 before the start of heads-up play, and after playing for a level they were pretty much even. At that point Bhandari and Rankin struck a deal where Bhandari would receive the $3,000 Championship Package in exchange for $1,000 of his cash going to Rankin.

The two players then shoved all in blind preflop with Bhandari holding 6s3c and Rankin revealing 3h2c. The board ran out 7d3d2d8sQs and that gave Rankin the victory. Rankin took home $37,346 in prize money along with the WPTDS trophy. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS champion – Jim Rankin!

 

 

Jeff Fielder Wins WPTDS Iowa ($32,473)

Jeff Fielder (pictured) topped a field of 127 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Iowa Main Event on Monday night at the Riverside Casino & Golf Resort in Riverside, IA. Fielder was awarded $32,473 in prize money after winning a final table that clocked in at six hours of play.

Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and after a quick few hands, Todd Hagen kicked off the eliminations by falling in ninth place. Mark Reid followed Hagen to the rail in eighth place, nearly half a level later. Chips starting flying around the table, as a Derek Gardner did his best to hang on with the short stack, but he would eventually fall in seventh. Following Gardner’s Elimination it was Garry Glawe who ran his suited ace into the queens of Jeff Fielder that would lead to his elimination, as Glawe exited in sixth.

Five handed play wouldn’t last too long, as Brett Reicher was eliminated shortly after Glawe when he moved all in with his lat 145,000. Both Fielder and Lang would call, with Lang making a flush on the river to eliminate Reicher in fifth. Four handed play started with a big pot that saw the two chip leaders go head to head, with Lang coming out on top and taking over the chip lead from Fielder. The two continued to exchange blows as the shorter-stacked Austin Hohenadel and Bryan Besler sat back and waited for their opportunity to strike. Action folded around to Hohenadel who moved all in holding pocket threes, but ran into the two kings of Besler. Besler flopped a king leaving Hohenadel drawing thin, and exiting in fourth.

Three handed play started off pretty slow with Fielder slowly climbing back towards the top of the chip counts. Bresler got the last of his chips into middle holding 6x6x against the 2x2x of Feilder. The flop would bring a deuce, improving Fielder to a set, and giving him a commanding lead on the hand. Bresler failed to catch a six and hit the rail in third place.

Heads up play it was all Jeff Fielder as he continued to build moment. On the final hand Mike Lang raises to 160,000 and Jeff Fielder reraises to 360,000. With the action back on Lang he tanks for nearly three minutes before moving all in for 675,000. Fielder makes the call and tables As5s, having the 5d4c of Lang in rough shape. The dealer spreads the Jd8c4s flop and Lang pairs his four to take the lead. The turn brings the Ts and Fielder picks up the nut flush draw to go along with his live ace. The Ks completes the board improving Fielder to the nut flush, to earn him the victory and $32,473.

 

 

 

Cody Fleming Wins DSPT Edmonton ($85,475)

Cody Fleming (pictured) topped a field of 451 players to win the DSPT Edmonton Main Event on Monday night at the Yellowhead Casino. Fleming was awarded $85,475 in prize money, a trophy, and the $3,000 DSPT Championship package after winning a final table that clocked in at just over five hours of play.

Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and shortly there after it was Jerome Makonen exiting in 9th. The fast pace would be a continuous trend at this final table, as the eliminations continued to come in flurries. Following Mokenen in 9th it was Kris Klimosko exiting in 8th and Aaron Haw in 7th. Ramesh Puradchithasan was the next out the door in sixth, and Cody Fleming headed into five handed play with a massive chip lead, after a big hand that resulted in him doubling thru Jerry Tria.

Five handed play wouldn’t last too long, as beginning of the day chip leader, Jerry Tria, was eliminated when his top pair ran into the trips of Paul Sokoloff. Four handed play saw the momentum begin to shift in favor of Paul Griffin, as the short stack starting closing the gap between himself and Fleming. Eventually it was Issa Moustapha falling in fourth when he moved all in holding two fours, and ran into the jacks of Fleming.

Before the start of three-handed play, the players discussed a potential chop, but it was eventually turned down by Cody Fleming who held a massive chip lead at the time. Paul Sokoloff would draw first blood as he doubled thru Fleming, winning a flip when his A♣5♣ improved to a flush against the 2♥2♦ of Fleming. Pace of play would take a dramatic hault as the three exchanged chips back and forth for a few orbits with preflop raises. Sokoloff ended up running his sevens into the kings of Fleming, and Sokoloff hit the rail in 3rd place.

Sokoloff’s bustout propelled Fleming into heads up play with nearly a 5-1 chip lead, but the tournament was far from over. Peter Griffin continued to fight back, nearly taking over the chip lead, but the constant pressure of Fleming was too much for Griffin to overcome. On the final hand Fleming called the all in of Griffin holding A♦7♦, but a huge dog to Griffin’s A♣K♠. Fleming flopped two diamonds, and rivered a third to improve to a flush. He jumped into the arms of his rail as they all celebrated and Cody Fleming is your newest DSPT Champion!

 

 

 

 

Eric Bohl Wins the WPTDeepStacks San Diego Main Event

Eric Bohl (pictured) topped a field of 378 players to win the WPTDeepStacks San Diego Main Event on Monday night at the Ocean’s Eleven Casino in Oceanside, California. Bohl was awarded $75,675 in prize money and a $3,000 Championship Package after winning a final table that clocked in at six hours of play.

Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and a long, slow stretch of play took place to kick things off. Nick Toma fell in ninth place and Nathan Schmidt busted in eighth place, but there were still seven players remaining after three hours of play. Craig Chait was the next to fall in seventh place, and then the rising blinds and antes really started to force the action. David Luttberg busted in sixth place, Atta Afzal fell in fifth place, Rod Jahanguiri hit the rail in fourth place, and Chris Brewer was knocked out in third place in the span of an hour.

Lena Evans took the chip lead into the heads-up final against Eric Bohl, but Bohl doubled up to bring things close to even. Bohl took a slight lead before the next all-in confrontation, so he had Evans covered when she shoved with As3d. Bohl revealed AdJc and the board was dealt QsJsTs7h8d Bohl took home $75,675 in prize money along with the WPTDS trophy. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS champion – Eric Bohl!

 

 

Reginald Roberts Wins WPTDeepStacks Oklahoma Main Event

Reginald Roberts (pictured) topped a field of 165 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Oklahoma Main Event on Monday night at the Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma. Roberts was awarded $50,765 in prize money and a $3,000 Championship Package after winning a very quick final table that clocked in at just over two hours of play.

Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and action was fast and furious to kick things off at the final table. Eric Thompson fell in ninth place on the first hand of play, and Rodney Spriggs followed him to the rail in eighth place on the very next hand. Chris Battaglia fell shortly after that in seventh, and Jerad Jameson and Brian Dewey each doubled up before Jameson fell in sixth place. Jesse Jones busted in fifth place before John Lopez scored the next double up. Dewey then fell in fourth place and Lopez was out in third place to take us down to a heads-up final in just two hours.

Daniel Lowery took the chip lead into the heads-up final against Reginald Roberts, but Roberts took the lead before the two players took a scheduled break. On the first hand coming back from the break, Lowery got all of his chips into the middle preflop holding AdKc. Roberts had him covered with pocket nines in the hole, and the board brought no help for Lowery. Roberts won the tournament and took home $50,765 in prize money along with the WPTDS trophy. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS champion – Reginald Roberts!

 

 

 

 

Duff Charette Wins Season 3 DSPT Championship ($284,095)

 

Play has officially concluded here in the Season 3 DSPT Championship and at the end of play it is Duff Charette taking home the title!
Charette takes home $284,095, the DSPT trophy, and an $1,100 seat into the $1,000,000 DSPT guarantee at Seminole Hard Rock in January.

Coming into the day it was Kristen Bicknell holding the chip lead, of which she managed to uphold throughout the duration of the day. 27 players returned to start the day, and after a flurry of eliminations it was Bicknell holding the chip lead heading into the final table. Season 3 DSPT Calgary Champion, Sam Ngai, was the first to hit the rail as he was eliminated in 9th place. Ngai was followed out the door shortly there after by Damian Minev in 8th, and Tosha Beaudry in 7th. Tom Lee came into the final table as the shortest stack, but managed to ladder all the way into 6th, eventually earning $57,420.

Five handed play would last for a while, as the chip lead was passed back and forth between the players, with Peter Chien eventually being the next casualty to fall. With Chien’s 5th place elimination, it was Kristen Bicknell regaining the chip lead for four-handed play. For Balram Bhandari there was more on the line than just the title, as he would need to finish in the top three in order to take home the Season 3 Player of the Year title. Bhandari watched in anticipation as Tyler Bonkowski called all in holding 7♠7♥ against the 4♣4♦ of Bicknell. Unfortunately for Bonkowski, Bicknell would flop a set and eliminate him from play. The elimination locked up the player of the year title for Bhandari, and left him in a great spot for three handed play.

Duff Charette was the smallest of the three stacks when play continued, but would chip up in a number of small pots. Eventually it was Charette winning a flip to double through Bicknell and cripple her. The next hand Charette would take the last of Bicknell’s chips, eliminating her in third place for $128,425.

Heading into heads up play Bhandari held the chip lead, as he sat with 13,000,000 opposed to Charette’s 8,000,000. Bhandari seemed to be pulling away as play started, but the tides would soon turn as a massive hand broke out between the two. Charette raises to 700,000 and Balram Bhandari moves all in covering Charette, who has 8,975,000. Charette calls.

Bhandari: A♥4♥
Charette: A♣Q♥

The dealer spreads a flop of 2♥5♥10♠ and Bhandari picks up both straight and flush draws. The turn brings the J♣ and Charette will need to fade the river to earn a massive double up.

The 2♦ completes the board and Charette’s rail erupts as he rakes in the pot and takes the chip lead. The swing in momentum would provide to be too much for Bhandari overcome, and shortly there after would get in the last of his chips holding K♣6♠ against the A♣K♠ of Charette. The board would run out clean for Charette and he is your newest DSPT Champion, taking home $284,095!

Graffeo was awarded $290,687 in prize money after winning a quick final table that clocked in at just over three hours of play.

Cards got into the air at Noon between the final nine players, and the early stretch of play was rough for some of the big names.

Jimmy Poper Comes Out On Top Of Stacked Final Table To Take Home WPTDeepStacks Big Stax XX Title

 

The 2017 WPTDeepStacks Big Stax XX event brought tons of talent out to the Philadelphia area. With lots of players traveling in from all over the country, it was a local talent who came out on top.

Jimmy Poper topped a field of 660 entries to win $201,991 after a nearly 16-hour final day. The Pottstown, PA native plays at Parx Casino several times a week and also earned a $3,000 package into the WPTDeepStacks Championship event at Thunder Valley at the end of the year.

Poper showed his chops at the final table after having to navigate a final table that was filled with poker pros. Of the final four players remaining, Poper was forced to navigate through four well-known pros in Phil Hui, Justin Liberto, and runner-up DJ MacKinnon.

As play got short, MacKinnon held most of the chips in play, but Poper was able to win a flip and double through MacKinnon to contend for the chip lead with three players remaining. After MacKinnon eliminated Liberto in third place, it was Poper and MacKinnon heads-up for all the marbles.

They started out even in chips, but Poper got all in preflop with pocket aces against MacKinnon’s pocket fives. MacKinnon turned a five, but Poper rivered an ace to make a bigger set and put himself firmly in control of the heads-up match.

Poper finished him off shortly after and secured the title.

 

 

 

 

 

Jeremy Meacham Goes Wire to Wire to Win WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville ($114,551)

 

Play has officially ended here at the WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville Main Event and the Day 1A chipleader, Jeremy Meacham, goes wire to wire to take home the title!

Coming into the day, Meacham was smack in the middle of the pack. Upon play starting, Meacham was nowhere to be found, and actually didn’t arrive until halfway thru the first level of play. The late start certainly didn’t effect Meacham as his calm demeanor carried him throughout the final table and eventually to the trophy.

Play started off fast and furious as Marie Harrell was eliminated on one of the first hands of play, when her AcQs ran into the KcKs of Corey Bierria. Following Harrell, it was Corey Thompson losing a flip to Richard McCrary and hitting the rail in 8th place. McCrary would continue to gain momentum and took over the chip lead before alternating the top spot with Corey Bierria. Bierria regained the lead when he eliminated Nick Gee in 7th place, but McCrary clawed his way right back to the top after eliminating Kenneth Williams in 6th.

During 5 handed play Meacham dipped to the lowest point of his final table run, but chipped back up and eliminated Michael Murphy in 5th. A few hands later Meacham earned a huge double, when he picked up AhAs against the Jc7c of McCrary. The double catapulted Meacham back into the lead, and it was smooth sailing from there. McCrary was the next out the door in 4th, followed shortly there after by Corey Bierria in 3rd.

Heading into heads up play, Meacham help nearly a 4-1 chip lead and quickly found himself playing for the title. Meacham’s 4d4s was up against Trey Walton’s KsQd, and after a clean runout Meacham takes home his biggest career cash of $114,551. Along with the money, Meacham also earns a WPTDS Trophy and the $3,000 WPTDS Championship package.

 

 

 

Josh Wallace Wins DSPT Calgary Main Event ($81,861)

 

Play has officially concluded here at the DSPT Calgary Main Event and Josh Wallace is the newest DSPT Champion. Wallace topped the field of 403 players to take home the top prize of $81,861.
Wallace gets $77,850 in cash, a $3,000 package to the Season 4 Championship, and a beautiful DSPT Trophy.

Coming into the day Wallace was sitting in the middle of the pack with a stack of 199,000. He continually chipped up throughout the day and eventually found himself heading into the final table with the 2nd biggest stack. When the final table started, it was a flurry of eliminations as Sunny Lubana was quickly eliminated in 9th, followed by Richard Mullen in 8th, and Ryan Godson in 7th. Following the fast paced action, Josh Wallace doubled through Thomas Taylor, leaving Taylor with just a few big blinds. He was eliminated a few hands later in 6th place.

The elimination of Thomas in 6th, Wallace locked up the DSPT Series Champ race, earning a $3,000 package to the Season 4 Championship, along with a trophy and VIP experience at any DSPT televised final table. Wallace started to gain ground on Andrew Gray who sat at the top of the counts but after Gray eliminated Luke Moravec in 5th he once again separated himself from the pack. Wallace however would score the next knockout, sending TJ Waddell to the rail in 4th and putting himself near even with Gray heading into three-handed play.

Richard Li would need to make something happen quickly, as he started three-handed play at a serious chip deficit. Li would do just that as he turned a full house again Gray, earning himself a double. The momentum seemed to continue in Li’s direction he moved all in holding A♠J♦ against the A♣2♥ of Wallace. Unfortunately for Li, Wallace turned a deuce and sent Li packing in third place.

Wallace would rake in the pot and head into heads up play with a slight chip advantage. The two exchanged pots back and forth until eventually it was Wallace doubling through Gray when his A♦Q♣ held against the K♦Q♦ of Gray. The double left Gray with less than an ante and the deficit was too much to overcome. Congratulations to Josh Wallace, the newest DSPT Champion!

 

 

 

Rommel Santos Takes Down WPTDS Reno ($54,085)

Rommel Santos topped a field of 233 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Reno Main Event Monday afternoon at the beautiful Atlantis Casino Resort Spa here in Reno, Nevada. Rommel was awarded $51,085 in prize money, a $3,000 Championship package, and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just over 3 hours of play today.

Santos won his seat into this event via a $250 satellite, and after picking up the chip lead late on Day 2 never looked back, eliminating 6 out of his 8 opponents at the final table. Coming into the day Santos held a slight chip lead, but the heater started when he eliminated Mario Lopez in 9th place. Shortly after, Santos collided in a monster pot with Valerie Hanley, in which his JdJh held against the AcKh of Hanley when all the chips went into the middle on a board reading 4c9c6h.

The players would take a short break and return with Randy Gil hitting the rail in 7th place. After Gil’s elimination it was Amir Turkzadeh doubling thru Tom Cage, leaving cage with just a few big blinds. Cage would hit the rail in 6th, followed by Jed Hoffman in 5th. Santos continued to pull out in front and then picked up top pair with his KhJc on a board reading KsQsTh. Turkzadeh would move all in holding 6s7s, but would fail to catch another spade and hit the rail in 4th.

Three handed play didn’t last long as Tim Armour moved all in holding TcTs and was quickly called by 9h9s of Santos. The Santos show continued as he flopped a nine, improving to a set and eliminating Armour. The hand would propel Santos into a massive chip lead for heads up play, as he sat on 5,250,000 to the 600,000 of Shawn Van Asdale. A few hands later the two would get it all in with Santos’ Qc8c out in front of the Jc9h of Van Asdale. Again Santos hand would hold up, as he becomes the newest WPTDS Champion.

 

 

 

Congratulations to Paul Brar, Winner of DSPT Edmonton (C$85,700)

The final table of the C$1,100 DSPT Edmonton Main Event has come to a conclusion with Paul Brar being crowned the champion!

The 455-player field had been whittled down to a final nine that returned today to battle it out until just one player was left standing. Straight out of the gate Adrian Baran would fall in 9th when his K♣K♦ would be out drawn by A♠9♣. A few hands later Kim Graham made a move into overnight chip leader Kris Swanson’s top pair and he was bounced in 8th place. Francis Fan exited in 7th place when his dominated ace wasn’t able to improve even after flopping a flush and chop draw.

For Swanson, he would then make a move in a monster pot that saw him shove A♦J♦ on a 6♥2♣7♥ flop against Michael DeGirolamo’s 7♣6♣ to be eliminated in 6th place as the first break was reached with DeGirolamo holding nearly half of the chips in play. Once play resumed, Russ Meilunas would be next to go when he shoved a weak ace into DeGirolamo’s A♦K♥.

With play now down to the final four, chips would circulate between each of the players before Ryan Godsend shoved top pair on a three-flush board and would be looked up by Amardeep Randhawa’s under pair and a flush draw. A fourth spade on the river would ensure Godsend on his 4th place finish before the final three continued to battle amongst each other. Eventually a monster pot saw Brar and Randhawa battle in a three-bet pot preflop where Randhawa open-shoved a 2♦4♥6♣ flop with A♠T♣ and Brar went deep into the think-tank before calling with 8♣8♦. Randhawa failed to improve and was out in 3rd place while Brar took a six-to-one chip lead into heads up play against DeGirolamo Heads-up play would last just one hand when Brar’s K♥T♣ would river a four-flush against DeGirolamo’s A♠T♦ to end his tournament in 2nd place as Brar would emerge victorious.

Luu was awarded $82,900 in prize money and a $3,000 WPTDS Championship package after winning a quick final table that clocked in at just under five hours of play. “Baby! Baby! I’m very blessed, I can’t believe I made it, this is just amazing. Baby, lately I’ve been running hot, and I’m very blessed,” said an excited Luu after the victory.

Cards got into the air at Noon between the final nine players, and the early stretch of play saw three quick eliminations. Prasad Inamdar (ninth place), Mario Sequeira (eighth place), and TJ Eisenmann (seventh place) fell in quick succession, but then a prolonged stretch of six-handed play took over as the remaining players blinded down to short stacks all around the table.

After the elimination of Dann Turner in sixth place, the final five players decided to a five-way chop, and played it out for the $3,000 WPTDS Championship package, WPTDS Player of the Year points, and an extra $2,500 on top to the winner. Here is the breakdown of the chop.

Wilson Tolon – $55,930
Mimi Luu – $44,024

Niv Decalo – $40,679
James Maxey – $37,133

Action picked up again after that, and we lost Kenny Lee (fifth place) and Niv Decalo (fourth place) on the same hand, and then Wilson Tolon followed them to the rail in third place.

James Maxey took 2.8 million into heads-up play against the 7.85 million of Mimi Luu, and the heads-up final was a short one. Their was only one all-in confrontation, and it started when Maxey moved all in preflop on the button with Kc5c in the hole. Luu called with 9c9s, and the board was dealt QcTd2s4h8c. Maxey was eliminated in second place after a deep run in the tournament.

Luu won the tournament and took home $82,900 in prize money along with the WPTDS trophy, and a $3,000 WPTDS Championship package for the WPTDS Championship event that will take place right here at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in December. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS champion – Mimi Luu!

 

Jose Montes Wins WPTDeepStacks Maryland ($95,032)

What started as a loaded final table ended up with some sugar on top as Jose ‘Suganills’ Montes is victorious at WPTDeepStacks Maryland. Montes registered at the last minute on Day 1B and bagged 141,500 to come into Day 2 near the chip average.

Montes had his chip stack move in all directions on Day 2 but managed to hold steady and come into the final table with 647,000. From there, Montes was able to use his years of tournament experience to ladder up the payouts and accumulate chips to stay alive.

Thanks to a few well-timed double ups and big hands, Montes took over the chip lead in shorthanded play with his kings versus ace-king confrontation against Karim Bevans making for the largest pot of the tournament. Montes made quick work of Nicholas Verderamo in heads up play to claim victory and the $95,032 first place prize.

Along with the money and title, Montes earns 800 points toward the WPTDS Player of the Year standings along with a $3,000 package toward the WPTDS Championship at Thunder Valley in December.

We expect to see Montes at some of our upcoming stops as he shoots for his second victory of the season.

 

Thijs Menco Wins WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam for €73,239 ($80,563)

Thijs Menco saw off a field of 243 to win the first €1,500 WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam and walk away with €73,239 ($80,563) in winnings, the trophy and a €2,000 WPTDS Europe package to the season ending event.

Menco came into the day as the shortest stack but put on a dominant performance full of well-timed aggression to eliminate three players at the final table and eventually walk away the overall winner.

There was a lively start to the final table, with Dennis Bijen and Richard Milne keeping up the table banter. Another player vying with Menco for the accolade of most aggressive player was Tobias Peters, who three-bet relentlessly to dominate proceedings.

The first player eliminated was Dutch TV presenter Robert Stegeman who ran his sevens into the Ace-King of Richard Milne for 9th place (€7,330). It wasn’t enough for Milne to regain the chip-lead, with Peters still holding strong.

Stegeman was followed out the door by Ami Barer (8th – €9,170) and Fredrick Andersson (7th – €10,750), before a decisive moment at the final table.

Pim van Wassenberg secured a vital double with Ace-Queen through the Ace-Jack of overnight chip-leader Milne (pictured above), and the Scot would be next to go in 6th (€12,615). Kees Aerts was next in 5th (€15,225) and then it was the turn of long-time chip-leader Peters whose Ten-Jack of spades was dominated by the pocket Jacks of Menco, and he left in 4th (€19,710).

That left three, and although Dennis Bijen doubled through Menco initially, it was Menco who had the last laugh, limping with Kings and snapping off Bijen who shoved with Jack-Five. Bijen took home €32,405 for his third place finish.

Coming into heads-up play, Menco had a chip advantage of 2:1, but it was Van Wassenberg showing the aggression as he quickly turned the tables on his opponent. Such was the flip it was Menco who secured a vital double-up, rivering a flush against the two-pair of his opponent.

In the final hand, a perfect storm lead to the tournament’s denouement. The river gave Menco a flush and Van Wassenberg (pictured above) two-pair. The chips went in, and the 40-year-old father of three Menco emerged victorious.

Van Wassenberg takes home €51,485 for second place with Menco winning €73,239 as well as a €2,000 WPTDS Europe package for the season ending event.

Michael Lin Wins the WPTDeepStacks Central California Main Event

Michael Lin (pictured) topped a field of 181 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Central California Main Event on Sunday at the Turlock Poker Room in Turlock, California. Lin was awarded $40,664 in prize money and a $3,000 WPTDS Championship package after winning the tournament on a final day that clocked in at just under 10 hours of play. “It just seemed that at the final table everything was going my way. I was getting cards, I was making bluffs, and I was just getting in my groove. I was playing great, but I also got very good cards. I can’t complain, it was just the run of a lifetime,” said Lin in his winner interview.

Cards got into the air at Noon between the final 42 players, and the field busted the money bubble when 21 players remained at 3:30 pm this afternoon. Notables that cashed on the way down to the final table included Darrel Dier (21st), Randy Gil (20th), Tuan Mai (12th), and Jasthi Kumar (11th).

The start of the final table saw a period of slow play before Mario Lopez busted in ninth place, Loren Cloninger fell in eighth place, and WPTDeepStacks Global Ambassador Tristan Wade was eliminated in seventh place.

Action really picked up when the field reached the final six players. Travis Fujisaka went out in sixth place, Paul Saso busted in fifth place, Victor Paredes hit the rail in fourth place, and Kyle Kitagawa exited the tournament in third place.

The final match was quick as well. On the first hand of heads-up play, Kathy Stahl moved all in with 9s3s in the hole, and Michael Lin called holding pocket eights. The board ran out 8s7s5s5d3d, and Lin’s full house topped the flopped flush of Stahl, who took home $30,602 as the runner-up.

Lin won the tournament and took home $40,664 along with the WPTDS trophy, and a $3,000 WPTDS Championship package for the WPTDS Championship event that will take place at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in December.

Congratulations to the newest WPTDS champion, Michael Lin!

Jonathan Khalifa Wins PMU.fr WPTDeepStacks Cannes Main Event for €60,157

Jonathan Khalifa (pictured) has become the PMU.fr WPTDeepStacks Cannes Main Event champion!

The Frenchman emerged victorious atop a final table that sported a lot of familiar names; Khalifa defeated Omar Lahkmari in heads-up play, Team PMU.fr Pro Erwann Pecheux finished in fifth place, and French icon Antonin Teissere finished in sixth place.

All nine final table players were from France.

For his win in the second European WPTDeepStacks event in the tour’s first-ever full season in Europe, Khalifa scored a first-place prize of €60,157, plus a €2,000 seat into the season-ending WPTDeepStacks European Championship.

WPTDeepStacks Cannes Final Table Results

1. Jonathan Khalifa – €60,157
2. Omar Lakhdari – €43,720
3. Anthony Cruz – €28,141
4. Alexandre Le Vaillant – €17,286
5. Erwann Pecheux – €13,297
6. Antonin Teisseire – €11,030
7. Dimitri Paillarguelo – €9,196
8. Fabien Bonavial – €7,595
9. Gilbert Diaz – €6,130

Khalifia joined Thijs Menco, winner of WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam, as the first winners of the season.

Sixteen players returned at 1 p.m. local time to Casino Barrière Le Croisette to crown a new WPTDeepStacks champion. For Dominique Terzian, Richard Msika, Jeremy Saderne, Jean-Paul Pasqualini, Brian Benhamou and Patrick Ambrosio, there was no final table in the cards. The same fate awaited Sebastien Buonomo, who lost ace-queen against pocket nines to become the final table “bubble boy.”

Pecheux began the day with the chip lead, and he also held the lead when the final table began with nine players remaining. Trailing Pecheux’s stack of 1.61 million was Khalifia with 1.527 million and Lakhdari with 1.258 million.

Action started with a bang when Gilbert Diaz misstepped against Lakhdari. In a three-bet pot, Diaz check-raised ace-seven on an eight-seven-six flop. Lakhdari had flopped a set of sixes, moved all in, and got the call from Diaz. It was a pivotal pot to Lakhdari, who moved into the chip lead with the pot.

Fabien Bonavial was eliminated in eighth place after Lakhdari flopped another set. Bonavial had a flush draw, but he didn’t get there.

Dimitri Paillarguelo followed shortly after in seventh place. After a raise and a call, Paillarguello shoved king-queen. Khalifa called with ace-queen to knock him out.

Antonin Teisseire added to his more than $2 million in live tournament earnings when he finished sixth. Short stacked, he shoved ace-eight. Khalifa called with queen-ten and turned a straight to send Teisseire home.

After Teissere’s bust, next to go was Erwann Pecheux. The Team PMU.fr Pro was on his ninth final table in a WPT event, but a victory has proved elusive. It didn’t happen in this event, either, as Pecheux had to settle for fifth place.

Pecheux tumbled quickly down from the top spot and eventually lost a big pot with top pair, top kicker against Anthony Cruz’s bottom set. Pecheux lost his last chips two hands later.

One of the most crucial hands of the final table happened after Pecheux busted out. In a battle of the blinds, Lakhdari held king-queen and Khalifa had king-seven. The two saw a king-king-jack flop, and, after substantial action on flop and turn, a seven landed on the river to give Khalifa a full house. Khalifa won the pot and claimed a massive chip lead that he never lost again.

Short stacks Alexandre Le Valliant and Anthony Cruz fell in the next hour, taking fourth and third places, respectively. Their eliminations set the stage for the heads-up battle between Lakhdari and Khalifa.

After half an hour of small pots, it all ended in one big hand. Khalifa open-shoved ace-three and Lakhdari called for all of his chips with pocket fives.

“One time!” begged Khalifa.

The poker gods obliged, and an ace landed on the flop. Khalifa held from there, and it was all over. Lakhdari received €43,720 for his second-place finish.

 

Third Try's the Charm for Rex Clinkscales - Wins 1st WPTDS Title at 3rd Final Table

WPTDeepStacks regular Rex Clinkscales (pictured) topped a record field of 704 players to win the WPTDS Tampa Main Event on Monday at a final table that clocked in at just over six hours of play. It was Clinkscales third final-table appearance on the tour, and this time he took home his first WPTDS title along with $159,354 in prize money.

Clinkscales made a last-minute decision to travel out to Tampa from Las Vegas after he busted out of a World Series of Poker event, and it turned out to be a great call. “It feels amazing. It’s an incredible feeling. I’m just really blessed, and really fortunate to even be here. I’m just very thankful to be able to win,” said Clinkscales, who was very happy after he made his seventh cash on tour his first WPTDS victory.

Cards got into the air at Noon between the final nine players, and it took two hours of play before Karl Manouchakian busted in ninth place, and Danny Laboto exited in eighth place. Another hour transpired before Amelio Amato took his leave in seventh place.

Clinkscales then scored a key double up thru Zoltan Anda, and that eventually sent Anda to the rail in sixth place. After that, Ryan Luker doubled up once, but he wasn’t able to double up the second time he moved all in. Luker cashed in fifth place, and then a long period of double ups sustained a lengthy four-handed battle.

After holding the chip lead for most of the early stages at the final table, Andrew Boccia was knocked down to a short stack during this stretch of play, and Boccia eventually busted in fourth place. The chip leader at the start of play Sebastian Momtazi was eliminated shortly after that in third place to set up a final battle between Clinkscales and Michael Cohen.

Clinkscales held a large lead with 14,475,000 over the 3.1 million of Cohen, but Cohen was able to double up once to prolong the heads-up battle. Cohen moved all in on the button to start the final hand, and Clinkscales called to cover him. They then flipped over their cards one last time.

Clinkscales: ThTc
Cohen: 9d6d

Board: 5c4c3sKc5h

 Cohen was eliminated in second place, good for $92,374, and Clinkscales won the WPTDS Tampa Main Event. He took home $159,354 in prize money, a $3,000 WPTDS Championship package, and a WPTDS trophy.

Brent Roberts Wins WPTDS Big Stax XV Main Event ($202,944)

Late in Day 2, with five tables remaining, this WPTDeepStacks Big Stax XV field was stacked with some big names and players that had lengthy, almost exhaustive tournament resumes. That field included past WSOP bracelet and Circuit ring winners, World Poker Tour champions, the Season 2 WPTDS Player of the Year, and some of the region and country’s best players. Fast forward to the start of this final table and the only player still alive that fit the above criteria was Brent Roberts.

The New York native entered that relatively unknown final table lineup near the middle of the pack and while it doesn’t usually occur, tonight, the creme certainly rose to the top. Roberts bided his time watching three players hit the rail, while he stayed below the chip average and under the radar. After two hours of watching from the sidelines, Roberts was done waiting and that’s when his run towards this WPTDS title began.

Roberts picked a near perfect spot against the uber-active John Lee, doubling through Lee’s pocket fives with his own pocket eights. From that point on, it was a steady, yet tactical climb for the former WSOPC ring winner. He continued to chip away at Lee, who ended up bowing out in 5th place. But, the biggest hand of the final table and, in the end, the tournament defining hand, came against Andy Santiago.

In a button versus small blind encounter, Santiago and Roberts got nearly half the chips in play in pre flop, with Roberts holding pocket aces. Santiago held king-queen and even though he thought it was “his time,” he was unable to score the elimination. From that point on, it was Robert’s time and the most experienced player at this final table used his chip lead to apply pressure and score the next there knockouts to lock up his first major tournament win since that WSOP Circuit Championship in 2008.
Roberts has come close to the winner’s circle since then, with his most recent massive score coming at the WPT’s August stop at the Bicycle Casino. Roberts finished 3rd in that event, good for a $251,000 score and that podium finish started a six-month stretch of run good for Roberts. He got married earlier this year and now, early in Season 3 of the WPTDS schedule, he likely finds himself near the top of the Player of the Year leaderboard after claiming the WPTDS Big Stax XV title.

After a destination wedding and honeymoon to Fiji to open 2016, it looks like Roberts is going to be heading on another trip at the end of the year. This victory earns him a seat into the WPTDS Championship to be held in Calgary in December. He’ll make just over $202,000 for this win, a victory that closes out a record breaking WPTDS Big Stax XV series.

 

Sam Ngai Wins DSPT Calgary Main Event ($77,400)

Sam Ngai topped a field of 421 players to win the DSPT Calgary Main Event on Monday night at the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino. Ngai was awarded $77,400 in prize money and the DSPT championship package, along with the DSPT trophy. Action was nonstop all day with the first hand off the deck providing loads of entertain, as Malcom Bolger managed to fold kings pre-flop, which we soon found out would extend his tournament life.

The hand set an interesting dynamic for the table as Bolger and his long time friend Jamil Kanji would battle back and forth for the remainder of the final table. Eventually it was Thomas Taylor hitting the rail in 9th, followed by Anthony Elaraj in 8th, Jonathan Sanborn in 7th, and Brett Elder in 6th. Following Elder out the door was Ron Piasetzki in 5th place, leaving us four handed between Robert Dore, Malcom Bolger, Jamil Kanji, and Sam Ngai.

Robert Dore actually missed the first few hands of the day, which was crucial considering the fact he was the short stack starting the day. He managed to win a few big hands early and laddered all the way to 4th place. Bolger would be the next to hit the rail after his table nemesis, Jamil Kanji, would get the best of him and send him home in 3rd.

The exit of Bolger would leave Kanji and Ngai heads up, with Ngai facing a 2-1 chip deficit. The deficit wouldn’t last long however, after Ngai’s two pair would earn him a double against the smaller two pair of Kanji. The hand turned the tides of the heads up match, and it was Ngai eventually waking up with aces and defeating the queen-jack of Kanji. Congratulations to Sam Ngai, the newest DSPT Champion!

 

 

Ian Otobo Wins WPTDS Malta (€20,300)

Ian Otobo topped a field of 174 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Malta Main Event on Monday night at the beautiful Dragonara Casino here in St. Julians, Malta. Otobo was awarded €20,300 in prize money, a $3,000 Championship package, and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just under 7 hours of play today.

Action was slow to start day with play continuing for nearly three hours before our first elimination. It was Timothee Marlin hitting the rail in 9th, followed by Timo Hirvola in 8th, Marko La Grutta in 7th, Joseph Dunning in 6th, Gregoire Auzoux in 5th, and Marco Putin in 4th.

Three handed play didn’t last very long as Dario Marinelli ran into the aces of Roberto Campo to hit the rail in third. Heads up play we saw chips fly back and forth, but eventually it was Otobo’s time to shine, as his Qc2d would hold against the Jh2s of Campo. Campo wouldn’t leave empty handed as he takes home €14,220.

Here is a look at the final table results:

Ian Otobo – €20,300
Roberto Campo – €14,220
Dario Marinelli – €9,146
Marco Putin – €6,772
Gregoire Auzoux – €5,083
Joseph Dunning – €4,063

Salomon Ponte Wins WPTDeepStacks Hollywood Main Event

 

Salomon Ponte topped a field of 1,684 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Hollywood Main Event on Monday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Ponte was awarded $341,420 in prize money and the WPTDeepStacks trophy after winning a final table that clocked in at just under 4 hours of play today. Action was nonstop all day with Paul Balzano hitting the rail first, exiting in 9th place. Following Balzano out the door was Zack Goodman (8th), Ryan D’Angelo(7th), Michael LaRocca(6th), Kenneth Watson (5th) and Harrison Gimbel (4th). Three-handed play was pretty short as Thong Ho made his exit fairly soon after Gimbel.
After Gimbel was eliminated, the heads-up final didn’t last too long after that to decide a champion. Edward Mallon quickly chipped up to take a commanding lead, but after the 6h7c of Salomon ran down Mallon’s 9c9s. Following the hand the two managed to get it all in nearly 10 times before Salomon eventually got the best of Mallon, crowning Ponte the newest WPTDeepStacks Champion.

Here is a look at the final table results:

 

Salomon Ponte – $341,420 + $3,000 WPTDS Championship
Edward Mallon – $241,720

Third-place finisher Brian Reinert was also awarded the $3,000 DSPT Championship package in the chop.

Season 2 Champion has been Crowned!

 

The final 18 players from a field of 567 returned today at noon to play down to a champion, and they reached the final table in just two quick hours of play. Lost along the way were DSPT Player of the Year contenders Rex Clinkscales (14th place) and James Gorham (12th place). That gave the Season 2 DSPT POY title to DSPT Ambassador Tristan Wade, who scored seven cashes during the 16 stops this season.

With the matter of POY decided, it was time to get down to the business of crowning the DSPT Championship winner. Sean Trenholm (9th), Ashkan Razavi (8th), Benny Chen (7th), Chris Symesko (6th), and Sal Haji (5th) all hit the rail before a 30-minute dinner break.

The final four returned from dinner and Zariyan Qayyum (4th) and Fred Mowatt (3rd) both made quick exits. The final two players then decided to chop up the remaining prize pool, pocketing $189,152 CAD each. They played it out for the DSPT trophy and the final $20,000 CAD remaining in the prize pool. The final match came down to the results of three pivotal hands.

In the first, Ramalho doubled up with pocket queens topping the A-7 of McMillan on a board dealt 9-7-2-10-2. That gave Ramalho a commanding lead with 14.4 million and McMillan was on the ropes with 2.6 million. McMillan scored a double up to bring the match back close to even when her K-10 connected on a board dealt K-6-2-4-Q to top the pocket sevens of Ramalho. The final hand saw McMillan pin her tournament hopes on 4-2 with a flop reading Q-6-2. Ramalho held pocket nines and they held up to win the tournament after the turn and river fell 8-K.

McMillan was out in second place and she took home $189,152 CAD. Ramalho is the champion, and he takes home the top prize worth $209,152 CAD and the DSPT trophy. Congratulations to our new champion – Rodney Ramalho!

Final Table Results:

1: Rodney Ramalho – $209,152 CAD
2: Patz McMillan – $189,152 CAD
3: Fred Mowatt – $105,555 CAD
4: Zariyan Qayyum – $78,175 CAD

Following record-breaking events in Season 2 that saw 16-stops throughout North America and the Mediterranean, WPTDS is poised to outdo itself again in Season 3. Larry Flynt’s world famous Hustler Casino in Los Angeles serves as the launching pad for the first half of the 2016 slate. The 10-day series kicks off January 2nd and features a $1,100 buy-in, 3 starting days with a $300,000 GTD prize pool.


Other first half highlights include:

Josh Moua Wins WPTDS Central CA Main Event

 

The WPTDS Central CA Main Event has come to a close and Josh Moua (pictured above) has topped a field of 175 players to take home the top prize worth, a $3,000 WPTDS Championship Seat and Travel Package, the WPTDS Trophy, and a pair of Monster DNA Headphones. He claimed the title just before 1 a.m. on Monday at the Turlock Poker Room in the Central Valley of California.

The final day of the tournament saw the field reach the money when the final 19 players remained, and the final table was set around 7 p.m. in the evening. Simon Silas fell in quick succession in 10th place, and then the Day 1A chip leader Mark Johnson was surprisingly the next player to fall in ninth place. Jashti Kumar then took his leave in eighth place.

One of the largest hands of the tournament took place when Moua doubled up to a million thanks to a flopped flush against Miguel Lopez, who took a big hit on the hand. Lopez was actually the next player to fall in seventh place when his pocket sixes ran into the pocket tens of Aram Alexander. The final six players then took a dinner break just after 9 p.m.

The half-dozen players that returned from dinner circled the prospect of a chop after their break but decided to keep playing until Adrian Bolanos busted in sixth place. They paused again after that took place and this time they decided to chop the remaining prize pool. Here is a look at the payouts in the chop agreement:

Seat 3: Dana Muse – 630,000 ($23,037)
Seat 5: Josh Moua – 2,060,000 ($36,341)
Seat 7: Aram Alexander – 505,000 ($21,068)
Seat 8: Francisco Loera – 1,035,000 ($28,215)
Seat 10: Robert Huff – 200,000 ($15,052)

There was still the matter of the WPTDS Title, trophy, $3,000 WPTDS Championship Prize Package, and a pair of Monster DNA Headphones to decide, so the remaining five players then played down to a champion. Francisco Loera was the first to fall after he was crippled in a hand where the pocket tens of Dana Muse found a ten on the river to beat his pocket jacks. Loera was out in fifth place a short time later and he was followed to the rail by Robert Huff in fourth place.

Aram Alexander exited in third place and that set up a final match between Moua (2,855,000) and Muse (1,520,000). Muse doubled up twice to take the chip lead in the heads-up final, but the stacks were still pretty close as they played past midnight. Moua regained the lead when the chips went into the middle a final time. Muse was all in preflop with 10♦6♥ in the hole and Moua had her covered holding 8♠6♦. The board was dealt J♦8♦4♠2♠8♣ and Muse was eliminated in second place. That made Moua the champion of the tournament. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS Champion Josh Moua!

Final Table Results:

1: Josh Moua – $50,594 + WPTDS Champ Package
2: Dana Muse – $30,015
3: Aram Alexander – $19,176
4: Robert Huff – $13,507
5: Francisco Loera – $10,423
6: Adrian Bolanos – $7,921
7: Miguel Lopez- $6,170
8: Jashti Kumar- $4,586
9: Mark Johnson-$3,252
10: Simon Silas- $2,585

That concludes our coverage of the WPTDS Central CA Main Event. Thanks to the Turlock Poker Room for hosting another great event, and congratulations to them on the 13.6 percent year-over-year growth of the Main Event field. The next stop on the tour will take us south to the Bicycle Casino for the WPTDS Los Angeles Main Event July 11-14.

 

James Gorham Wins WPTDS LA Main Event

 

The WPTDeepStacks LA $1,100 Main Event has come to a close and James Gorham has topped the field of 367 players to take home the top prize worth $,95,290 and the WPTDS trophy. This three-day tournament came to a conclusion on Tuesday evening after a quick final table decided the winner. Things did start a little slow before the first elimination of the day, and it was Keith Kwazar who hit the rail first in ninth place. Paul Chauderson (Eighth Place) and Jay Helfert (Seventh Place) fell in quick succession after that. Craig Berger started to pull away with the chip lead at this point in play.

Prashray Rai then doubled up twice to stave off elimination before William Zaiss was eliminated in sixth place. The last woman standing today was Dana Muse. She took fifth place after finishing as the runner-up in the WPTDS Central California Main Event just one month ago.

Chad Geske saw his tournament run come to an end in fourth place when his two pair fell against the straight of Berger, who further increased his chip lead before the start of three-handed play. James Gorham started the day with the lead though, and he reclaimed that lead after eliminating Prashray Rai in third place.

Gorham took 4,735,000 into the final match but Berger was close on his heels with 4,445,000. Play started slow between the final two players since the stacks were so evenly match but the fireworks eventually started. Gotham got low but he doubled up twice before the defining hand of the final match took place. Berger was dealt a Broadway straight but Gorham made a flush on the river to win the largest pot in the tournament.

Berger was crippled after that and he was all in a short time later with A-7, but Gorham did him one better with A-8. The final board fell 8-5-2-K-7 and that was it for Berger, his tournament run came to an end in second place. Gorham took home the top prize of $95,290, the WPTDeepStacks trophy, and a pair of Monster DNA headphones.

Final Table Results
1: James Gorham – $95,290
2: Craig Berger – $56,360
3: Prashray Rai – $36,880
4: Chad Geske – $25,410

Dustin Fox Tops Record Field of 330 to Win Inagural WPTDS Reno Main Event

The WPTDeepStacks Reno Main Event came to a close late Sunday night at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nevada. A champion has emerged from the record-breaking field of 330 players and his name is Dustin Fox. He takes home the top prize worth $70,054, the WPTDeepStacks trophy, and a $3,000 WPTDeepStacks Championship package.

There were 53 players that returned for the final day of this event at noon PT, and only the top 36 made the money. Allen Kessler, Dana Muse, Andrew Bedecker, and Nicholas Pupillo were among the early bustouts that missed the money. Notables that did cash included WPTDS LA Season 2 champion James Gorham (17th place) and Nicholas Revello (11th place).

The final table was reached around 6:30 p.m. and the final nine players took a dinner break before returning for the final skirmish. Dean Reno (ninth place), Ravi Shanmugam (eighth place), WPTDS LA Season 1 champion Steve Foutty (seventh place), and Angela Jordison (sixth place) busted during the first hour of play.

Scott Sherwood scored a series of double ups before busting out in fifth place. Ivan Holmes and Dustin Fox then doubled up through Cary Marshall, and that led to his exit in fourth place. The battle for third place lasted an hour before Brandon Jones took his leave, and that set up a heads-up final between Holmes and Fox. It took just two hands to decide a winner of the final match, and Fox won the tournament with jacks-up topping the nines-up held by Holmes.

Filipp Khavin Wins WPTDeepStacks Immokalee Main Event!

 With the elimination of Tim Miles in third place, Phil Hernz and Filipp Khavin agreed to a chop in which Herz takes home $47,000, Khavin takes home $45,000 and the two would battle it out for the extra $2,769, POY points, & $3,000 championship package. The two exchanged hands back and forth for nearly 30 minutes before Hernz raised the button to 130,000. Khavin defended the big blind and the two watched as the dealer spread a flop of J♦T♦7♦. Khavin checks to Hernz, who continues with a bet of 165,000. Khavin thinks about it briefly before he calls and both players see the 3♣ hit the turn. Again Khavin checks and again Hernz bets, but this time its for 500,000. Khavin moves all in and Hernz calls. Khavin: 8♣9♦ Hernz: A♥J♥ Khavin flopped the nut straight and has Hernz drawing dead. A meaningless 10♠ hits the river and Khavin takes an overwhelming chip lead, as Herz is left with just 100,000. A few hands later the two got it all in again. Khavin: 8♠3♥ Herz: K♣4♠ The board runs out 9♦T♣7♦2♥J♣ and Filipp Khavin takes home the title of WPTDeepStacks Immokalee champion!

 

Phil Hernz will take home $47,000 for his second place finish here in Immokalee and Khavin is headed to Calgary for the $2,500, $500,000 guarantee DSPT championship event in December! Here is a look at the full list of results from the final table.

Mike Smith Wins DSPT-Edmonton Main Event ($82,060)

 

It seems like it was yesterday when the Ryan Smith winners story was posted after he took down the $1,500 DSPT-Edmonton main event. One year later and it is Mike Smith, Ryan’s younger brother, that is taking home the trophy along with the $82,060.

Smith came into the final table second in chips and managed to chip out throughout the entire tournament before knocking out Sal Haji in a monster pot three handed. The pot awarded Smith with a 5-1 chip lead heading into heads up play and despite a strong fought battle from Wesley Hickey, the chip deficit was too much to over come. On the final hand of play Wesley Hickey raises to 150,000. Mike Smith thinks about it for several moments before he moves all in. Hickey calls and the hands are revealed.

Smith- 8♦8♥
Hickey- A♣10♦

The dealer spreads a flop of J♦4♣9♠ and Smith’s eights remain in the lead. The turn brings the K♠and Hickey picks up a straight draw.

Tucker Stone Wins WPTDS Iowa ($33,254)

The lights are off, the crowd is gone, and Tucker Stone is your newest WPTDS Champion. It was a wild day of action here at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort and after all was said and done it is Tucker Stone taking home the $33,254 top prize, $3,000 championship package and the WPTDS Iowa Trophy. On top of the first place prize, Stone’s victory also secured him the Player of the Series title which includes a one of a kind WPT VIP experience, custom WPTDS trophy, complimentary two night stay here at Riverside, and an entry into the Riverside Casino and Resort Anniversary Poker Classic.

Stone came into the day as the chip leader but after a few levels of play it was Colin Eric Lovelock who started to rise and eventually take over the chip lead. The day started off fast with the eliminations of Shawn Quinn in 9th, Garret Riley in 8th, Brent Luscombe in 7th, and Jacob Parsons in 6th.

Once we hit 5 handed play the action slowed down substantially as we went over three hours without an elimination. Returning from dinner it was Tristan Wade who would eventually hit the rail in 5th at the hands of Colin Lovelock. Shortly after Wade it was Matt Sztamburski who was eliminated in 4th leaving us two eliminations away from a new champion. Chris Gerhardt was eliminated in 3rd and we were left heads up with Colin Lovelock holding a small chip advtange with his 1,835,000 to the 1,400,000 of Tucker Stone.

Heads up started off with a lot of pre flop raises taking down the pots until fireworks erupted in what was the biggest hand of the night. Colin Eric Lovelock opened to 75,000 and Tucker Stone would shove all in for close to 1.4 million and his tournament life. Lovelock snap called and tabled the A♠A♣ Stone needed help as he held the 2♠2♦. The dealer spread the flop of 5♠4♦6♠ and Stone would need a 3 for a straight or one of the remaining twos in the deck.

The turn brought the J♦ and Lovelock was one card away from the victory. “Queen of hearts” yelled Lovelock before the dealer put the 3♠ on the river giving Stone the straight and the double up. Stone took over a commanding shipload as he would now sit with 2,850,000 of the 3,375,000 chips in play. A few hands later his A♣6♠ would best the 6♦6♣ of Lovelock and we were left with our newest champion.

Thank you to everyone who came out and we will see you guys in Turlock!

 

 

Jason Ross Wins DSPT Edmonton Main Event! (C$68,310)

We have crowned our latest DSPT Champion and taking home the prize is no other than Jason Ross. Ross will take home $68,310 + $3,000 DSPT Championship package after he reached a deal three handed with Richard Mullen and Ian Alvarado where both Mullen and Alvardo would lock up $70,000 and Ross would lock up $60,000, leaving $8,310 and the $3,000 package up for grabs.

Ross came into the day with a commanding chip lead and continued to build his stack throughout the day. There was no shortage of action was we immediately lost John Anga on the first hand of the day. Following Anga we saw Calvin Anderson hit the rail in 8th and Craig Einarson in 7th, both at the hands of eventual 2nd place finished Ian Alvarado.

After the initial flurry of knockouts the action did slow day a bit until eventually Mike Lu lost a massive pot holding 9♠9♣ against the A♥A♠ of Richard Mullen on a K♥7♦9♥10♣ board. The two got all of their chips in the middle and Mullen spiked the A♦ on the river to cripple Lu, as the Lu busted in 6th just a few hands later.

After Lu it was Raymond Trieu who hit the rail in 5th, when his short stack’s A♥3♦ couldn’t hold up against the 7♠8♠ of Jason Ross. After we lost Trieu it seemed as if the tides started to turn as each player took their shot at Jason Ross, all picking up chips off the leader. The chips continued to fly all around the table and would eventually land in the middle of the pot when Tam Duong shoved his last 1,500,000 into the middle holding A♠4♣. Jason Ross woke up with A♦K♦ and that would be the end of Duong as he exited in 4th leaving the remaining 3 to battle it out.

Three handed the action continued as each player took over the chip lead at least once. When the three of them cut a deal it was Ian Alvarado who held a slight chip lead over Richard Mullen and Jason Ross held the shortest stack. After a level of back and forth play, Mullen moved all in with A♣ 2♥ and would fail to improve against the 7♣7♠ of Alvarado, sending him home in 3rd. This would send us into heads up play with Alvarado sitting on 8,200,000 against the 4,500,000 of Jason Ross.

Heads up play wouldn’t last long though as Jason Ross quickly doubled through Alvardo and would eventually cripple him in a huge hand, leaving Ross with over 12.4 of the 12.7 million in play. The next hand Alvarado moved in blind and that was all she wrote for DSPT Edmonton as Jason Ross takes home the DSPT Trophy, $68,310 and the $3,000 DSPT Championship Package!

Winner's Interview:

Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi Goes Wire-to-Wire to Win DSPT Calgary Main Event

Michael Mizrachi came into the final day of the DSPT Calgary Main Event with a monster chip lead after bagging 567,000 on Day 1A. In the early hours of Sunday morning, Mizrachi finished his wire-to-wire run and won the event and took home $72,150, a pair of Monster DNA headphones and a seat into the DSPT Championship after defeating Karim Chatur heads-up.

The day started with 78 players and the money bubble was looming over everybody's head, with just 54 players earning a cash. Samuel Ngai earned everybody a pay day when he turned a pair of eights after getting all in preflop with his 10♣ 8♣ against his opponent's K J♣. That guaranteed everybody left at least $1,870 and then the bustouts began to pile up and the tournament quickly began to shrink in size.

Among the notables who earned a cash were Calen McNeil, Reigning DSPT POY Ryan Smith, Jonathan Sanborn and Valerie Ross. Ross made it the deepest of the group, bubbling the official final table and finishing in 10th place for $5,975.

As the field size shrank, Mizrachi's stack grew. He hit his stride midway through the day and headed into the final table with almost 25% of the chips in play. He continued to chip up and when the tournament got down to three-handed play, he held just over half the chips in play. He sent Ryan Southworth to the rail in third place and then held a 3-to-2 chip lead over Karim Chatur for an upcoming heads-up battle.

The two agreed on an ICM chop and to just play for the headphones and a seat into the DSPT Championship. Mizrachi took home $72,150 and Chatur took earned $67,500. Mizrachi defeated Chatur in a short heads-up battle to guarantee himself an appearance back here in Calgary at the Grey Eagle Casino for the DSPT Championship in the first week of December.

WPTDeepStacks Season I Player of the Year Ryan Smith

Congratulations to Ryan Smith, the WPTDeepStacks 2014 Player of the Year!

Ryan Smith had a very successful run starting in Edmonton, Canada. He was crowned the Champion in the $1,500 NL Main Event at Casino Yellowhead after defeating Josh Steeper for the title, earning himself over $79,000. He then made his way west to Oceanside, California for the last WPTDeepStacks stop of the season. He was 4th on the POY list with Fraser Short first on the leaderboard. Fraser Short was unable to attend the last series being only 20 years old. Second on the leaderboard was Jonathan Sanborn, who made his way to San Diego hunting for the Player of the Year title. After elimination before the money, Ryan Smith was climbing the leaderboard. Finishing 44th in the $1,100 Main event surpassing Sanborn and Short, gaining the title with 101.72 points. Finishing in 2nd place was Harshit Patel with 90.47 pts!

As a reward, Ryan will receive a seat into the 2015 WPT© World Championship as well as a 2015 WPTDeepStacks Sponsorship package including: A $5,000 package that can be used towards WPTDeepStacks buy-ins, hotel & airfare accommodations, a spotlight feature on WPTDeepStacks.com and official WPTDeepStacks gear. In addition, Ryan will also receive a custom WPTDeepStacks Player of the Year Trophy and a custom WPTDeepStacks Player of the Year poker table provided by Off Tilt Poker Tables.
