Over 100 events populate the DeepStack Extravaganza schedule and with this week’s $1,100 SuperStack event on tap, a few players are hoping that this is the event that jumpstarts a highly profitable summer in Sin City.
Vegas local Dutch Boyd pops his head into the Venetian Poker Room on a regular basis and wasn’t about ready to miss this week’s $250,000 guaranteed event. Boyd’s live poker career stretches back to the early days of televised poker when he made a deep run and finished 12th in the 2003 Main Event. The promise that Boyd showed then has been fulfilled by his three bracelet victories and he is in search of his first career DSE title on Day 1B.
Most of the temporary East Coast transplants that were touched on during Day 1A recently arrived in the last few days but Je Wook Oh beat them all here by a full week. Oh has been a fixture at the Venetian since the DSE III series started but has yet to make a major run in any of the events he’s played in. That drought is bound to end at some point for Oh, who does quite well in large fields as evidenced by his recent fourth place finish in a herd of 3,000 at the Borgata where he earned $92,000.
