DeepStack Extravaganza Event 32 Champion –
Stefan Meier took control of the Event 32 final table right from the start of ten-handed play and hit a hot streak in Level 21 that his opponents could not overcome. Meier had one opponent standing in his way in Jack Smith (pseudonym for a player who wished to remain anonymous) but took care of Smith in only a few hands to claim victory.
Smith raised to 65,000 on the button and Meier raised enough to put Smith all-in. Smith called for his last 850,000 with 6♣6♥ and was in a flip against Meier’s A♦K♦. The 5♥4♦3♣ flop took away Meier’s straight outs but the K♠ turn put Meier in the lead. The 3♠ river did nothing for Smith and he earns $9,442 for his second place finish.
Meier takes home $15,245 for his first career DSE victory in what turned into a dominating final table performance. Along with his first place prize, Meier also earns nearly $2,000 in bounties. This victory is also Meier’s first ever recorded win and hopefully, he returns to the Venetian to take his shot in future tournaments here.
