DeepStack Extravaganza Event 74 Champion –
Shawn Nguyen

In one of the most dominating final table performances of the 2017 DSE III, Shawn Nguyen took down a final table full of PLO8 specialists to win Event 74. Nguyen started Day 2 as the chip leader and held 25 percent of the chips at the start of the final table.

As the chip leader, Nguyen had some leeway to take risks and he took advantage of that fact by repeatedly putting his opponents to the test. Even when he got his money in behind, Nguyen managed to catch the necessary cards when he needed to in order to maintain his advantage.

Nguyen’s elimination of Tim Vukson in sixth place cemented his lead and he chipped up from there until the title was his. This win is Nguyen’s first DSE cash overall and his second largest career cash behind a 2015 World Poker Tour final table finish.
