DeepStack Extravaganza Event 76 Champion –
The fireworks are soon to go off across Las Vegas but there were plenty of them inside The Venetian Poker Room this afternoon. Matthew Leecy and Clement Richez battled next to each other for the full Event 76 final table and in the end, it was Leecy who got the better of his French opponent.
Leecy opened Day 2 as the chip leader and came into the final table holding the same position. Leecy consistently put pressure on his opponents and bullied them with his large chip stack. Richez took the lead from Leecy a few times and started their heads up match out in front. Each time he fell down, Leecy came back up firing and was rewarded for his persistence.
Along with his first place prize, Leecy collected 15 bounties, totaling $4,500. This is the third DSE title for Leecy and with how he played today, likely far from his last.
