Places Paid: 36
Winner: Scott Rist – 29,297
The first multi-day Omaha event of the DeepStack Championship Series brought out 274 steel-wheelers to compete for the $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. Scott Rist entered Day 2 as the chip leader and finishes the tournament inside the winner’s circle.
Rist’s path to victory took him on a few ups and downs as he battled against the field. Sergey Zaprorozhets was the chip leader for most of the final table but Rist hung with him and never gave in. Rist survived a few all-ins to stay alive and took the lead heads up after picking off a Zaprorzhets bluff. A few hands later, Rist sealed the deal to collect the $29,297 first-place prize.
This is the first win for Rist at The Venetian and we hope to see him back for more Omaha events this summer.
