Another hugely successful DeepStack Championship Poker Series event is in the books. Our Event #32 $800 PLO Bounty (8Max) $75K GTD attracted 144 players who combined for a prize pool of $72,000 plus $28,800 in bounties for a total prize pool of $100,800. Of these 144 players, only 11 made it to Day 2, and we found ourselves with our nine-handed final table rather quickly after the second day commenced.
Our final table was quite an entertaining and pleasant mix of characters, and everyone seemed to be having a great time and enjoying our hectic and electric atmosphere.
Sasha Liu was the second chip leader behind Kevin Barton entering Day 2 (although she had the lion’s share of bounties by this point.) She quickly took over the chip lead, and, wouldn’t you know it, we ended up with heads-up play between these two which didn’t last too terribly long because Liu was definitely in the zone, especially with her lucky cat ears.
When all was said and done, Liu reigned supreme and took home the $20,161 top prize plus her numerous bounties. Congratulations again to Sasha Liu.
Congratulations again to the rest of our final table.
