Another successful DeepStack Championship event is in the books. This time, our Event #56 $600 NLH UltimateStack $100K GTD attracted 601 players who created a prize pool of $303,505; smashing the guarantee of $100,000. Of those, 106 made it to Day 2, and we paid out 63 places.
The day went relatively slowly, with the final table finally being reached after 10 hours of play. The final table then lasted just short of three hours with eliminations happening rather quickly.
Pedro Oliveira and Nikhil Gera went to work eliminating the first four players from the final table before there were five left.
A deal was put forward, which Oliveira didn’t agree to, so the action continued. In the following hand, Joseph Brand eliminated Oliveira, and the final four made an immediate chop to end proceedings.
Thomas Gaylean finished fourth, Oleksandr Troyhymenko third, Nikhil Gera came second, and Joseph Brand took it all down.
