Another successful DeepStack Championship event is in the books. This time, our Event #61 $500 NLH LIPS Ladies $50K GTD attracted 194 players who created a prize pool of $83,240; surpassing the guarantee of $50,000. Of those, 25 made it to Day 2, and we paid out 21 places.
It took the field three hours to lose eleven players, then a final table that lasted an additional three hours, before a champion was crowned.
Lynee Beaumont eliminated Sylvia Hewitt (10th) and Karina Lima (9th) before ultimately falling to Sandy Kasinowicz in eighth place after losing a big flop against Kyong Hui Yung in a previous hand.
Yung (three knockouts) and Melisa Singh (two knockouts) then took care of the next five players before setting up their heads-up match.
Yung had a commanding chip lead and ultimately took out Singh when her ace-three out flopped Singh’s pocket eights to see her take down the event.
Congratulations again to Kyong Hui Yung from Henderson, NV.
