Another successful DeepStack Championship event is in the books. This time, our Event #84 $600 NLH MonsterStack $500K GTD attracted 1,781 players who created a prize pool of $899,405; crushing the guarantee of $500,000. Of those, 189 made the money, collecting $1,619 for their efforts.
Day 2 resumed at 12:10pm, and after 13 hours of play, reached a final table of ten. An additional three hours was needed to finally crown a champion.
The final table started with the quick elimination of Andrew Saklad in tenth place.
Thirty minutes passed before the next elimination. Enrico DiFranco (9th), Aleksandar Trajkoviski (8th) and Florent Le Neillon (7th) all fell in the space of fifteen minutes.
Shortly after, Doug Gladstone eliminated Steven Couture in sixth place, which gave him the chip lead.
Andrew Wisdom fell in 5th place. This was Wisdom’s second cash this series, after taking down the $1,100 NLH DoubleStack a few weeks ago, where he collected $66,043.
Gladstone looked like he would run away with the event, but lost two crucial hands against Joseph Di Rosa Rojas and Richard Mullen, ultimately falling to the latter in fourth place.
Once three handed; Peter Nigh (3rd), Joseph Di Rosa Rojas (2nd) and Richard Mullen all agreed to a chop, and ended the night there leaving Mullen as the champion.
