Another successful DeepStack Championship event is in the books. This time, our Event #91 $1,100 NLH Summer Saver I $1M GTD attracted 1,363 players who created a prize pool of $1,328,925; crushing the guarantee of $1,000,000. Of those, 175 returned for Day 2 and 153 made the money, collecting $1,993 for their efforts.
Day 2 commenced at noon, and after almost eleven hours of play, reached a final table of ten. An additional four and a half hours was needed before a champion was crowned.
Eliminations occurred once every half hour, with Rui Milhomens exiting first in tenth, followed by Nils Tolpingrud in ninth, Sean Yu in eighth, Roman Rogovskyi in seventh and then Ed Sebesta in sixth.
Five-handed play lasted ninety minutes before Meriem Camel was finally sent to the rail.
Once four-handed, the remaining players agreed to a chop, that saw the player in Seat 10 finish fourth, Chucai Huang finish third, Michael Wasserman finish second, and Giovanni G. awarded the victory and being crowned the champion.
