Peter Morris – Event 13: $340 DoubleStack $100K GTD – $31,484

The Venetian DeepStack Championship Series is in full swing and one of the first of many six-figure guarantees wrapped up with a familiar face in the winner’s circle. Peter Morris emerged from a field of 595 to capture the Event 13 title and his third career DeepStack Extravaganza trophy.

Morris topped a tough final table filled with pros including Doug Lee, Dan Heimiller, and Ben Palmer. With his Boston Celtics already booking a win in the Eastern Conference finals earlier tonight, Morris won wearing his lucky jersey.

In February,  Morris locked up a win in the $100,000 guaranteed SuperStack at DeepStack Extravaganza I for $23,792 wearing the same piece of green.

Morris adds $31,484 to his career earnings and is now up over $155,000 in tournament results.

Tonight is the start of Morris’ DeepStack Championship campaign and we are sure to be seeing him throughout the next two months.

Level 32
Blinds: 80,000/160,000 w/ 20,000 ante
Player Remaining: 1/595
Average Stack:  14,875,000

Heads up play between Shawn Nelson and Peter Morris was decided in effectively one hand. Nelson and Morris battled for all of it and Morris found fortune on the river to win himself Event 13.

Morris raised to 375,000 on the button and faced a three-bet from Nelson to 875,000. Morris called and the flop rolled out K108♣. Nelson continued for 500,000 and Morris stuck with him to the 5♣ turn.

Nelson wagered 1,200,000 more and Morris raised to 3,800,000. Nelson wasn’t thrilled with the raise and used two minutes to think the spot over as he and Morris exchanged friendly banter.

Eventually, Nelson moved in for 5,895,000 total and Morris called with Q♣J♣ for a massive draw. Nelson’s K♠Q♠ was on the edge and the K♣ river gave the pot to Morris.

Down to only 400,000, Nelson was all-in the next hand with 82♣ against Morris’ 9♠6♠ The J♠94♠JJ♣ board clinched the tournament for Morris.

A full winner’s recap will be posted shortly.

Shawn Nelson

Shawn Nelson took it upon himself to bring the field from five to three in Event 13. The first to go was Michael Youngman with Ross Ward following up right behind.

Youngman raised to 275,000 under the gun and Nelson called in the small blind. Nelson moved all-in on the K♠8♠7 flop and Youngman called with K♣10♣. Nelson was drawing with 109♠ and took care of business on the 6♠ turn. No nine on the river meant the pot went to Nelson and Youngman headed to the payout desk.

Ward placed his last 675,000 in the middle with A4 and held three immediate outs versus the A♠10 of Nelson. An ace flopped but no chop outs came with it and Ward takes fourth place.

Three-handed chip counts are below with Nelson playing over seven million.

Dan Heimiller finally found himself in an all-in he could not escape and busted to Ben Palmer.

Heimiller’s 1,235,000 went in from the small blind with A♣8 and Palmer woke up with A♠Q♣ in the big blind. The 10-high board did nothing for Heimiller and he departs in sixth place. The blinds are up and updated chip counts are below along with the remaining payouts.

Michael Walsh

Shawn Nelson is all the way back out of his hole from earlier at the Event 13 thanks to his bustout of Michael Walsh.

Walsh opened the cutoff for 220,000 and Nelson defended his big blind. Nelson checked the 963 flop and Walsh continued for 270,000. The bet was matched by Nelson and the J turn was led by Nelson for 720,000, enough to put Walsh at risk.

Walsh called with K♠J♣ and needed to fade the over and flush draw A8 of Nelson. The 9 river was perfect for Nelson and Walsh departs in sixth place.

Shawn Nelson – 3,250,000

Event 13: Doug Lee Eliminated 8th ($3,998)

Doug Lee

Ben Palmer is the firm chip leader of Event 13 thanks to a great flop that busted Doug Lee.

Lee opened to 250,000 under the gun and Palmer called in the hijack. The A109 flop led Lee to shove for 1,700,000. Palmer confirmed the amount and winced as he called with 10♣10. Lee was drawing near dead with A♠Q.

The 5 turn put chop outs in play but the 4 river was not enough for Lee to catch up.

Palmer is sitting with one-third of the total chips in play with the blinds ready to go up again.

Ben Palmer – 4,600,000

Event 13: Ross Ward Doubles Through Michael Youngman, Youngman Gets Some Back From Doug Lee

Event 13: $340 No-Limit Hold’em DoubleStack $100,000 Guarantee 

Level 29
Blinds: 40,000/80,000 w/ 10,000 ante
Player Remaining: 8/595
Average Stack:  1,860,000

Michael Youngman’s chip lead ceded to Ben Palmer thanks to a double dished out to Ross Ward. Youngman gained most of the chips back versus Doug Lee the next hand.

Ward was all-in for 760,000 with K♠9♣ out of the small blind and had three outs against Youngman’s 99♠ in the big blind. Ward used his “one time” and spiked a king on the K10♠6. One time apparently wasn’t enough as the K hit the turn. The Q♠ river certified Ward’s double.

Picking up the action on a board of J♣9♣6♠7♠, Youngman bet 250,000 from the small blind and Lee called next door. Youngman bet 350,000 more on the K♠ river and Lee beat him to the pot.

Lee waited for a second after Youngman tabled J10 and then mucked his hand.

Michael Youngman – 2,875,000
Ross Ward – 1,580,000
Doug Lee – 900,000

Event 13: Two Doubles Near The End of The Level

Level 28
Blinds: 30,000/60,000 w/ 10,000 ante
Player Remaining: 9/595
Average Stack:  1,650,000

Shawn Nelson and Michael Ward both doubled near the end of Level 28 and are back in contention.

Nelson shoved for 685,000 under the gun with A♠K♣ and ran into the KK♠ of Erika Conea. Fortunately for Nelson, he found major help on the A84♣ flop. The case king did not come and Conea is left with only a few blinds.

Walsh moved in from early position with 88♠ and Doug Lee put Walsh’s 535,000 at risk with K♣Q. No sweat hit the board and Ward is over 1,000,000 once again.

Shawn Nelson – 1,410,000
Michael Ward – 1,110,000
Doug Lee – 1,345,000
Erika Conea – 200,000
