Scott Rist – Event 29: $600 Omaha 8-or-Better $100,000 Guarantee – $29,297

The first multi-day Omaha event of the DeepStack Championship Series brought out 274 steel-wheelers to compete for the $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. Scott Rist entered Day 2 as the chip leader and finishes the tournament inside the winner’s circle.

Rist’s path to victory took him on a few ups and downs as he battled against the field. Sergey Zaprorozhets was the chip leader for most of the final table but Rist hung with him and never gave in. Rist survived a few all-ins to stay alive and took the lead heads up after picking off a Zaprorzhets bluff. A few hands later, Rist sealed the deal to collect the $29,297 first-place prize.

This is the first win for Rist at The Venetian and we hope to see him back for more Omaha events this summer.

Sergey Zaprorozhets

Heads up play between Sergey Zaporozhets and Scott Rist swung back and forth due to the high limits. Rist caught a Zaporozhets bluff and then finished him off a few hands later to win the title.

Rist raised and Zaporozhets three-bet. Rist called and fielded bets on the 1084♣ flop, K♠ turn;, and 9♠ river. Rist’s K♥Q♥6♥2♠ was good after Zaporozhets mucked.

The final hand featured Zaporozhets getting his last bet in the middle on a 8♠5♠2♠ flop. Rist had a flush Q10♠6♠2♠ and Zaporozhets was drawing almost dead with J♣J10♣9♣. The 4 turn sealed it and Rist wins Event 29.

Terrence Haslooo

Three-handed play did not last past 20 minutes as Terrence Hasloo exited promptly in third place.

Hasloo was all-in for a bet preflop and Sergey Zaporozhets along with Scott Rist had Hasloo at risk.

Zaporozhets turned over a wheel and Hasloo’s hand went into the muck.

Rist and Zaporozhets made a deal before heads up play started. Both locked up $23,500 and left $5,797 to play for.

Sergey Zaporozhets – 2,200,000
Scott Rist – 1,850,000

Yuebin Guo

Yuebin Guo’s stack swung all over the place in the Event 29 final table and the last stop was zero. Guo lost a pot to Sergey Zaporozhets and then was all-in for less than a big bet the next hand.

After the 10♠42♣J♣5 board was dealt, Zaporozhets rolled over A♣1093♣ for the wheel. Guo peeled over his cards and then mucked.

Terrence Hasloo is the short stack to start three-handed play with 675,000.

Sergey Zaporozhets – 1,950,000

Scott Rist

Sergey Zaporozhets was in the lead for most of the Event 29 final table but that title now belongs to the start of final table chip leader Scott Rist. Rist found river value from Yuebin Guo and took down a meaty pot.

Guo raised the cutoff and Rist defended his big blind. Rist check-called on the 73♠2♣ flop, Q♣ turn, and then check-raised to Q river. Guo paid off the raise and Rist turned over 4♣43♣3 for a full house. The cards of Guo went into the muck and Rist took the pot.

Scott Rist – 2,100,000
Yuebin Guo – 725,000

Mack Lee

Another perennial short stack moves on from Event 29 with Mack Lee dust in seventh place.

Lee called all-in for 65,000 in the hijack and Scott Rist raised to isolate on the button.

Lee: AK♠7♠2
Rist: A85♣4

The Q♠8♣6J2♠ board nullified any low and Rist’s better won the pot.

Scott Rist – 765,000

Eric Pratt

The short-stacked Omaha final table loses another one with Eric Pratt on the rail. Scott Rist picked up some chips from chip leader Sergey Zaporozhets to reduce his lead over the field.

With Pratt all-in preflop for less than a big blind, Rist and Zaporozhets were heads up to a A♠Q10♠ flop. The street checked through and Zaporozhets bet the Q♣ turn. Zaporozhets bet the 4♠ river and Rist raised. Zaporozhets folded and Rist turned over A♣K♣Q♠10 for a full house. Pratt mucked and Rist took in the pot.

Scott Rist – 1,200,000
Sergey Zaporozhets – 2,100,000

Event 29: First Two Exit From Omaha Final Table

Level 24

Players Remaining: 8/274
Chip Average: 515,000

The final table stalemate is at an end with Ross Campo and Rylen Sanehisa hitting the exits in consecutive hands.

Ross Campo

Adam Haman raised the lojack and Pratt called in from the cutoff for 65,000. Campo called all in as well from the small blind for 25,000 and the two players were at risk.

Haman: AJ♠52
Pratt: Q864♠
Campo: Q9♣7♠6♠

The Q10♠878♣ board netted Pratt a full house and Haman a flush. Campo’s straight was no good against both hands and he earns $2,399.

Rylen Sanehisa

Sanehisa departed versus Terrence Hasloo. Hasloo limped in middle position and Sanehisa called all-in.

Hasloo: A♣10♠64
Sanehisa: A♠9♣8♠2

The KQ6♣2♣6♠ board delivered Hasloo trips and the elimination.

Event 29: Yuebin Guo Down to 10,000, Sergey Zaporozhets Over 2 Million

Level 23
Limits: 40,000/80,000
Players Remaining: 10/274
Chip Average: 410,000

Sergey Zaporozhets is up to 2,150,000 chips after taking a sizable pot from Yuebin Guo on the river with Guo folding down to 10,000 as a result.

Rylen Sanehis raised in early position and Zaporozhets called the hijack with Guo calling the button.

Sanehis checked the Q♣10♣5 flop and Zaporozhets bet. Both of his opponents called and Zaporozhets bet again on the J turn. Sanehis folded and Guo called to the 3 river. Zaporozhets bet again and Guo took two minutes before folding what he said was a series of missed draws.

Guo, Ross Campo, Eric Pratt, and Mack Lee are all under 100,000 with the blinds up again.

Event 29: Ross Campo & Mack Lee Survive All-Ins

Level 23
Limits: 40,000/80,000
Players Remaining: 10/274
Chip Average: 410,000

The expected all-ins happened at the start of Level 23. Ross Campo and Mack Lee both found salvation and have at least another orbit to hang around.

Campo was all-in from the small blind for 15,000 as Scott Rist and Yuebin Guo limped in from early position. Lee checked his option and the 109♣2 flop checked around. Lee moved all-in for 20,000 on the 3 turn and both opponents called.

The J♣ river checked and Campo showed AQ♠8♣5 for a straight to capture the main pot. Lee’s 54♠33♠ won the side pot and the two players live on for now.

Mack Lee – 90,000
Ross Campo – 60,000
