$125+$25 Deep Stack NLH
Total Entries: 174
Before play entered level 29, the final three players made an ICM adjusted payout agreement resulting in Chuck Bryant taking 1st place — again. He won this same event during the June 2017 DeepStacks Challenge Series (in a heads-up adjusted payout) and has now done something that very few players have ever accomplished — winning the same event in back-to-back years.
Chuck teaches US history and game theory back home in Berwyn, PA and likes to come to Borgata during the summer to play the tournaments. He said it takes “lots of luck” to win against the “very good players” he faced today. Getting pocket Kings at least three times late in the day helped as well.
He’s now got a second ‘Baby Borgata’ trophy to go with his first from last year — bookends for his mantle. He’ll be back next week for some more DeepStacks Challenge events!
Event 2 of the DSC Series drew 174 entrants, just one more than last year. The total prize pool of $21,098 well covered the $15,000 guarantee and was paid out to the final 18 players. * Indicates Adjusted Payouts.
