$170+$30 Deeper Stack NLH
Total Entries: 173
Jiraj Hampton is a delivery driver for a dry cleaner and also part owner of an e-sports team called ‘Hazardous Gaming’. He plays games professionally and carried that competitive spirit into today’s tournament. Undaunted by Deantre Williams’ dominating 2:1 chip lead, Jiraj remained patient and waited for the right spots to get his chips in. One double-up leveled the playing field and before long he had all the chips in play.
He only fired one bullet in this event and says he did well in the cash games yesterday, so effectively was free-rolling this event. Now he’s got $8,415 in his pocket. He was planning to come back next week, but will now have to reevaluate his schedule to possibly play some of the DSC events this weekend.
Today’s event drew a field of 173 runners and created a prize pool of $28,528. That money went to the final 18 players.
