Another successful DeepStack Championship Event is in the books. This time, our Event #15 $600 NLH DoubleStack $250K GTD attracted a whopping 832 players who created a prize pool of $424,320; nearly doubling our guarantee. Of those, 94 made it to Day 2, and we paid out 90 places.

This was a long and well-played final table with some serious betting and some serious chip stacks. When we were down to four players, a deal was made in which the players agreed to prize winnings based on their chip counts; however, they each gave up 10% of their winnings to create a $20,000 additional prize pool and our trophy for which to play.

When all was said and and done, Jonathan Wong snatched the chip lead from Robert Fulford late in the heads-up match and emerged victorious, winning his agreed-upon $38,815 plus $20,000 for a hefty $58,815 and our stunning trophy.

Congratulations again to Jonathan Wong from the UK.

Congratulations again to the rest of our final table.

10th: Mark Eddleman, $5,940

9th: Hish Salama, $7,638

8th: Simon Deadman, $9,759

7th: Leon Simmons, $12,305

6th: Jerod Smith, $16,124

5th: Ahmed Abdella, $21,216

4th: Travis Dorsey, $50,287

3rd: Hunter Nixon, $35,712

2nd: Robert Fulford, $54,358

Congratulations to Robert Fulford from Canada who finished second in our DeepStack Championship Event #15 $600 NLH DoubleStack $250K GTD winning $54,358.

Fulford was our chip leader at the time the deal was made; however, he was eliminated in second place when he was outkicked by Jonathan Wong in a hand where both men paired their sevens. Wong has a queen, and Fulford had a five.

We are still heads-up. There’s been quite a bit of raising, shoving, and folding. Jonathan Wong has slowly chipped up to become our chip leader with approximately 13 million chips while Robert Fulford has 9-ish million.

Congratulations to Hunter Nixon from Sterling, VA who finished third in our DeepStack Championship Event #15 $600 NLH DoubleStack $250K GTD winning $35,712.*

Nixon was crippled by Jonathan Wong when he mucked to Wong’s top pair; and in the very next hand, Wong delivered the knockout punch when he turned a flush and bested Nixon’s middle pair.

*Prize money by virtue of the four-way deal.

Congratulations to Travis Dorsey from Las Vegas, NV who finished fourth in our DeepStack Championship Event #15 $600 NLH DoubleStack $250K GTD winning $50,287.*

In this crazy elimination hand, Robert Fulford raised from the big blind to 425K, and Dorsey called. The flop came J 4 7. Fulford checked, Dorsey bet 350K, Fulford raised to one million, and Dorsey called. The turn was a 7 and Fulford bet two million; Dorsey called. The river was an A. Fulford checked, Dorsey shoved, and Fulford called. Dorsey’s pocket tens fell to Fulford’s J Q.

*Prize money by virtue of the four-way deal.
