Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, marked the kickoff of the December Deep Stack Series and reload bonus on WSOP.com in Nevada and New Jersey.
While we will tell you about the first event of the series in just a moment, we'd like to remind you that there's still plenty of time to take advantage of the December Reload Bonus on WSOP.com. From now until Dec. 31, the site is offering a 100-percent reload bonus up to $500. Just make your next deposit using the code "YEAREND" to claim your bonus.
On WSOP.com in Nevada, the first tournament of the seven-event December Deep Stack Series nearly tripled the guarantee. The $20 buy-in event boasted a $1,000 guarantee, but that was shattered as 156 players generated a prize pool of $2,886. Of those in the field, the top 20 spots made the money, with a min-cash being worth $37.51.
Finishing on the money bubble in 21st place was "shelley5." The remaining 20 players then fought it out for nine spots at the final table and a guaranteed score of $69.26. When it was all said and done, "TooManyDogs" was the champion, earning the $779.22 top prize.
