WPTDeepStacks London #1 - $200,000 Opening Event

Buy-inDateEntriesPrize pool
$525April 18357$200,000

The first event of the WPTDeepStacks London is now in the books after a total of 357 entries including 65 re-entries got into the action in the WPTDeepStacks London #1 - $200,000 Opening Event at 888poker.

Latvia's "i2out" was crowned the winner after more than 8 1/2 hours in play which included a back-and-forth heads-up battle against United Kingdom's "Tedson89".

It appeared that "Tedson89" would be the player to beat after single-handedly eliminating six out of the seven players at the final table and entered heads-up with a lead. Instead, the British poker player had to settle for the juicy runner-up prize of $29,300 for his return on the $525 buy-in.

Meanwhile, "torresfan03" was on the podium with a third-place finish worth $21,300 and Russia's Maksim "MAMOHT_T" Viktorovich finished just behind in fourth place for $15,420.

The WPTDeepStacks London #1 - $200,000 Opening Event provided tons of value thanks to the $200,000 guarantee providing a generous $21,500 in overlay to the 48 players that min-cashed for at least $1,420.

WPTDeepStacks London #2 - $50,000 Mini Opening

Buy-inDateEntriesPrize pool
$55April 181,373$68,650

The WPTDeepStacks London #2 - $50,000 Mini Opening began one minute after Event #1. As the event title suggests, this tournament was a mini-version of the $200,000 Opening Event with the buy-in reduced from $530 to $55.

The event was a massive success with 1,373 entries including 354 re-entries generating a $68,650 prize pool to smash the $50,000 guarantee.

"Svampnacke" shipped the event to bank $10,030 for a nice return on their $55 buy-in after defeating "Blahaj" (second - $7,332) in heads-up play. "welshdrago48" was also on the podium with a third-place finish worth $5,389.

Malta's "okokok1893" finished just behind this group in fourth place for $3,961 but this wasn't all for this player as they also took 14th place in the $200,000 Opening Event for $1,780.

Adriano "drinho87" Marques (fifth - $2,931) and Grant "Nev3rBluff5" Kinnear (eighth - $1,243) were among the notable players to make it deep but come short of the title.
