Venetian DeepStack Extravaganza II Winners

From April 3-May 21, Venetian Las Vegas hosted the DeepStack Extravaganza II poker series, which offered more than $2.2 million in guaranteed prize pools across 70 events. At the end of it, the series catered to 7,226 entrants and awarded $2,821,878 in prize money.

Among those to claim titles were Jessica Vierling (Event #10: $400 PLO for $5,168), Karapet Galstyan (Event #46: $800 NLH Mystery Bounty for $43,649), Brendan Shiller (Event #49: MonsterStack Throwback for $5,042), and Tuan Mai (Event #61: $400 NLH UltimateStack for $20,295.

Additionally, Lucas Tae, Ivan Ruban, and Kao Saechao each claimed two titles during the series. Tae bested a 91-entry field to win Event #19: $400 EpicStack for $6,534 and later was victorious in the 100-entry Event #51: $400 NLH Epic Bounty for $3,842 plus bounties. Ruban topped Event #11: $400 NLH EpicStack for $8,700 and nine days later emerged victorious in Event #25: $400 NLH EpicStack for $7,789.

Saechao won three titles in a series earlier this year and picked up another couple of victories with a win in Event #56: $300 NLH Bounty and then another win in Event #59: $400 Big O just two days later.

Here are some other notable winners from the series.

Dan Sepiol Defeats Red-Hot Jeremy Becker

On May 17, Event #64: $500 NLH EpicStack saw 71 entrants battle it out on the felt for a $29,962 prize pool paid out to the top nine finishers.

It would have been no surprise to see Jeremy Becker at another final table as the red-hot player won eight tournaments during the month. However, Becker fell just short of another victory when he finished runner-up to the victor, Dan Sepiol.

Notably, Sepiol won the tournament with the same hand Becker is usually seen holding in his winner photos: five-three offsuit.

Samy Dighlawi found himself in the winner’s circle three times during the DeepStack Extravaganza II series, beginning with a victory early in the series on April 4 when he topped a 70-entrant field in Event #3: $400 NLH EpicStack for $3,810.

He would again find himself with all the chips in a tournament at the end of the month when he bested a 77-entrant field in Event #40: $500 NLH EpicStack for $8,179 on April 30. He defeated David Howard (2nd - $5,495) in heads-up play and navigated through a final table which comprised of Andrew Rodgers (5th - $2,502) and Lucas Tae (9th - $1,079).

His Event #40 win wouldn’t be his last of the series though, as he claimed a third title just days later on May 3 when he took the $9,147 first-place prize over an 89-entrant field in Event #44: $600 NLH EpicStack.

Among those who cashed but fell short of the final table were Rommel Liscano (11th - $1,285), Steven Stowe (14th - $1,079), and Alexander Nachtwey (15th - $1,079).

Ultimately, Young defeated David Erisman in heads-up play to claim the title and $14,608 first-place prize, as he continues to collect victories in tournaments of all stakes.
