Bell, Theuma & Reichard Among Venetian DeepStack Championship Poker Series Winners

Venetian DeepStack Championship Poker Series

The DeepStack Championship Poker Series kicked off on May 22 and continues through July 31, featuring nearly $14 million in guaranteed prize pools across 75 events at Venetian Las Vegas.

Several events during the series feature $1 million GTD prize pools, including Event #53: $2,500 NLH Mystery Bounty July 7 – 9 and Event #58: $1,600 NLH UltimateStack July 12-15. Those tournaments are also among the events on the Venetian schedule which offer reduced rake for early entrants.

Among those to claim titles recently include Brian Altman (Event #14: $800 NLH EpicStack for $37,626), James Van Alstyne (Event #12: $600 Limit Omaha 8/B for $13,257), Aleksandr Gofman (Event #19: $1,600 NLH UltimateStack Freezeout for $154,990), and Thibault Letort (Event #23: $1,600 NLH UltimateStack for $179,408).

Another winner early in the series was Joseph Altomonte (Event #16: $800 PLO Bounty for $26,500), who made headlines less than a week later when he won his first bracelet amidst his return to poker after breaking up with his girlfriend.

Here’s a look at some other notable recent winners of the DeepStack Championship Poker Series.
