Scott Baumstein Wins WPT DeepStacks Hollywood

by GS Admin Posted on 19 Jan, 2018

The World Poker Tour (WPT) DeepStacks Hollywood Main Event took place between 11th and 16th January 2018, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood. This is one of the more famous WPTDS stops and the tournament series had a guaranteed prizepool of over $1 million.

The main event was a $1,100 buy-in, which was ultimately won by Scott Baumstein, who bagged $223,238 for the top prize. Baumstein fought a field of 1,366 entries before finishing as the winner and securing his first WPTDeepStacks title. “I feel good, I’m just glad it’s over. It was a long day, I ran well, and that’s what you have to do to win poker tournaments,” said Baumstein to WPT after the win.”

Apart from the $223,238 in prize money which became his career best live cash, Baumstein also wins a $3,000 WPTDeepStacks Championship prize package. This was his first win of 2018 and he has now taken his career live poker earnings to $1,833,668.

The toughest challenge came in heads up, where Baumstein faced Lumni Zhuta. In the final hand, Zhuta went all-in pre-flop holding 6-3 and Baumstein called it, holding A-Q. The cards opened K-9-5-9-5, giving both players no further assistance and giving Baumstein the win with A-high. He became the champion of Season 5 of WPTDeepStacks Hollywood.
