The day after the conclusion of their Championship Event, the World Poker Tour Online series rolled on and awarded two more trophies while looking forward to the next major event on the series - the WPT DeepStacks $3M Gtd Main Event. The first of the two winners on the day was Phillipp Hofbauer who rose above the 290-entry field in Event #44 ($1,050 8-Max) to claim the $59,700 first-place prize. The two-day event was one of the few on the WPT schedule to offer an overlay as players enjoyed an extra $10,000 added to cover the $300K guarantee. Finishing right behind Hofbauer was Enrico Camosci who took home $43,200 as the runner-up. Reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champion Hossein Ensan grabbed the bronze and added $30,300 to his substantial bankroll. In the smaller Event #44 ($109 Mini 8-Max) it was the UK’s Lee Jack who outlasted the event’s 1,067 runners to take home the title and $18,352.40 for first. Brazil’s Gustavo Mastelotto wrapped up as the runner-up and earned $13,145.44 for his efforts. Mats Bruland fell in third place, winning $8,696.05. As those two events were wrapping up, the star-studded Event #46 ($10,300 PLO High Roller) got underway. The two-day event was packed with some of the biggest names in the game and the final table, which concludes on Friday, reflects that. Linus Loeliger ended the night with the chip lead, followed by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Yuri Dzivielevski. Jason Mercier emerged in third place, followed by another online legend, Viktor Blom, in fourth place. The winner will walk away with over $279,000 for first-place. With the Championship Event in the books, players are now taking aim at the WPT DeepStacks Main Event and its $3,000,000 guarantee. There are daily starting flights running right up until the start of Day 2 which takes place on Tuesday, May 26. On Thursday, 299 players took a shot at building a stack with some notable names cruising into Day 2. At the end of the day it was Aram Zobian that finished with the biggest stack followed closely by Russia’s Sergei Denisov and Sean Roberts. Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot and Ryan Chamus also punched their tickets to Day 2 with more than 500,000 in chips. Also of note, partypoker ambassadors Partick Leonard and Kristen Bicknell were joined by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Christopher Oliver in surviving the day.
