A few days after the end of the WSOP, the last major event of the DeepStack Championship Poker Series, the main CPPT event with a $5,000 buy-in ended at Venetian. A total of 564 players took part in the tournament and formed a prize pool of $2,608,500. The winner was Andrey Pateychuk, who received $544,777. Stephen Chidwick also made it to the final table and took the 3rd place with $245,199. Last year he took 4th place in the same tournament.
“I came to Las Vegas in the middle of June, and my first three weeks were terrible,” Pateychuk told after the win. “I mean, really, really terrible. I never had [above] my starting stack in any tournament. I would just fold for five hours and bust. Every day, I would go first to the Rio and bust there. Then I would go to the Wynn and lose a couple entries. Then I would go to Venetian and do the same thing. But then I ran deep in the main event, had a few cashes, and now this.”
