May Deep Stack Poker Series in Review

Cosmin Joldis, Deepest Stack Champion

After a year off, the May Deep Stack Poker Series made a return to the Poker Room with eight tournaments featuring more than $500,000 in guarantees. It was a successful series by any measure with thousands of players and $1.38 million awarded over the 12-day series.

Cosmin Joldis

The 2021 May Deep Stack Poker Series rolled out its headliner on May 27 and the $1,700 buy-in Deepest Stack tournament featured a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. It drew 398 entries and Cosmin Joldis conquered a very tough final table to take home the title along with more than $120K.

There were three starting flights for Event 5 and the 398 entries pushed the $200,000 guarantee up to a prize pool worth $597,000. The last 50 players earned a piece of that prize pool with defending champ Paul Domb taking the 50th spot.

The tournament structure gave players plenty of room to make moves with 50,000 starting stacks and Day 1 levels that last 40 minutes with them going up to 60 and 90 minutes as the tournament progressed.

Day 2 saw 109 players return plus another 19 who bought in before the restart. The slow structure meant there were still eight players remaining in the early morning hours of Day 2 and they returned for Day 3 to play out the final table.

It took more than ten hours to settle the matter but Cosmin Joldis went into heads-up play against Steve Karp holding a big lead. Most of his stack came courtesy of a double knockout; he eliminated both Stuart Greenbaum and Richard in the same hand, sending them out in third and fourth respectively.

Karp put up a fight but the deficit was too great. Joldis defeated the South Florida pro and took home $120,410 for the title while Karp had to settle for his $80,250 runner-up score.

Congrats to Cosmin and thank you to all our old friends and new for another tremendous series.

Final table results:

1st: Cosmin Joldis – $120,410
2nd: Steve Karp – $80,250
3rd: Stuart Greenbaum – $58,985
4th: Richard Zipes – $43,880
5th: Jason Wandling – $33,045
6th: Rafiki Brown – $25,190

Rafael Lima, Event 8 champion

The last tournament on the May Deep Stack Poker Series schedule was a custom fit for our regular weekly tournament crew. Event 8 drew 161 entries and Rafael Lima was the last player standing for the outright win.

Those entries created a prize pool near $20,000 for the $150 buy-in tournament with the last 28 players paid out. They played deep into the evening and early morning hours until Lima had all the chips to walk away with $5,134 for the win.
