Michael Tureniec

Michael Tureniec extended his chip lead against Scott Stewart and made another move with a shove from the button. Stewart called for his final 3,600,000 and it was a race.

Stewart: 9h9c
Tureniec: AdJs

Stewart was ahead for the double but Tureniec connected immediately on the AsKh6d flop. Stewart needed a nine but the 8d turn and 6h river ended his day and the tournament.

It did not take long to settle on a WPTDeepStack champion this afternoon. It was 28 minutes for those keeping score.

Congratulations to Michael and everyone else who made the tournament a success.
