Overlay at the DTD Deepstack
Over at DTD in Nottingham the monthly deepstack event featured a £8,200 overlay, as just (How silly does saying ‘just’ sound when we are talking about regularly getting over 300 players) 306 players turned out for the first event of the year. No doubt the weather, post Christmas empty pockets and the PCA played a hand in missing the £100,000 guarantee.
Chris Gavriel was the eventual winner of the £31,183.75 first prize at a final table that included Paul Zimbler and previous champion Michelle Bennett.
