The £100,000 Guaranteed Deepstack tournament took place over the weekend at the excellent Dusk Till Dawn Poker Club in Nottingham and it was Caicai Huang who took it down, netting herself £23,400 in the process.
A total of 336 players descended on the Dusk Till Dawn club, creating a prizepool of £100,800 that was shared out amongst the top 36 players making it to the money. The bubble burst in rather unspectacular circumstances thanks to Michael Kossov not turning up for Day 2! His stack was being blinded down and was eventually all in, busting out at the hands of Matt Russell.
With Kossov's elimination each surviving player was guaranteed £450 for their efforts but there was still the £29,689 first place prize up for grabs. Over the next six hours the field was gradually been whittled away then shortly before 20:00 the nine handed final table was set.
Almost immediately after the restart Haroon Hussain's was no match for the of Ashley Smith and nine became eight. He was followed to the rail by Tabraiz Shabir (8th), Oliver Schaffmann (7th), Jamie Andree (6th), and Smith (5th) and when Richard Haile busted in fourth spot the surviving three players, who were almost level in chips, agreed to pay each other £17,000 and then play out for an extra £6,400.
David Trigg was the third place finisher when his short-stacked shove with was called by Huang's . The flop putting paid to Trigg's chances of winning and leaving Huang to face Ian Barnett for the title and the £6,400 extra prize money. The final hand saw Huang limp and Barnett check. On a flop reading barnett lead out with a 200,000 bet, Huang raised to 600,000 then called when Barnett moved all in. Huang showed for two pair and was up against the of Barnett. The turn was the and the river the and with that Barnett became the runner up and Huang was announced as the November £100,000 Guaranteed Deepstack Champion.
