The Venetian Poker RoomAs we approach the halfway point of the 2013 Card Player Poker Tour Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III, the series has undoubtedly been a tremendous success.

The tournaments have ranged between a $200 and $2,500 buy-in and so far, over 13,000 players have entered the the events, generating an overall prize pool of nearly $5.5 million.

There have been quite a few big winners this summer as well. Andrew Moreno scored $53,935 in event no. 33, a $400 no-limit hold’em tournament, when he topped a field of 721 entrants. Mykel Comroe bested a field of 248 in event no. 40, a $1,100 no-limit hold’em tournament and won $58,570. Zachary Korik has had the largest cash so far in event no. 70, a $1,100 no-limit hold’em tournament. He banked $98,274 for defeating a field of 425 players.

Jon Seaman of Mansfield, Texas has been on fire at the Venetian, making three final tables and winning two different events. Seaman has taken advantage of the wide variety of games being offered, final tabling tournaments in triple draw, limit hold’em and Omaha eight-or-better.

Other games offered this summer include H.O.R.S.E., pot-limit Omaha, seven-card stud, triple stud and a number of no-limit hold’em variations.

One of the more popular options has been the no-limit hold’em survivor events being held at the Venetian. Players put up a designated buy-in and everyone competes for a flat, equal payout. It’s basically a satellite, but the players can use their cash however they see fit.

Speaking of satellites, players looking for a discount into the $5,000 buy-in main event can compete in three $600 super satellites, taking place July 12 and July 13.

Last summer’s Deep Stack Extravaganza III main event attracted nearly 400 players and created a prize pool of $1,850,700. There was a tough final table with the likes of Caio Pimenta, Shannon Shorr, William Reynolds, Kevin Saul and Matt Salsberg. Tim West topped them all scoring a prize of $444,165. This year’s main event is expected to bring in more people and generate an even bigger prize pool.

Crewzin - the name is Adelson and certainly you ar enot alone in that sentiment. However as far as this article is concerned the Rio is kicking their butts with the 3PM seeing crows of 1100-1600 players and first player every day of $40K++ for just $235. Cannot beat that.
