The WPTDeepStacks festival crowned two more champions on October 18 when the $109 Turbo Knockout and $11 Mini Turbo Knockout concluded. Both champions gave their bankrolls some significant padding thanks to the respective $300,000 and $100,000 guaranteed prize pools.

Jakub Wojtas Wins the WPTDeepStacks #05 Turbo Knockout

More than 2,900 partypoker players bought into the WPTDeepStack #05 Turbo Knockout over several flights, but October 18 was crunch time because the 426 surviving players from those flight converged for the first time and battled it out for the title of champion.

Plenty of big names fell before the seven-handed final table, including the likes of Steven Van Zadelhoff, Jerry Odeen, Rui Ferreira, our very own Jaime Staples and his brother Matthew Staples.

Nobody at the final table took home less than $3,200 when including bounty payments.

Markus Altkirch was the first to fall. Wendel Lauterte, Antti Ahlesten, and Bertil Andreas Samuelsson then fell in succession to leave only three players in the hunt for the title, each having locked up a five-figure payday.

Third place and $17,060 in total went to Russia’s Mikhail Frolov. his exit left Jakub Wojtas heads-up against Vitale Ursu. Both heads-up players were now guaranteed more than $18,100 from the main prize pool, but the final bounty payment tipped the scales at almost $15,000, so there was everything to play for.

The one-on-one battle went the way of Wojtas, and he became a WPTDeepStacks champion and recipient of $32,799. Urus collected $19,005 for his valiant efforts.
