After a few months of huge online success, Daniel de Freitas traveled to Las Vegas and repeated the process at the DeepStack Championship at the Venetian Casino. In the early hours of the morning, he sealed the deal in Event 38: $1,600 NL Hold’em Seniors for $102,884.
“It’s been twelve days with no results according to the race schedule. Sleep, exercise…” “I need to study days 13 and 14 to get my first result,” Daniel said in his revealed on social media.
The debate in the game ended with the formation of five-person teams. Daniel, the third-largest chip holder, was awarded a token bronze medal. Johan Lindqvist and David Gutfreund also racked up six-figure payouts, taking home $107,052 and $110,533, respectively.
The Venetian fielded 798 entrants, surpassed the senior team’s $750,000 guarantee and paid out $1,133,160 in prize money.
