DeepStacks Poker Tour (DSPT) has made their 2017 debut in Canada with their first of four scheduled appearances in this country, all in Alberta.
The mid-major tour rolled into Calgary for a 10-day, 11-tournament series at Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. By the time action concluded on Sunday, March 19, Josh Wallace emerged as the winner of the $1,100 Main Event, pocketing $81,861.
This is the largest cash of Wallace’s poker-playing life, though just barely. It was just last month that Wallace won the Winter Super Stack $1,500 Main Event at Deerfoot Inn & Casino just down the road. That win was worth $78,000 and was his biggest cash-to-date.
Winning this DSPT Main Event marks back-to-back wins for Wallace in Calgary tournaments with buy-ins above $1,000.

There was great variety in the other 10 tournaments on the schedule. With buy-ins between $220 and $550, the games varied between hold’em, Omaha, and H.O.S.E. and some were multi-day, turbo, or bounty tournaments.
