Paul Brar Wins DSPT Edmonton for $85K

Paul Brar DSPT Edmonton Casino Yellowhead DeepStacks Poker Tour

DeepStacks Poker Tour (DSPT) returned to Alberta less than two weeks after their Calgary series wrapped it. They set up shop at Edmonton’s Casino Yellowhead this time, offering eight events across 11 days.

The series culminated in a $1,100 Main Event with a $300,000 prize pool guarantee. With a final tally of 455 entries after three Day 1s, that guarantee was left in the dust as the total came to a purse of $432,250.

Coming out on top was Paul Brar who earned $89,715 for the win, easily becoming his best tournament result.
