Becker, Larson, Haven & Nguyen Among Venetian DeepStack Extravaganza IV Winners

The DeepStack Extravaganza IV series kicked off on November 20 at Venetian Las Vegas and wrapped up back on December 24. The 57-event series offered more than $2.1 million in guaranteed prize pools, but wound up awarding more than double that.

Even though two events were canceled due to large turnouts in marquee tournaments, the series still catered to a combined 8,893 entrants and awarded $4,702,041 in prize money.

Among those to claim titles were Danny Vo (Event #18: $400 NLH Epic Stack for $4,727), Steven Perkins (Event #24: $1,100 NLH Epic Stack for $45,174), Jeff Kirby (Event #32: $600 NLH Epic Stack for $25,416), and Dominic Coombe (Event #52: $600 NLH for $36,092).

Heres a look at some other big winners from the DeepStack Extravaganza IV.
