The WPTDeepStacks London wrapped up at 888poker with a bang on Monday, April 26 with the second and final day of the WPTDeepStacks #15 – $1,000,000 Main Event.
The event was broadcasted live on the newly relaunched 888pokerTV Twitch channel with hosts Nick Wealthall and David Tuchmann announcing the action with guests throughout the evening.
Dominik “888Dominik” Nitsche Final Tables Another Big Event
It appeared that 888poker Ambassador Dominik “888Dominik” Nitsche was about to find gold yet again at 888poker in this event as he was just one of the well-known players at the final table alongside Tom “sheeeeeeeeet” Hall, Fabiano “FranciscoAI” Kovalski, and Kelvin “Kelvin_kerbe” Kerber.
Nitsche is one of the most recognizable players in poker with four WSOP gold bracelets along with nearly $19 million in live tournament earnings as tracked by The Hendon Mob to go along with at least $7 million in online earnings as tracked by PocketFives.
Back in October, Nitsche wowed the fans by shipping the Millions Superstorm Main Event for $121,146 and he was hoping for yet another big win at 888poker. This was not to be as Nitsche bowed out in eighth place for $21,740.
This was still an incredible score but paled to the $233,705 top prize won by Brazil’s “paulinhoo00” after they bested “AllanSheik” in heads-up play.
The $1,050 buy-in Main Event was just one of the big success stories of the festival with 1,087 entries generating a $1,087,000 prize pool to smash the lofty $1,000,000 guarantee.

WPTDeepStacks London Another 888poker Success Story
The inaugural WPTDeepStacks London at 888poker guaranteed $2 million in prize pools across 16 events from April 18-26.
Players came out in huge numbers with 8,735 entries generating $2,280,730 in prize pools to smash the $2 million in guarantees.
888poker Ambassadors proved they are among the best in the world with many final tables reached between the group. The WPTDeepStacks London High Roller provided some additional excitement with 888poker Ambassadors Sofia “sofialovgren” Lovgren, Dominik “888Dominik” Nitsche, and Vivian “vivi.888.” Saliba all at the final table with Lovgren performing the best of the team in that event with a third-place performance worth $15,500.
Players from Brazil dominated the latter portion of the festival as not only did Brazil’s “paulinhoo00” win the main event but this was not all as players proudly waving the Brazilian flag at 888poker won four of the last five events.
This isn’t to say players didn’t win titles from other countries as players from Latvia, Sweden, Malta, Belarus, Ukraine, Canada, Romania, and the United Kingdom all now have a WPTDeepStacks title to their name.
