Macieji “Mitch” Stachura, a 5th year accounting student at UCONN, won the $500 No Limit Hold’em Event of the 2012 DeepStacks Poker Tour at Mohegan Sun. The event was hosted by Kevin “KevMath” Mathers.
During heads-up play Mitch offered a chop with Erik Guzowski.
Mitch entered the Final Table with 300K in chips and just before the dinner break had 1.7 million. Right after break, he lost 600K in 2 big hands. At one point he was down to less than 500K.
On the very last hand of play, 4- handed, Mitch was on the button with pocket 4’s, called all-in’s and hit the 4 on the turn giving him a full house. Knocking out 2 players.
Mitch would like to thank Mike “The Mouth” Matusow for talking him into re-entering the event. Mike knocked him out and encourged Mitch to re-buy into the tournament.
When asked if he would play the Main Event on Saturday, Mitch said “I can’t…I have Finals next week, otherwise I would”.
Nesrine goes all in on her small blind, followed by an all-in by Stu then Mitch calls,
Nesrine – Ax 5x
Stu – As Qs
Mitch – 44
Flop – Kx Ks 10s – giving Stu a Royal draw
Turn – 4x – giving Mitch a full house
River -3s Mitch knocks out Nesrine in the 4th and Stu in 3rd.
