Tony Comely wins DSPT Edmonton Main Event for over $81,000; Tops 420 entries at Casino Yellowhead

Tony Comely (pictured) topped a field of 420 players at a final table that was just under five hours long to win the DeepStacks Edmonton Spring Main Event on Monday at Casino Yellowhead. He took home $81,200 in prize money, which included a $3,000 DSPT Championship package.

“It feels pretty good, it’s a long time coming – overdue,” said Comely right after the victory. His career earnings now stand at $292,448. Comely continued, “It’s awesome. The staff is great, you guys are great, everyone here is great.”

“I got an early double up to take the big chip lead, and then I lost a huge pot where the guy hit a three-outer on me, and then I sucked out once after that and I got back in it, and here we are,” said Comely when he was asked about the roller-coaster ride his chip stack went on throughout the day.

Comely was also excited to win a seat in the DeepStacks Championship that will take place in Calgary in December. “You will see me there, yep. Time to get drunk,” said Comely enthusiastically to finish off the winner interview.

Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and two players busted quickly in back-to-back hands. Damian Minev was out in ninth, and Tony Nguyen fell in eighth. Things then settled down for a while before Ian Alvarado hit the rail in seventh.

Brieanne Chetek was able to double up a few times at the final table, but she ultimately busted in sixth place. Kris Steinbach was out next in fifth place, and he was followed to the rail by Dwayne Reid in fourth, and Haven Werner in third.
