With the elimination of Tim Miles in third place, Phil Hernz and Filipp Khavin agreed to a chop in which Herz takes home $47,000, Khavin takes home $45,000 and the two would battle it out for the extra $2,769, POY points, & $3,000 championship package. The two exchanged hands back and forth for nearly 30 minutes before Hernz raised the button to 130,000. Khavin defended the big blind and the two watched as the dealer spread a flop of J♦T♦7♦. Khavin checks to Hernz, who continues with a bet of 165,000. Khavin thinks about it briefly before he calls and both players see the 3♣ hit the turn. Again Khavin checks and again Hernz bets, but this time its for 500,000. Khavin moves all in and Hernz calls. Khavin: 8♣9♦ Hernz: A♥J♥ Khavin flopped the nut straight and has Hernz drawing dead. A meaningless 10♠ hits the river and Khavin takes an overwhelming chip lead, as Herz is left with just 100,000. A few hands later the two got it all in again. Khavin: 8♠3♥ Herz: K♣4♠ The board runs out 9♦T♣7♦2♥J♣ and Filipp Khavin takes home the title of WPTDeepStacks Immokalee champion!
Phil Hernz will take home $47,000 for his second place finish here in Immokalee and Khavin is headed to Calgary for the $2,500, $500,000 guarantee DSPT championship event in December! Here is a look at the full list of results from the final table.

California, South Florida, Malta, and Pennsylvania Kickoff Jam-Packed Season 3 Schedule
Los Angeles, CA (September 10, 2015) – Hot on the heels of Season 2, where eight records have already been broken and the tour has generated more than $8 million in series prize pools, WPTDeepStacks has announced the first four stops for 2016.
Season 3 of WPTDeepStacks will feature new, major stops to our domestic schedule, continued international growth, and increased guaranteed prize pools for Main Events.
The action kicks off in Los Angeles from January 2-11 at the HUSTLER Casino, which features the $1,100 buy-in, $300,000 guaranteed WPTDS-HUSTLER Main Event.
Immediately following the LA festival, WPTDS jets across the country on January 14 to South Florida for our largest event ever: the $1,100 buy-in, $1 million guaranteed, WPTDS-Hollywood (FL) Main Event at the world-renowned Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
In late January, WPTDS touches down in the Mediterranean at Dragonara Casino for the second-annual WPTDS-Malta series. In 2016, WPTDS-Malta will feature a longer poker festival with new and exciting events and larger buy-ins.
From there, WPTDS returns to the United States and visits PARX Casino®, right outside of Philadelphia, PA. WPTDS is partnering with the massively successful BigStax brand to create the first-ever WPTDS-BigStax series from February 10-29. The 20-day series features a wide array of exciting events including, the multi-flight, $300 buy-in NLH event and the $1,600 buy-in, RFID live-streamed Main Event.
“WPTDeepStacks and its casino partners continue to deliver a world-class experience at a very affordable price point,” said WPTDeepStacks President Chris Torina. “The first four stops of WPTDS Season 3 are a testament to the hard work of the WPTDS staff and our casino partners, but mostly it’s due to the great poker players that keep coming back to our events. We pride ourselves on being the premier mid-major poker tour in the world, and we look forward to giving players one of the best tour schedules in the industry in 2016.”
The full Season 3 schedule will be released November 2015.
Located in beautiful San Diego County, Ocean’s Eleven is the premier gaming destination in the area. Boasting 50 tables of exciting action, Ocean’s Eleven also features some of the highest jackpots and friendliest staffs in the state. With over 50 big-screen televisions, a sports lounge, racebook and bar, it’s easy to see why Ocean’s Eleven has been the area leader for entertainment for over 17 years.
