Nick “shadowjacker” Guagenti Wins 2020 WSOP Online Event #29: $2,000 NLH Deepstack ($305,433)

Nick Guagenti

On Wednesday night, the 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Series Event #29: $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack attracted 580 players who rebought 167 times. That resulted in a 747-entry field with a $1,419,300 prize pool up for grabs.

After 11 hours of play, it was Nick "shadowjacker" Guagenti emerging victorious to the tune of $305,433.36 and his first gold bracelet.

Guagenti, who hails from Ohio and will turn 36 on August 15, is a longtime poker pro with results dating back to 2006. In the live realm, he's amassed more than $1.3 million in tournament earnings, including a career-best $153,548 for winning the 2014 Queen City Classic Main Event in Cincinnati.

Prior to the win, Guagenti had 52 WSOP-related cashes totaling $682,801 and came close to winning a bracelet last summer when he finished third in Event #87: $3,000 HORSE for $85,265 as well as fourth in Event #18: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better for $140,522. However, his best WSOP cash, prior to tonight, was $145,733 for placing 46th in the 2017 WSOP Main Event.

2020 WSOP Online Event #29 Final Table Results

1Nick "shadowjacker" Guagenti$305,433
2Matthew "EarvinMagic" Parry$189,193

4Brian "BD_out" Deutschmeister$91,261
5Ryan "toosick" Tosoc$65,004
6Vinny "brownmagic" Pahuja$47,121
7Rory "peeeeeeeeeno" Brown$34,773
8James "DanFriel" Gilbert$26,115
9Tom ".beast." Cannuli$20,012

After Jonas "dogfacedboy" Wexler bubbled in 91st place, the in-the-money finishers included Event #27 winner Ian "apokerjoker2" Steinman (70th - $4,399.83), two-time bracelet winner Tony "Panoramic" Dunst (46th - $5,251.41), Joe "fanofdapoker" McKeehen (42nd - $6,102.99), Shaun "ddtgg" Deeb (36th - $6,954.57), Greg "FossilMan" Raymer (26th - $8,373.87), and final table bubble boy Calvin "projector52" Anderson (10th - $15,612.30).

The first elimination at the final table was that of 2015 WSOP Main Event sixth-place finisher Tom ".beast." Cannuli, who actually won an online bracelet back in 2017. Cannuli fell after running ace-six into the ace-jack of Brian "BD_out" Deutschmeister.

James "DanFriel" Gilbert then bowed out in eighth after losing queen-nine to the ace-queen of Matthew "EarvinMagic" Parry, who began the final table as the chip leader. From there, Deutschmeister got lucky with ten-eight to bust Rory "peeeeeeeeeno" Brown, who got his short stack all in preflop with ace-jack. Brown flopped an ace, but Deutschmeister turned a flush for the win.

Vinny "brownmagic" Pahuja and Ari "philivey" Engel then both flopped top pair of queens, and the former got his short stack all in only to see he had a kicker problem against the latter. It didn't get resolved and Pahuja was eliminated in sixth place.

Bracelet winner Ryan "toosick" Tosoc ran fours into Parry's sevens to bring the field down to four, and then Deutschmeister followed him out the door when his king-ten failed to outdraw Parry's ace-four.

The final three jostled for a bit before Engel grew short and shoved the small blind with six-nine only to get called by Guagenti, who had ace-nine in the big. The better hand held and that saw Guagenti take 13.1 million chips into heads-up play against Parry, who had 9.2 million.

The tournament came to an end when Parry got his chips all in after flopping top pair of sevens only to see Guagenti roll over the flopped nuts with a seven-high straight. The turn left Parry drawing dead and he had to settle for second place and a $189,192.69 consolation prize.
