Scott Baumstein started his 2018 with a major win at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida in the WPTDeepStacks Hollywood Main Event. Baumstein outlasted a field of 1,366 entries to win $223,238 and collected 1,200 WPTDS Player of the Year points in the process. The win, coupled with two more cashes, gave Baumstein 1,350 points on the campaign and he finished the season as the WTPDS Player of the Year.
For his efforts during the calendar year, Baumstein collected a $20,000 WPT passport, good for buy-ins across WPT Main Tour, WPTDeepStacks, and WPT500 events from January 2019 to April 2020.
This year’s WPTDeepStacks Player of the Year race kicks off once again at the Seminole Hard Rock. Players this year can expect to see similar prizes up for grabs when the current season ends in May 2020 in Thunder Valley.
The WPTDS POY package includes a $10,000 passport to be used at global WPT events along with up to four nights of accommodation at select WPTDS properties. Second place in the WPTDS Player of the Year standings earns a $3,500 passport and third place takes home a $1,500 passport.
For the next year and a half, Baumstein is the WPTDeepStacks Player of the Year and started his title defense at the Seminole Hard Rock this season.
Congratulations to Scott Baumstien!
