Scott Baumstein Wins WPTDeepstacks Hollywood


Scott Baumstein beat Lumni Zhuta in a back-and-forth heads-up match to win WPTDeepStacks Hollywood.

The Lucky Hearts Poker Open at Seminole Hard Rock is well under way, and one of the big events of the series wrapped up Tuesday night when Scott Baumstein claimed the $1,100 WPTDeepStacks Hollywood title.
