Earlier this week, Jeremy Meacham emerged victorious atop the 420-entry field at WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville to win the $1,500 Main Event for $114,551. For Meacham, it was the largest score of his live tournament career, and with the prize came a $3,000 package to the WPTDeepStacks Championship.

“I ran good,” Meacham said in his post-win interview. “I guess it’s my tournament to have a nice little run, and things went my way at the final table. I played pretty solid, tight early on, then opened it up five, six handed. The cards just fell my way and held up in a lot of hands. It’s great. I’m very happy.”

Season 4 WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville Final Table Results

1st: Jeremy Meacham – $114,551
2nd: Trey Walton – $80,060
3rd: Corey Bierria – $51,472
4th: Richard McCrary – $34,501
5th: Mike Murphy – $26,535
6th: Kenneth Williams – $21,991

Meacham began the final table in the middle of the pack. He busted Mike Murphy in fifth place to receive a nice boost in chips, but it was a big double through Richard McCrary that gave him the chip lead with four players left. McCrary opted to four-bet shove with the Jc7c, but Meacham held pocket rockets with the AsAh, immediately called, and held from there.

After McCrary went out fourth, Corey Bierria was bounced in third by Meacham when his Ah3d failed to come from behind against the AdQc.

Meacham entered heads-up play with about a 4-1 chip lead and made quick work of Trey Walton for the victory. The two found all the money in with Walton holding the KsQd to Meacham’s 4d4s. The fours held up for Meacham, and he was awarded the WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville title.

Next up on the WPTDeepStacks schedule is WPTDeepStacks Reno at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa. The $1,100 Main Event comes with a guaranteed prize pool of $200,000 and runs March 24-27, 2017.
