The 14th Annual Canadian Poker Championships wrapped up this past week at Edmonton’s Casino Yellowhead Pure Poker Room, attracting nearly 750 entries and awarding more than $380,000 in prize-pools over the 6 event tournament series.
Richard Jones was the biggest winner this time around, hauling in an impressive $46,100 for besting the 169 player field in the 1k Main to claim more than 10 times his previous major tournament earning in one sweet scoop.
Runner up Calvin “X” Anderson added another roughly $25,000 to his growing career total of nearly $170,000 in tournament winning in around the West, including a final table finish at the 2012 WSOPc Vancouver last fall worth more than $57,000.
Right behind Mr. “X” was local hero Jaspal “DoctorB911” Brar, continuing to tack onto what many would consider a “breakout” year, after several very deep runs in both WSOP & WPT events in the past 12 months, all told totaling well over 6 figures.
Also of note from the series is the yet again top performance of Quentin Siffledeen, who both placed 5th in the Main as well as scored the trophy and win in the $500 Six Max event; an impressive follow up on his $40,000 Deerfoot Inn & Casino Summer Super Stack Main Event win just a few months ago in Calgary, these latest results now taking him over 6 figures in live tournament winnings.
