2011 Harvest Poker Classic Day 2 Winner David Koland
2011 Harvest Poker Classic Day 2 Winner David Koland

The 2011 Harvest Poker Classic continued strong with the second event, an $800 No Limit Hold’em Freezeout. There were a total of 185 entrants creating a prize pool of $133,200. For many of the players in attendance, this was not their first year playing the HPC. The tournament series has managed to attract a very loyal player following throughout the years.

The winner of the tournament was David Coland of Carrington, North Dakota who drove more than 600 kilometers to outplay this strong field of players. David will be driving back to the States with at least $35,531 in winnings.

Finishing in 2nd was Sheldon Birkeland of Regina. Sheldon has placed in the money in several events here at Casino Regina. With this 2nd place finish he beats his best previous finish which was 4th place at the 2011 Station Poker Classic $800 NLH Event.

Other notable finishers included Jimmy Paulenko from Winnipeg who came in 5th who has already won an HPC Event back in 2004 and is a regular at the Series. Ryan Comely from Edmonton, who earlier this year won the Station Poker Classic $800 NLH Event, was hoping for a win in the HPC, the sister event to the SPC but had to settle for a 13th place finish.

Here is the full list of winners.

Congratulations to all!
