2011 Harvest Poker Classic Event 4 $700 NLH


The final event of 2011 Harvest Classic at Casino wrapped up early this morning, after 222 players started out on Saturday for Event #4, a $700 No Limit Hold’em.

The eventual winner is no stranger to fierce competition, stamina, and chasing championship rings; Chris Getzlaf is not only a Slotback for the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders, his brother Ryan also plays in the NHL for Anaheim’s Might Ducks…we would have to say Chris knows all about the spirt of playing for the title.

This was Getzlaf’s first win and third major tournament cash in Regina, having finished twice previous just outside the final table. His first place finish here earned him $36,978 dollars; the rough average of an annual Rookie starting salary in the Canadian Football league. Chris has been in the CFL for 4 years now, so we’ll assume he’s making out better than that, though it’s also safe to say this little raise and win came with a bit of an adrenaline rush of it’s own.

The 4 event series more than met it’s combined projected prize-pools; coming in at $559,910 or about 12% higher than expected. Every field attracted 180 players or more, from across Canada and the even northern States like North Dakota. Event #2 was won by David Colland of Carrington ND, while Steve Berger of St. Anthony ND also cashed twice over the series.

While we want to congratulate all the players who played and made the money, 2 players definitely deserve special mention over this series; Event #1 winner and Regina local Rick Eberts backed up his $27,435 first place finish with another final table in Event #4, adding another $8031 to his haul. Calgary’s Ron Campbell scored the most loot by a single player in the tournaments at the 2011 Harvest Classic; after a late night resulting him in winning the $1100 Event #3, Campbell dragged himself back to the felt to make another early morning final table; this time finishing 3rd here for another $15,500. All told Campbell pockets better than $55,000 for the series.

A big thanks and congratulations to the staff at Casino for hosting another top notch series and be sure to check out our Day 1 and Day 2 photo galleries of the players and venue.

Any of the micro-stakes HORSE games will play online MTTS and SNGs. Live, Tournaments and Satellites up to $550. I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
