2012 10th Annual Edmonton Poker Classic Results


Casino EdmontonThe 10th annual 2012 Edmonton Poker Classic wrapped up on this fine September Labor Day weekend and we have those results for you. Despite some players choosing to take advantage of the final summer long weekend when they might normally take to the tables, as well as having a competing series scheduled across the EPC’s regular schedule just a 2.5 hour drive for the first time, all was not lost for the 4 events held at Casino ABS Edmonton (Argyll). A respectable $241,774 in prize-pools was awarded over the series, not bad at all when considering players seemed confused on where their best bet for poker was in Alberta was this past weekend and were caught up in the decision whether to hit the north or south bound lanes of the QE2.

Cash game action over the Edmonton Poker Classic was not surprisingly reported as full of the deep stacked low limit action players have come to expect from the ABS groups $500 maximum buy-in for it’s low stakes ring game tables and with a $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha on the schedule, we are quite sure the big games had more than enough action to keep some massive pots changing hands.

Those that did participate were rewarded in all the events were rewarded with 4 and 5 figure final table prizing, with Event #2 breaking the 200 player mark for attendance. Players can also expect the larger fields, top player treatment and large pay-days that Edmonton’s ABS Group tournaments have built a reputation for over the past decade. The 13th annual Canadian Poker Championships at Casino Yellowhead take place beginning September 26t; don’t miss out!

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.
