2012 Stampede Classic Results, Bill Thomson Gets His Poker Harware

0

Continuing on with its steady pace of annual growth, the 2012 Stampede Classic once again packed the house at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino, surpassing both 2010 and 2011 attendance numbers with a respectable 181 players competing in the $1,100 No Limit Hold’em for a total tournament poker prize pool of $171,950.

After nine straight days of twice daily $185 “Go Rounds” qualifiers, players from across the Prairies took to the felts at “High Noon” on July 15th to compete for the traditional Stampede Classic Champions Buckle and some five figure paydays at the final table. The challenge was not for the faint of heart, taking a grueling 16 hours to crown its newest champion and it turned out to be one whose name just seems to keep making poker headlines as of late…

Calgary’s Bill (William) Thomson is hot off the heels of a WSOP final table finish and carried that momentum forward to claim his title and some poker hardware here on home turf. In the past month, Thomson has now officially cashed for more than $126,000 over his last two 1k events.

35 year old recreational player, husband and father of three from Calgary, Alberta. Enjoy lower stakes cash games including PLO and limit Omaha 8. 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. Writing wise, currently a regular contributor to Poker Pro Canada, like to write profiles, previews and recaps the most. formally wrote for Canadian Poker Player Canada.
