The last event of the 2013 Casino Regina Station Classic, a $700 No Limit Hold’em that attracted more than 200 runners certainly did not disappoint. Saskatoon’s Ryan Smith finally earning his ring. At Regina’s 2012 Station Poker Classic, Ryan placed 2nd in both $650 Knock Out and $1,100 Main Event, obviously not satisfied with second best, he booked the win this time around. Smith also cashed in 5th in Event #1, making for a final table rate of 50% over the past two Station Poker Classics.

Local Lindsay Flannery has also proven to have a seat reserved at the Station Classic’s final tables, with double top ten finishes this series, for 4th and 6th respectively in the $600 and $700 events totaling more than $12,700. At the 2012 Station Poker Classic, she also finished 9th in the $800 NLHE, giving her an impressive 37.5% final table finish rate for this series over the past few runnings.

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.
