PokerStars Canada Cup Main Event Champion – Robert Notkin $366,660
The Craziest Hand Ever Played

Notkin was crushing his three opponents and as the board ran out, destiny and fate were with the Doc. The dealer fanned and Robert Notkin scooped the massive 17.3m chip pot, $366,660 and the PokerStars Canada Cup Main Event title.
