The 9th Annual Alberta Poker Championships are all but wrapped up with the 2-Day $550’s final table and the last chance $300 still underway late Sunday; we do however, have the Pot Limit Omaha and $2000 No Limit Hold’em results for you…
With some very steady $25/$50 action leading up to the series keeping the “high rollers” happy at the Argyll poker room, it seemed a shame to waste an open night over tournament week; after enough players put in the request, a $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha was added last minute to the schedule, with seats open for anybody with the guts and the bankroll to enter. A full table of players turned out on Monday night to do just that, hopefully breaking the ice for future things to come and playing until the sun started to rise on Tuesday. It was a very profitable night for a few of them, as you can see here:
January 16th $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha
Total Entries: 10 Prize-Pool: $48,750
76 players kept the PLO action flowing on Tuesday, this time in a $500 Deep Stack, creating a total prize-pool of $37,050. The top 8 took home the cash as follows:
January 17th, $500 Pot Limit Omaha
Thursday January 19th and Friday the 20th played host to the multiple start day $500 No Limit Hold’em Main Event and is still in progress at the time of writing but we hope to post those results Monday. We do know right now that more there were more than 200 entries and Sunday’s top spot is paying $26,000.
Saturday took things up a notch again, this time with another 76 players turning out for the $2,000 No Limit Hold’em Championship boasting a $50,000 top prize, trophy, bragging rights and bracelet. More than 300 players participated in the super satellites leading up to the event, but in the end 8 players once again divvied up a healthy prize-pool of $148,200 as follows:
$500 2-Day No Limit Holdem – January 19,20 (Finals on 22nd)
|12th||$2,100||Rodney James Mason|
With just these 3 completed events totaling $234,000 in prize money, another roughly $100,000 up for grabs in the $500 and Sunday’s “last chance” $300 No Limit Hold’em still left to be added to the tally, Casino Edmonton certainly didn’t disappoint once again for it’s 9th Annual Alberta Poker Championships; pre-series estimates aimed for an estimated $400,000 in tournament prize-pools, based on a total of 600 entries across the events.
$2,000 No Limit Holdem Main Event – January 21
$300 No Limit Holdem Last Chance – January 22
|7th||$937.50||Lance Lee Yuen|
