BC Poker Championships in Full Swing

0

The River Rock Casino has been the place to be for Canadian Poker players this past week seeking to play in one of the top poker tournaments that a Canadian poker room has to offer. Already we have seen two out of three events being sold out.

The first event, the $550 No Limit Hold’em attracted a field of 496 poker players contributing into a $248,000 prize pool. After four days, when it was all said and done the winner of the event was Terence Lai who travelled from Mississauga, Ontario to cash in for a $55,899 first prize. He was runnered-up by Carter Newhof from Mercer Island, Washington who goes back to the USA to celebrate American Thanksgiving this weekend $35,241 richer. He can buy the prize turkey with that kind of cash. In 3rd place was Kwong Wai Au of Kamloops, BC who took $21,874. Payout scales allowed the top 45 finishers enjoy a money finish.

Event #2 was the $1,100 No Limit Hold’em event which attracted a field of 647 poker players. The 63 top poker players divided a total prize pool of $646,988. The top 3 finishers we’re Yan Ho-Lee of Richmond winning $139,493, Preston Partridge of Shawnigan Lake winning $89,339, and Andrew Tai also of Richmond who took home $56,368.

A full list of winners can be found below.

Today is the first day of the much awaited $2,700 Main Event. Final satellites were run last night at the price of $220 and today we can expect to see some great action. The team of CanadaPoker.com will be on hand. You can expect to see player interviews and a lot of great pictures in our photo gallery so visit often.
