First Place Winner Jeremy Singleton

The 12th Annual Canadian Poker Championships recently wrapped up at Casino Yellowhead, generating a total of $306,929 in combined prize pools over a series of 4 No Limit Hold’em events.

The $500 No Limit Hold’em was once again a multiple day event with the largest starting field, drawing a total of 227 entries. Once again, there were many repeat names claiming the prize money, with Jeremy Singleton taking the top spot; improving on his 25th place finish in the same event format back in January’s Alberta Poker Championships.

Jeremy scored an “official cash” of $29,000 to go with a champions bracelet and trophy after besting this tough field.

Also worthy of mention after repeating on past performances at Casino Yellowhead events in either the $500 or $300 were; Ryan Comely (4th), Calvin “X” (23rd), Holly Berry (8th) and Rick Horseman (22nd), who won the prior $500 event hosted by Casino Yellowhead.

Jonathan Sanborn also continued his streak of final table finishes in the $300’s, which included 1st place finishes in both the Alberta Poker Championships and Western Canadian Poker Classic, with a tenth place finish here.

Congratulations to all the players who cashed, to the Casino Yellowhead staff on hosting yet another well received series and a big thanks to both for letting take it all in snap some photos of the finals.

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.
