Great Blue Heron Charity Casino 2012 Island Poker Series Results


Great Blue Heron Charity Casino 2012 Island Poker Series $2,100 No Limit Hold’em Event; Update and Results:

Whether or not many of Ontario’s big buy-in players had already headed south to the action of Las Vegas, or left a little shorter in the bankroll than they expected over last month’s barrage of online poker series; attendance was less than anticipated at the inaugural Great Blue Heron $2,100 Island Poker Series. The 25 players, who did turn out on game day however, had no complaints and undoubtedly brought their no holds barred, “A” game to the felts on Thursday.

Even with generous starting stacks of 15,000 in tournament chips and 30 minute blind levels, the fist ten players were eliminated in the first 6 hours, with blinds just hitting the 400/800/25 level. It took until level 19 and another 4 hours of play to determine the tournaments winner, with 3 players taking home some considerable returns on their investment. Had the event reached its field cap of 120 players, play was set to be paused at Level 22, with the remaining entrants returning to 45 minute levels for Day 2.

Here are the final results from the May 31st, Great Blue Heron Charity Casino 2012 Island Poker Series $2,100 No Limit Hold’em Event:

1st    Angelo Rumeo $25,000.00 Woodbridge, Ontario

2nd   Jacob “vekked” Meyer $15,000.00 Paisley Hill, Ontario

3rd    Ngoc Nguyen $10,000.00 Brampton, Ontario

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.
