Day 1 of the PokerStars Canada Poker Cup Event #4 $10,000 High Roller began today at 3:00 pm EST in the Playground Poker Room, just outside Montreal, Quebec. When the cards hit the air 14 players were registered. By the end of Level 2 that number had doubled as 14 more had taken their seats bringing the total to 28.
Play will consist of eight 60-minute levels on Day 1 and players will start with 30,000 chips. This is a freeze-out style tournament meaning re-buys or reentries are not permitted.
Some notable Canadians registered include Jonathan Duhamel, Marc Andre Ladouceur, Jason Duval, Sylvain Siebert, Timothy Adams, and Samuel Chartier. Here is a list of the current registered players.
There has only been one casualty so far. Yann Dion had fallen victim to one of poker’s most evil beats, as he was coolered by Samuel Chartier Aces versus Kings. Dion is the first elimination of Event # 4, out in 28th.
