PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Canada Cup Results & Some Canadian PCA Highlights

0

The 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is already proving to quite exciting and we wouldn’t want you to miss any of the highlights when it comes to Canucks at the PCA; the $100,000 Super-High Roller finished with several of our own making the final table and cashing 6 figures, the Canada Cup winner has just been crowned and a fistful of Canadian players now approaching the money and Day 3 of he $10,000 Main Event.

In what has been jokingly dubbed as the “Januar-eh 9” by PokerStars Blog writer Brad Willis, the 9 finalists of the Canada Cup took finally took their live seats on TV table today. For those that may have missed it, last October more than 400 Canadians ponied up $530 for their shot at a trip to the Bahamas and the title; while the tournament started online, the final table was paused and virtual chip stacks “bagged” until a winner could be decided today.

Maybe to add a little “Canadian tradition”, all of the players where sat wearing the respective hockey jersey of their home region and it appears it was the Calgary Flames who dominated the event presence wise; with 4 of the players sporting their colors.

Calgarian Jeet Shergill began the day as chip leader, though in the end the title would be going back with another of the cities’ locals as David “Dick_Fosbury” Labchuk continued on some other pretty major recent poker success; now adding the Canada Cup title and some nice cash to his card playing resume.

As part of the first place prizing, David will also be playing in the $25,000 2012 PCA “High Roller”. Here are the full results:

1st David “Dick_Fosbury”   Labchuk $47,500 + $25k Seat
2nd Luc “107tiger” Lafontiene $35,500
3rd  Travis “TraVision” Wiggle $25,625
4th Jeet “Sharpy59” Shergill $19,500
5th Savesh Ram “serbie” Pershaf $13,500
6th Qi “quihu00” Hu $10,625
7th Benjamin “Spektah” Leblond $8,125
8th Adrienne “ Talonchick” Rowsome $5,625
9th Andrew “Virgo005” Virgo $4,150

You can see how things stacked up, including starting stack sizes carried forward from the online play leading up to the finals in our prior PokerStars Canada Cup recap.

The $10,000 Main Event seen an impressive 1,072 entries over the Days 1A and 1B, with just 188 players remain as Day 2 came to a close. The money spots should hit fairly quickly tomorrow, with 160 places paying at least $15,000 and a massive $2,000,000 top prize.

Montreal’s Eric Cajelais is amongst the chip leaders for Tuesday’s action and is apparently on his “A Game”; having already had one final table finish at this years PCA worth more than $38,000 for 3rd in the $5,000 PLO.

Plouffe was the last Canadian standing in the 2011 PCA Main Event and will certainly be looking to improve on that final table finish this year.

It’s still a long way to the top for most of the guys (and gal), but things are just getting good, so be sure to check back soon!

That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
