River Rock Casino Final 9 Set for WSOP-C Vancouver & 99 Payout Results


Only 9 players of the 1032 entry field now remain for the World Series of Poker-Circuit Main Event at the River Rock CasinoResort in Vancouver; more than $286,000 and some hefty bragging rights await one of them on November 7th.

Everybody remaining is now guaranteed an at least $28,236 finish, though Sonny Sekhon seems pretty serious about claiming the win after finishing both Day 2 and 3 as the chip leader.

Look out for the man sitting third in chips however; we have a decently solid feeling that if Calvin Anderson is indeed the Edmonton player usually listed as “Calvin X”, the rest of the table will have their work cut out for them.

Just 30 players remained at the start of Wednesday’s play, but it still took a shift at the felts to bring it down to this:

  1. Sonny Sekhon – 4,660,000
  2. Ryan Biermann – 3,085,000
  3. Calvin Anderson – 2,755,000
  4. John Crnic – 2,415,000
  5. Tyler St. Clair – 1,960,000
  6. Mal Hagen – 1,735,000
  7. Michael Collins – 1,595,000
  8. Justin Ciolfitto – 1,490,000
  9. Glenn Sullivan – 1,010,000
Sonny Sekhon


With blinds at 25k/50k and a 5k ante, the shortest stack sits with about 13.5 BB and an M of less than 9, the chip leader at 62 BB and nearly 40 M deep, we should expect to see some quick eliminations before the big money hits.

No matter what, it will be an exciting day as the first ever WSOP-C Main Event ring ever is awarded on Canadian soil.

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.
