Ryan Theriault Wins 2011 Atlantic Canada Poker Championship



Ryan Theriault 2011 ACPC Winner
Ryan Theriault Poses for CanadaPoker to commemorate his big win

The fourth annual Atlantic Canada Poker Championship was hosted over the weekend at the Red Shores Racetrack & Casino in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The event broke attendance records by selling out several days before the start of the tournament.

A total of 320 players competed for a massive $160,000 prize pool. The buy-in was $500 and the tournament ran four qualifying Day 1 sessions of eighty players each. This No-Limit Hold’em tournament event attracted many players from across Canada.

The final heads-up matchup was between Ryan Theriault of Fall River, NS and Kyle Myers of Dartmouth, NS. In the final hand of the match, Ryan was holding :Ah :9h and  Kyle had :7s :Kd. The board was :6c :7d :3s :Td :8h which initially favoured Kyle who had flopped a pair of sevens, but the game of poker is full of surprises and the river card gave Ryan the straight and the victory. Ryan won $40,000 for first prize and claims the 2011 ACPC Champion title. Kyle’s 2nd place finish secured him $24,000. The tournament paid the top 32 players, 10 percent of the field.

Congratulations to all the winners and to the Red Shores Casino staff for hosting a really great poker tournament.
