With the World Series of Poker (WSOP) on hiatus until later this year, the world of online poker has heated back up. Guaranteed prize pools are being smashed and Canadian players are capturing titles on the virtual felt. Check out the top Canadian online results from this past Sunday.
A couple of Canadians got the momentum going right out of the gate for Canada in the $215 Sunday Warm-Up. There were 1,759 entries this week building a $351,800 prize pool. ‘VixenKoala’ picked up $10,242.23 busting in sixth with ‘KatePkrPro’ knocked-out in seventh for $7,364.26.
Canada’s first victory of the day came from the $700 Super-Sized Sunday [Progressive KO]. ‘Darkhors5150’ picked up the win besting 581 players. A heads-up deal saw the Canuck split the top-two prizes evenly scoring *$29,599.16 but boosting his prize with over $6,000 in bounties.
‘EatMyFish’ turned a massive profit in the $11 Sunday Storm. One of the most popular events in the Sunday lineup found the interest of 31,095 entrants this week boasting a prize pool of $310,950. Receiving the second-highest share in a four-way deal, ‘EatMyFish’ was awarded *$22,286.54 hitting the rail in third.
The Big $55 featured a final table domination by Canada. With 3,059 entries and a prize pool of $152,950 Canadian ‘Yayoshow’ captured the title and a first-place prize of $22,071.34. ‘VegasDietz’ and ‘RedPantRed’ made deep runs finishing sixth and eighth respectively taking home $3,901.35 and $1,950.67.
The largest buyin of the day, the $1,050 Sunday Grand exceeded its $225K guarantee receiving 312 entries. Canadian ‘n3xD’ fell just short of Titletown picking up *$47,758 after a deal made heads-up. ‘Roo_400’ bubbled the final table in 10th banking $4,710.82.
Nearing the end of the day, four Canadian players made the final table of the $109 Sunday Cooldown [Turbo].
