West Coast Poker Championships, WCPC Events 2-4 Results


Events 2 through 4 have wrapped up since Sunday at the Vancouver Edgewater Casino’s West Coast Poker Championship and we have those results for you.

Already, about $147,500 in combined tournament prize-pools have been awarded over the first 4 events, with a total of 476 entries over the series so far. The really big money is yet to be played for however, as the multiple starting day $1500+$150 No Limit Hold’em Main Event gets underway on Thursday.


Wednesday will start building the pot, with a $165+$15 Super Satellite for the championship. One for every ten players will be awarded entry into the $1650 total buy-in tournament.

Getting into the results so far, it seems that last year’s Main Event winner Daniel Skolovy was gunning hard to add the Mixed PLO/NLHE title to his WCPC resume. According to @PokerEdgewater on twitter, Daniel entered Heads-Up play against Steve “Coach” Wong with about a 2.5-1 chip advantage. Wong had other ideas however and soon chipped his way back up to even. The players decided to take $12,000 each, leaving in more than $1,100 and the title to play for. Not long after, it seemed that Daniel was willing to concede the win and be happy to walk away with an even chop, leaving the “Coach” with the bragging rights in the event for the “official” results. Congratulations to both.


Matt Jarvis was also among to more recognizable names at the $500 final table, though denied the win in this event once again after 2nd place finish in it last year.

Any of the micro-stakes HORSE games will play online MTTS and SNGs. Live, Tournaments and Satellites up to $550. 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.
