WSOPC River Rock Awards Millions Over it’s 10 Vancouver Events – Final Results

Lincoln Milne

The 2013 World Series of Poker Circuit stop at the River Rock Casino in Vancouver wrapped up on November 8th, after awarding nearly $2.5 million over the 10 live events making up the tournament series.  There are still a number of online events yet to be played on, meaning this 2nd showing for the WSOPc in British Columbia should see that number reach much closer to an impressive $3,000,000.

The biggest slice of the poker pie did of course go to Chillwack’s Lincoln Milne, who bested the 865 player field in the $1,675 No Limit Hold’em to claim more than $253,015 and the bragging rights of taking down the second largest Main Event held on Canadian soil so far in 2013, in terms of participants.

It appears this not only Lincoln’s first major live poker tournament win, but his also his largest live cash by  miles, though we can probably expect to see that total tally rise with his new found riches.

We told you there were some tough final tables in the results for Events #1 through #6 and that didn’t stop in the back half of the series; Homan Mohammad is one fine example, whom after placing 6th in the $580 Event #2, followed up less than a week later with a 3rd place in the Main Event for a total series performance worth around $122,000!

Edmonton’s Ryan “CatintheHat” Snyder (and contributor) also boasted back to back final tables in Event’s #8 and #9, placing 3rd in both for better than $27,000. Perhaps one of the more exciting side event finale line ups of the series came in the $1,125 Turbo Event #8, where 3 handed play found top Albertan Jaspal Brar joined by Ryan Snyder and “@BigJohn88888” Chi Tsun Chan in a talent heavy fight for the ring.  In the end Chan would keep the cash and gold in BC, taking down the tough Edmontonians for the title.

Surrey’s Young “Mike” Kim also had a notable repeat performance with a final table showing in 6th for the Main Event, taking him to almost 6 figures in winnings for the circuit stop so far, having won himself a ring in the inaugural 2012 series.

Rather than ramble on however, we’ll bow out now while you find your friends and favorites in the remaining results below:

35 year old recreational player, husband and father of three from Calgary, Alberta. Enjoy lower stakes cash games including PLO and limit Omaha 8. 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. Writing wise, currently a regular contributor to Poker Pro Canada, like to write profiles, previews and recaps the most. formally wrote for Canadian Poker Player Canada. My Poker Blogs have been featured on CardPlayer Social and SpadeClub as "Recommended" or in newsletters on several occasions and Pokerweblogs as "Blog of the Month".
