After Black Friday, many poker players from the United States moved to Canada to continue playing in the major rooms. Once up there, they were in for a huge challenge against the abundance of great talent north of the border.
In the November 20 edition of Titan Poker’s $40,000 GP Super Tuesday R/A tournament, three Canadians battled it out for the first prize, capturing three positions at the final table and then finishing in the top two places.
A total of 187 players paid the $100 + $9 buy-in to join the action, which lasted for nearly nine hours.
“p0000cket0000″ was eliminated in 8th place, when his A Q ran up against the A 9 of fellow Canadian “DosPerros” and another nine dropped on the flop. For finishing in 8th place, “p0000cket0000″ won $1,410.
In heads-up action, “DosPerros” had a 2-1 advantage in chips over compatriot “betsamesame” but that lead was not to last. Holding A 8, “DosPerros” pushed all-in on an unhelpful flop, but “betsamesame”, holding Q T, already had a pair of queens, and that held through the river, giving “betsamesame” the tournament lead.
“betsamesame” pushed all-in frequently through 25 more hands, trying to trap “DosPerros”. On the final hand of the tournament, “betsamesame” again bet all his chips pre-flop holding 9♠ T♠, and “DosPerros” called with A♠ 7♣. A nine on the turn sealed the victory for “betsamesame”.
For his first place finish, “betsamesame” received $10,199 while “DosPerros” was compensated with $7,238 for placing second.
