Canadians Dominate Two World Poker Tournaments

Fallsview Casino Resort has named 2 new wpt title winners - one for the inaugural WPT Canadian Open and one for the WPT North American poker Championship (NAPC).

Fallsview Casino Resort was home to a combined 793 Canadian and American poker players from October 22-28 vying for the NAPC and the WPT Canadian Open, which has a total prize pool that amounts to $5.7 million.

Among the players were noted poker celebrities Daniel Negreanu, Isabelle Mercier, Gavin Smith, John Juanda, Alan Cunningham, Dan Harrington, Barry Greenstein, Joe Sebok and Brad Booth.

Towards the end, the Canadians dominated the event, with 10 out of the 12 final table players from Canada. An amateur Canadian poker player captured the top prize in the NAPC, while a young American won the inaugural Canadian Open.

"We were thrilled and overwhelmed with the amazing turnout and support of the 2 WPT events from the spectators, press and players," said Greg Medulun, Manager of Corporate Communications for Fallsview Casino Resort. "We couldn't have asked for better results for WPT's first foray into Canada."

The Canadian Open will be shown on television in Canada at a later date. Details of both of the tournaments can be viewed at worldpokertour.com.
