The big winners at the partypoker Ontario Poker Championships
So far we have seen some big wins and exciting plays at the partypoker Ontario Poker Championships
In particular, the half-dozen completed higher roller events saw some thrilling final tables. With the smaller fields, these high-roller events also allowed repeat final table appearances and the accompanying narratives.
For example, two of these events were won outright by “Snoozing.” They won the $530 7-max NLH event and one of several $530 6-max high-rollers, collecting $11.2k for their two victories.
However, the biggest and most exciting event so far was Ontario Poker Championship #53: $530 The High-Roller 6-max. The event fell a little short of its $25,000 guarantee (another bit of overlay for the ICM calculators to account for).
“Alex Schaefer” took the first place prize of C$2,079.31 after beating “bambinno” heads up. They also cashed for an extra C$3,232.66 in bounties.
