World Cup of Poker: Team Canada's SirWatts and tilterino
You may already know that two members of Team Cananda's World Cup of Poker and Team are a father and son. Now, meet two other members of Canada's Newfoundland team, SirWatts and tilterino.
I'm a 23 year old poker pro from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. I've been playing poker for three years. My biggest tournament score is $75K for first in the Super Tuesday tournament on Pokerstars, and I've also won the $100 rebuy on Stars twice for around $23-24K.
In the World Cup of Poker, I was happy with my play. I won my first round match and finished second in the National finals round against very tough competition. My second round table was very tough, I outlasted zangbezan (imper1um) but finished second to ocrowe who are both well respected online tournament players.
It's been fun, but Spain will be obviously be the best part. I can't say I ever thought I'd get the chance to represent my province or country in any kind of International competition, so I'm definitely looking forward to that, as well as just meeting the other guys on the team and having fun in Barcelona.
I'm 25 years old and from Newfoundland. I play mainly online due to the non-existant live poker scene here. You can usually find me on PokerStars or hanging out with my girlfriend, Michelle. I really enjoy travelling & meeting other poker players. I've been playing poker for a little less than two years. I was fortunate enough to win the $162 $100,000 Guaranteed twice and chop heads-up a third time last year. That felt pretty good!
Once in Spain, I just basically want to have a good time and get to know the other players. It would be fantastic to have a good showing at the event, though. Best of luck to us all.
