PokerStars Canada Cup readying for finals

ps_news_thn.jpgIn the world of no-brainer decisions, this one has to rank somewhere near the top. If you're a Canadian poker player, you're going to want to reserve this Sunday for the PokerStars Canada Cup final. Not only will you be competing for $250,000 in prize money, but you'll have a chance to win a lot more the Bahamas.

The Canada Cup is a brand new event exclusively for Canadians. The $530 final runs this Sunday at 17:30 ET. The $250,000 guaranteed prize pool is just the beginning of the final. The final nine players in Sunday's event will get a break in the action. When play resumes, they'll be on an expenses-paid trip to the Bahamas where they'll be fighting for the title at a live table in front of the TV cameras.


Not a bad break from a Canadian winter, eh?

So, when it's all said and done, the winner of the Canada Cup will be a TV star, win a Canada Cup trophy, and win his or her portion of the prize money. Oh, and just for fun, PokerStars is throwing in a seat to the PCA High Roller event worth $25,000.

So, Canadians, set aside your Sunday and get ready to play for a chance to join us in the Bahamas this year. If you'd like to get in on the cheap, check out the qualifiers under the Tourney > Regional tabs in the PokerStars software.

See you at Atlantis!
