PCA 2013: Danny Noseworthy wins the Canada Cup
Danny Noseworthy has been crowned Canada Cup Champion after defeating Joseph Stiers heads-up. Already something of an established player, with a list of previous live event cashes including several at the World Series, Danny started today's final table as chip lead and didn't look back.
When play got down to three handed, the remaining players decided to do a deal, with Kyle Myers taking the biggest share based on stack size. The cocktails started flowing soon after - in true Bahamas style - with each player looking noticeably more relaxed now that the money had been sorted.
The deal included $5,400 on top for the winner, but the extra cash wasn't destined to go Kyle's way, as he bust in third place not long after the chop. That left Danny and Joseph heads-up, and it was to be no quick match.
The two players battled for over an hour, with Joseph way out in front for most of the time. Danny eventually found the crucial double up, and ended up fighting his way back to the lead. It was all over soon after, with Danny's A-7 flopping two pair to crush his opponent's K-9. It's a victory worth $40,417 for Danny, making him one of the biggest winners of the PCA 10th Anniversary so far.
Day 1A of the PCA Main Event has been running alongside the Canada Cup all day, with more than 300 runners already having taken their shot at the title. Danny, Joseph and Kyle now get to join them, as the top three Canada Cup finishers also bagged a Main Event package. All three will take their seat tomorrow for Day 1B, and will be looking to build on the success they've already achieved since touching down on Paradise Island.
