Last we checked, Canada Day was earlier in the year. Our Canadian friends took the day off and did a bunch of Canadian things. We remember it clearly, largely because we were a little jealous.
So, with the above completely understood, you can probably see why we were like, “Wha?” when Team PokerStars Canada blew up yesterday during the Sunday tournaments.
One $215 Mixed Hold’em final table alone consisted of Team PokerStars Pros Pat Pezzin, Greg Debora, and An Van Nguyen. If that wasn’t enough, Pezzin came in runner-up in a fixed limit Omaha event. Outdoing them all was Canadian Team PokerStars Online player Steve Paul who hit the $530 NLHE event for a fifth place finish and $25,863. It was as if someone poured run good in the Canadians drank up.
In news not necessarily related to the Canucks, here are some of the bigger stories that came out of the Sunday tournaments this weekend.
