2012 Canadian Open Poker Championships

The 2012 Canadian Open Poker Championships are being held at the Deerfoot Inn and Casino in Calgary, Alberta, starting August 22nd and running until September 2nd. Also known as the “COPC” the Championships are a series of 10 tournaments that still hold the record for the largest combined prize pool in Canada!

Along with the ten main events, there will be 7 satellite tournaments running which allow for players working with a smaller bankroll a chance to win their way into the big action. These Canadian Open Poker Championships draw players from all over Canada and some from south of the border as well. This usually means there will be lucrative cash game action happening while the tournaments are taking place.

This year the tournament is “revamped” based on feedback given by the players. The Deerfoot Inn is pulling out no stops in trying to make this the biggest poker tournament series in Canada. We will have to wait and see what types of Canadian poker celebrities the COPC will attract, we do know in previous years Canadian players like Gavin Smith and Yukon Brad Booth have been in attendance.
