The record setting field of 1392 players battled it out for $2.8 million in prize money at the 2012 Fallsview Poker Classic and we have the results and all the winners for you here.
The Fallsview Casino Resort is pleased that every year the tournament has grown bigger and garnered more worldwide interest in the Canadian tournament scene. It goes to show the kind of foreign talent that was drawn by the large prize pool at the 2012 Fallsview Poker Classic, because in tournaments normally dominated by Canadians, two of the winners were from England.
Local player Steve Howchin from Milton, Ontario took down the $1,000 buy-in tournament and won $150K for first place! Congratulations to Steve for representing Canada!
The $2,500 buy in event was won by Nicky Evans from Brighton, UK who has a lot of experience playing in the UK tournament scene and brought back $300K of Canadian money back with him over the pond.
The $5,000 Main Event concluded after 6 days of play and Tom Middleton from Silsden, UK (pictured above) took it down winning $300K in the process. This is an impressive win for Tom Middleton who is on a hot streak coming off a win at the Aussie Millions 6 Handed Event which took place on Jan. 19th.
