Canadian players and fans of poker experienced mixed feelings in the last GGPoker events. While kept out of the Bounty Hunters HR Main Event, they simply dominated the Top 3 of the final table of Sunday 500 High Rollers.
Although not as spectacular, their performance on Super MILLION$ is also noteworthy. Some names worth being highlighted are David Coleman, Jason Koon, Nick Petrangelo, Sam Greenwood, and Timothy Nuter. However, they deserve more than a mere mention.
Overall Performance of Canadian Poker Players
Positive and negative surprises are part of every GGPoker competition, and it was not different this time. Before the attention of every poker player goes to the Super MILLION$ Week from February 28 to March 7, it is worth saving the overall Canadian performance of the past week in the memory.
Summary of the Canadian Accomplishments on GGPoker
The best performance of Canada’s poker players was definitely on the Sunday 500 High Rollers. David Coleman, Jason Koon, and Nick Petrangelo achieved, respectively, the first three positions in the final table ranking. All three places together took home over $239,500. The compact competition had gigantic players among them, such as David Yan and Anatoly Filatov.
Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet guaranteed his third place in the Turbo Series 03: $5,200 NLHE 8-Max event and won even more than Jason Koon and his 2nd place in the aforementioned event. He was busted out due to a deal between Michel Dattani (Malta) and CrazyLissy (Russia).
As for the Super MILLION$ final table on February 23, some results were quite surprising. Against the odds, Niklas Astedt was the first to be busted with his small stack. Canada’s Timothy Nuter followed him, again surprising those who believed he would go deeper than the same eighth place granted on November 1, 2020.
However, Sam Greenwood, from Toronto, gave Canada its 6th place and took home $123,468. He did not get there before losing several key hands and going down to 4.5 big blinds. Brazil’s Dzivielevski, who fell while granting the 4th place, was responsible for sending the Canadian home with a jack and a deuce on the flop.
What is Next?
Given the deserved attention to the performance of Canada’s poker players, the next event on GGPoker to follow is the $30M GTD Super MILLION$ week. It is the holy grail of the high rollers at GGPoker. It kicks off with a total of seven events on February 28, each one giving out at least $1 million.
Now, for those who want to accompany more than the GGPoker, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) is about to be broadcasted.
