For the second year in a row, Canada has won the Americas Cup of Poker. After two days of battling against various teams from across North and South America, the Canadian team has emerged triumphant yet again.
Each of the seven teams competing in this year’s competition had a professional poker player as a coach. Canada’s coach was Greg DeBora, a native Torontonian. DeBora is a well-known poker player in the market and has cashed as the World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour several times over the course of his career.
During the first round of the tournament, all teams competed in a series of Sit and Gos. Canada, Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico made it to the semi-finals, where Canada beat Brazil 5 to 0. Mexico defeated Venezuela with a score of 4 to 1, making for a very exciting final round.
In the end, it was Canada that emerged triumphant. The team earned $25 000 for its win, while Mexico took home $20 000 and Venezuela won $15 000. All teams that entered received a prize for entering, with last place’s Columbia earning $5000.
For the past two years, Canada has been proving itself as a force to be reckoned with in the world of poker. Some of the world’s best pros are from here, and even amateur players are proving themselves to be formidable competition in the poker market.
