Huck Seed wins 2008 COPC
Huck Seed finally has a heads-up tournament win under his belt after taking down the main event of the 2008 Canadian Open Poker Championships in Calgary, Alberta.
The 1996 Greg Mueller and Gavin Smith were in the lineup.
In the end it came down to Seed versus Booth for a best-of-three match that lasted more than five hours before Seed finally triumphed.
"This was an amazing tournament in terms of both structure and quality of players," Seed said. "I love it when the cream rises to the top, and I get a chance to play with the best in the world. I am so happy that I finally won a heads-up tournament."
Seed takes home $100,000 for his win. The top eight players in the event were:
|5th||Nghi Van Tran||$20,000|
Hachem, the 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion, was eliminated in the quarterfinal round of the CPOC main event, but still had good things to say about the tournament.
"This is by far the best heads-up tournament I have ever played in, and I will definitely be back next year," Hachem said. "The structure is much better than the World Series or NBC Invitational with the best-of-three format and terrific blind structure."
Along with the main event, the COPC features four other tournaments, including a charity event. The winners of those events were:
- $500 Charity Event: Jody Lewchuk
- $1,500 Event: Steve Paul-Ambrose
- $1,000 Event: Bradley Ginet
- $500 Event: Harey Hammoud
All told, more than 600 players turned out for the five events of the Canadian Open Poker Championships, creating more than $700,000 in prize money.
"I am very pleased with the success of the event," said Kelly B. Kellner, HeadsUp Entertainment president and CEO. "The staff at the Deerfoot Inn and Casino were amazing and that is reflected in the comments from all of the players."Related Articles:
