CANADA Cup of Poker @ Full-Tilt

Play for your Province in the Canada Cup of Poker

Represent your Province in the Canada Cup of Poker. Seven teams from different regions of Canada will battle it out on TV for a share of CAD145K. The winning team will play against the Full Tilt pros for a chance to win up to CAD250K.

Original Tournament Style

The Canada Cup of Poker is a new kind of tournament where teams play relay-style with a community stack, rotating “on the button”. You play as an individual, but win or lose as a team.

The Prize

Seven teams of three will fly to Toronto this August to compete in the televised final table. All teams will take home prize money, with the winning team splitting CAD75K. All three members of the winning Canada Cup team will go on to play heads-up against Full Tilt Pros for up to CAD250K.

For full details, please see the Canada Cup of Poker Rules.


Qualify for the Canada Cup of Poker

 To qualify for your regional team, you must either (a) be a resident of one of the Provinces in that team or (b) have been born in one of the Provinces in that team.

got killed going all-in with a str and falling to a full house ---  finished 32


It was ugly today, bugger calls my preflop raise with J9 o/s, hits a J on the flop and wouldn't let it go against my Ace of clubsAce of hearts, turns blanks, so of coarse the river is a Jack of spades!!!

The biggest P/O of it all is that 7/9 were all sit-outs!!! And when I looked in to see how you were doing there SS, your table was the same7/9 s/o's, pretty sad considdering it's a winner take all event!!!

After last weeks fiasco & last nites good run in one of the $5000/5ptr (430/13206), I'm feeling good & won a couple of small pots early (again mostly s/o's), I'm in the BB & have Ace of clubsKing of diamonds & I have a guy who is raising preflop every hand (4x's BB), so I come over him betting pot & he re-raises all-in, I call he's got Ace of heartsJack of clubs, the flop comes up blanks, turn is nothing, but of coarse the river is a Jack of spades....out again, man I hate winner takes all Mtt's!!!
