Day 1 Completed
Early Tuesday afternoon, 64 players took a seat inside Playground Poker Club for the 10th event of the World Cup of Cards. The $110 Dealer's Choice 8-Max was on the agenda and there was at least $3,000 guaranteed.
Each hand the player on the button selected the game type for that hand. The choices were no-limit hold'em, pot-limit hold'em, pot-limit omaha, 5-card PLO, no-limit pineapple, and no-limit crazy pineapple.
When registration closed a total of $6,208 was up for grabs and the top seven spots would get their slice. When the final table of eight was formed however, they all agreed to ay the bubble $20 each. Dave Jeanneau-Cyr took the chip lead into the final table and did not relinquish it for a single hand on his way to capturing the champion's trophy and a top prize of $2,038.
Here is a breakdown of the prize money distribution:
