Monday June 18, 2012 : CANADIAN GOLD IN WORLD SERIES OF POKER EVENT 28 (Update)
Burlington's Tim Adams earns his first bracelet
Canadian poker pro Tim Adams entered the World Series of Poker winner annals this weekend after securing his first winner's bracelet and the main prize of $392,476 in Event 28, a $2,5000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em Four Handed competition entered by 750 hopefuls.
Adams, holding a 6 to 1 chip lead, faced a talented and determined Brendon Rube in the heads up after third placed James Schaaf headed for the exit and his $164,823 pay day.
Rube hung in and was rewarded by two double ups halfway through the heads up that narrowed the gap dramatically, but not far enough for him to avoid defeat and a second placing check for $242,458.
Other pay-outs on the final table were:
Anthony Gregg $114,711
Gregory Merson $70,280
Torrey Reily $70,280
Toan Trinh $38,279
Andrey Gulyy $38,279
Jason Koon $25,252
