calgary poker tournaments that took place in 2010

A number of Calgary poker tournaments took place in 2010. The Canadian felt saw a number of poker pros rip through the competition, but some lesser-knowns also made their mark on the Calgary poker scene.

The first of the Calgary poker tournaments in 2010 to kick-off took place on New Year’s Day, January 1st as the Holiday Freeze Out competition begun its $220 buy-in at the Cash Casino. First place went to Garland Aubigne, who walked away with a cool $7000.

January 6th saw the CPT Monthly Poker Challenge take place at the Grey Eagle Casino. The $400 buy-in afforded Terry Barrette a 1st place prize of $11,000.

The number 13 may be unlucky for some, but January 13th proved to be a lucky time for Lorne Voth; he finished in first place for a whopping $8,300 in Event 1 of the CPT Kick Off Series. Event 2 of the same tournament, which took place on January 14th, saw Ron Follgard take $12,500 for his first-place win. Event 3 – the Pot Limit Omaha challenge which took place on January 15th, had a first-place prize of $9,800 that was awarded to winner James Gibson. Event 4, which had an impressive 1st place prize of $18,000, was won by Aaron Caldwell.

These four events culminated in an intense Event 5 that kicked-off on January 17th. The CPT Sunday Kick Off Series, which had a buy-in of $225, took place at the Deerfoot Inn Casino. MarcWilson walked away the winner of the event, taking the $8,800 spoils for his first place finish.
