Sonny Sekhon’s advantage isn’t unbeatable, but if he manages to keep on that line he will secure a very nice place on this final table. Having four players from Vancouver makes me think about the importance of being able to see from where do my online opponents are. They can be registered with fake data, but Vancouver sure is a name to remember when having someone at my tables from there, these guys dominate the scene in Canada. Let’s see if it’s someone from there winning this.
