It's great to read about the players doing well in this mega series and hopefully my day will not be too far away!!! When you see players winning big from a very small outlay, it gives us all hope for the future

Canadian players play very well poker but many of them are of American origin or from other parts of the world. Sam Greenwood is a very good Canadian poker player and its results have demonstrated this. He succeeded a beautiful performance and his talent is very large. He did very good games in his career.

well this tournament didnt bring so many players and thats why prize pool isnt so big,when you look on buy in and how big is!ofcourse is nice money for first place,but when you invest 5200 dollars,you would expect to have bigger prizes!congratulations to winner!

Of course the result is wonderful .... winning more than $ 150,000 is always remarkable results .... but given the fact that the entry fee was $ 5,200 there was a big risk of not getting anything and spending big enough money .... my congratulations

Good for him, congrats in order or whatnot etc. Altough he payed 5k for the opportunity of making a one-time 30x ROI it seems the rest of the guys in the top10 did not get the chance to win that much of money at all.

You cant says that the buy in of a 5k USD tournament had a great result
as a prize for the first place, but still a very good amount.
Not much info though on how that 11 USD turned out to a bit more than
5k USD...

Yeah it always baffles me on these tourneys - it's harder to get onto the final table than to take it down at the end yet it pays like mediocre either way.

Always very good feeling to win some tournament, but when it is big money for first place is always better than win some 10 cents buyin tournament for prize of about 10 dollars. So it is luck very important to win when prize is big and nit when small

For me the feeling of winning a tournament is not so great, if the prize is a small one and if the players are few. I did not win any tournaments with over 700 players and real money. Instead i won over 10 freerolls games between 700 and 2460 players. The feeling would be very good if i won a tournament with over $ 25k and great with over $100k but this is very difficult. If the time would allow us to learn more strategy then chances would increase.
