  • Canterbury Park First Weekend

    First, I want to rethank Mike (Idoru99) for the great home game on Friday night. Its my second year here in Shakopee for the Fall Classic and my second visit to Mike’s house full of cats (as opposed to cathouse), good games, nice tables, great nibbles, and a very cool trophy, which a managed not to win or even come close enough to view.

    Canterbury Park has improved from last year’s event. There is a separate tournament area in the back instead of the extra tables set up in the lobby. Again Dave & Jimmy are here to run the events making it very professional. Even the buffet has been upgraded and you get two meal coupons for each event you play. They really are running a quality tournament. Ring games are spread at all levels, except NL, which is illegal in Minnesota.

    Saturday was a $300 Limit event, as far as I could see AlanLeach and I were the only PSO entries. 188 total players, I heard several times from locals that ‘you don’t get 200 over $200 at Canterbury.’ Well that was true for today anyway. Mike (Idoru99) dropped by to cheer us on, however, Alan and I would both like to announce that it was a lovely, warm afternoon in Shakopee and we both were able to take nice long walks, hell we could have run a double marathon.

    Sunday was a $300 NL event with 267 starters. Alan will need to provide exact details but I believe he went out around midway. I struggled with a shortstack for most of the mid-afternoon after losing most of my stack with AKo to another AKo. Then I doubled up on a real mistake by another player right about midway. Made two questionable calls playing for my tournament life that also doubled me up at 80 and 60 players. And then climbed and climbed my way to the final table and 6th place ($3885). OK I might have made a good play or two on way, maybe.

    I will say to the Tunica crowd that the pace is a bit slower here; there is a casino nearby that I shall visit and include in my next report. But I guarantee OilDoe that no one is trying to “do” anyone here.

    That's great on the 6th place finish Tim! Nice cash out! See you tomorrow.

      Great job on the final table/cash finish! That's gotta feel good. I hope to get out there tomorrow. Hopefully will see you guys out there. Save some of those payouts for me! :wink:

        WOOHOOOO ZEROTH!!!!!!!!! AWESOME finish

        I may be stumbling down on Saturday to try my hand at the Women's Limit Hold'em event, not because I excel at Limit Hold'em, but because they are giving the winner of the event TWO awesome free rides into future tourneys, one being the Women's event at the 2005 WSOP. So, I figure for $120, I might give it a whirl!

        I am so very proud of musta done something good somewhere along the way!

          Way to go Tim! Now do that again in another event or two! Whoo Hoo!

            Great Job Tim!!!!!! It was a pleasure meeting you and look forward to future money reports from you in the future

              Well that is lovely news, indeed. Losing with Ak vs Ak is brutal - but it sounds like you played a ferocious short stack game.

              Congrats, big boy!

              But I guarantee OilDoe that no one is trying to “do” anyone here.
              Sounds like a great place to have a quiet morning cup of coffee!

                Great job Tim

                I was present to watch Zeroth represent PSO well and to earn a good paycheck for his outstanding play at Canterbury. He is truly a very good player and consistently fares well at these tourneys. Tim, great job and the tune up at Canterbury in the four tournaments that i played in and didnt money and Mike's outstanding and fun pre tourney warmup party served me well as I won last thursday's NLHE tournement at the Mirage in Las Vegas. I will write a more lenghty trip report on that one as JDM also won much money in the two tourneys that we played.

                Great job, Zeroth, Moe and Jane in Canterbury.
