For those that don't know what The Royal Cup Of Poker is, it is basically a team poker event that is played by teams of 8 players each. 4 team players play Stud and 4 team players play Pot Limit Holdem to start off the day. Then all members play Limit Holdem, the No Limit Holdem, and then each team captain sets up Heads Up matches. All formats are played like a single table sit and go and each player receives points for where they finish at their table, and the team with the most points at the end off all 4 events wins the Royal Cup Of Poker.
I was fortunate enough to be on a solid team from Ching Hill in Brampton as we took down this event with 252 Points. I was also named MVP of the event as I won my PLO, LH, NLH, and HU Table for a perfect score. I was pretty excited with my performance as I never really play that much Omaha or Limit Holdem.
The next Royal Cup should be in the fall sometime. If you are interested in finding out more about this event you should go to http://www.pokerforum.ca and click on te Royal Cup sub message board.
If was definately a fun day of poker and very well organized.
