Maybe it's not the largest, most well known site out there, but SupremePoker.com is about to get placed in the minds and computers of Canadian online poker players. On October 16, SupremePoker.com will be hosting the Canadian Series of Online Poker.
The "series" is actually a single event. A $100 buyin no limit hold em poker tournament. The plans are already in the works to add at least 2 more events for the 2006.
With this being the first official year for the CSOOP, the tournament organizers have enlisted the aid of some well known Canadian poker players in hopes that others will want their chance to step up and compete against them for the CSOOP, which unlike most tournaments, will be mailed to the winner. The celebrity players include:
David Scharf, Devin Armstrong, and Kevin Malarek. The official homepage of the event http://www.csoop.com is listing a "mystery celebrity" which will only be revealed closer to the event date. We can only speculate who that may be.
Don't have $100 to pony up and play along side these Canuck card slingers? SupremePoker.com is holding daily "satellite" tournaments. A smaller tournament for $10, where the winner gets their entry into the main event covered.
So, what happens if you're an American that would like to take the trophy south of the border? Can you play? According to the event organizers, you can.
"While the event is aimed at Canadian players, has a Canadian name, even a maple leaf on the trophy we don't plan on enforcing Canadian citizenship in order to participate," said one organizer.
"It would suck if someone other than a Canadian won it," said Jeff Roth of Ontario who plans on taking part in the event.
