Rob Taylor Wins Casino New Brunswick's Annual Poker Bowl

Rob Taylor Casino New Brunswick Poker Bowl

Atlantic Canada enjoyed a headline poker event this past weekend with Casino New Brunswick's annual Poker Bowl. This always-popular event in Moncton, New Brunswick sells out fast, and this year was no exception.

There were 57 players who paid the $1,100 buy-in on Sunday, January 25, and six of them shared the $57,000 prize pool. When the dust settled in this one-day tournament, local Rob Taylor was left sitting with all of the chips. His victory earned him $22,230.

Coming in second was Paul Mohorea, who you may remember for winning one of Casino Montreal's $1,100 Série Royale de Poker events last September — a win worth $29,745.

These are all of the in-the-money finishers in the first major Maritime tournament of 2015:

With this event barely in the books, Casino New Brunswick has already announced their next major tournament. The Maritime Meltdown is a three-day, $550 tournament with two starting flights to allow for a larger field. The action kicks off on March 20 and registration opens as early as February 1.
