Looking back on 2016 as it comes to a close, we’re featuring our top 10 articles from the year to show the highlights of poker in Canada in 2016. These are decided on the very simple measurement of which articles were read the most.
The third-most read article of the year was the news that Chris Bowers won the Diamond Poker Classic Main Event at Casino Regina.
With Casino Regina now offering three annual poker series, Bowers racked up an impressive run of events in the three series in a row. He final-tabled the Main Event in all three starting in November of 2015 with seventh place in the Harvest Poker Classic, improved that to second place in March’s Station Poker Classic, and the third time was the charm with a win in May’s Diamond Poker Classic.
