Sam Greenwood Dominates in the Dominican
Punta Cana has been the host for major poker action in recent weeks with partypoker’s Caribbean Poker Party. There was $9 million guaranteed over five events. And Canada’s own Sam Greenwood single-handedly pocketed $1,366,850 of that across three tournaments.
Action kicked off on November 17 with the $1,100 partypoker MILLIONS Open with $1 million guaranteed. With 812 entries, there was a bit of an overlay. German Rainer Kempe took the win, collecting $200,000, but Canadians William Blais (seventh — $22,500) and Vincent Tremblay (eighth — $15,000) were also at the final table.
Also starting on the same day was the $10,300 partypoker MILLIONS High Roller with $1 million guaranteed. The 103 entries played down to a final table with two Canadians present. Pascal Lefrancois ultimately took sixth-place money of $70,000. Sam Greenwood found his first big cash of the series, earning $124,100 for third place. The win went to Norway’s Preben Stokkan for $275,000.
Next up was the $25,500 partypoker MILLIONS Super High Roller with another $1 million guaranteed. The 43 entries surpassed that, and Sam Greenwood was among the final six who made money. In fact, he finished runner-up for $242,750, beat by American Chris Hunichen for $400,000.
Then there was the $5,300 partypoker MILLIONS Main Event with $5 million guaranteed. With 1,061 entries, the prize pool slid a little past the guarantee. One Canadian made the final table. Guess who! You guessed it: Sam Greenwood. He didn’t just make the final table. He won the tournament, earning $1,000,000.
Finally, the $5,300 partypoker MILLIONS Finale wrapped things up with another $1 million guarantee, surpassed by the 215 entries. Spaniard Adrian Mateos found the win for $250,000. The one Canadian at the final table was Marc-Olivier Carpentier-Perrault who brought home $55,000 for sixth place.
Congrats to the Canadian contingent, especially Sam Greenwood, for a great showing in the Dominican Republic.
