After coming onto the Main Event final table as one of the shortest stacks, Cliff Green came from behind out of nowhere to create a commanding chip stack, and carried it all the way to a win. He was responsible for eliminating four of the final-table players and managed to confuse and outplay his competition in pot after pot.
Green has a tremendous record of success in events like this in Alberta and the surrounding provinces. Now he can add the title of CPT Summer Showdown Champion to his resume, and he pockets $59,800 for the accomplishment.
