Americas Cup of Poker

"When we raise our kids in Canada, the first thing we teach them is poker," joked John "tinajohn9" Mehrassa, member of the repeat Americas Cup of Poker (ACP) champions, Team Canada.

The Canadian team, led by returning team captain and PokerStars Pro Greg DeBora, goose-egged Team Mexico in the finals, en route to earning their second ACP title in as many years and $25,000 in prize money.

"This (ACP) is a really fun event because you're part of a team and you're representing your country. Everybody played hard and did well. Once again, Team Canada came through!" said DeBora after the final match.

AMERICAS CUP OF POKER FINAL RESULTS

1st: Canada ($25,000) 
2nd: Mexico ($20,000) 
3rd: Venezuela ($15,000) 
4th: Brazil ($12,000) 
5th: Argentina ($10,000) 
6th: Rest of Latam ($8,000) 
7th: Colombia ($5,000)

Henry "EasyChips4u" Wong of Team Canada had perhaps the most memorable of all ACP experiences. According to DeBora, one of his teammates from last year's ACP -- Brian Flood -- introduced Wong to the game of poker.

"Out of the tens of thousands of people that tried to qualify from Canada, Henry ended up qualifying this year!" DeBora explained.
