It is especially impressive considering that Canadians have made up just 4.76% of the entries for the first 11 events.

The latest winner was Levi Berger from Ottawa. Berger won the $3,500 buy-in Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em tournament. He beat a field of 924 to win his first gold bracelet and prize money of $473,019.
