    Canadian wins No Limit Texas Hold 'Em top prize

    Canadian poker player David Ross White of Abbotsford, British Columbia beat out a starter field of 784 players in the second major tournament run by the River Rock Casino, a short drive from Vancouver International airport.

    It took three days of tough competition in the $2 million No Limit Texas Hold 'Em event last Sunday, but after a total of 32 hours play White collected the winner's prize of $600 000 and an expensive watch.

    I feel fantastic, said White. I think well use this money to pay off some debt and go on a holiday. Were going to have a great time!

    Players from Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia and the Yukon, and from as far afield as the US states of Florida, Texas, Nevada, California and Washington were attracted to the big money tournament.

    The response we received from players and spectators at this years tournament is truly remarkable, said Brian Lynch, BCLC Vice-President of Casino Gaming.

    Well-known players who competed in the tournament included Gavin Smith, who finished 27th, Brad Yukon Booth and poker legend Johnny Chan.

    Alaskan Derrick Law finished second, taking $290 000 back to his home in the Yukon.
