After three days of poker action on the US/Canada border along the Niagara Falls, Demo did not go overboard in a barrel. The Canadian survived swimming with Canadian and Northeast sharks to win over $517K in Canuck bucks. That's a hefty $383K score in Yankee bucks.

The 2019 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic had a $5,000 CAD buy-in. A total of 602 runners took a shot and the prize pool topped $2 million CAD. Only the top 76 places paid out.

Ben Underwood, Marco Mannella, Jason James, Stpehen Johns, Jeff Roe, Hoang Quach, Paul Chang, Ryan Rivers, Ping Liu, Pat Lacy, Jean-Pascal Savard, Daniel Le, Peter Jetten, Brian Altman, Lucas Greenwood, Omid Shahbazian, David Williams, Ali Brate, Tim Rutherford, Jin Woo Sin, Andrew Chen, George James, Jason Xu, Darren Ellias, Frank Lecce, Tony Dalpra, Ben Willinofsky, Tyson Noce, Baron Ha, Gagandeep Singh, Andre St. Jean, Christine So, Chanracy Khun, and Brad Lampman.

Garrett Dansereau bubbled off the final table in seventh place. The final table of six included Demo Kiriopoulos, Wing Yeung, Andrew Pantling, Jake Schwartz, James Morgan, and Noeung Troeung.

They played this final table out all the way to completion. Unlike the previous WPT stops where the final table was postponed until a later date to be played out at the Luxor in Las Vegas.

Noeung Troeung hit the road in sixth place, followed by James Morgan in fifth place. Jake Schwartz's run ended in fourth place, which paid out close to $124K USD.

Andre Pantling busted in third place, which paid out $172K. His elimination set up the heads-up finale between Wing Yeung and Demo Kiriopoulos. When the dust settled, Demo emerged the champion.

Everybody Wing Teung Tonight banked $268,511 USD for his victory. Not too shabby for runner-up prize, eh? Demo Kiriopoulos took home $382,894 USD for the win. That's a cool $517K in Canadian Dollars.

The WPT returns to California for two events including the $10,000 buy-in L.A. Poker Classic at Commerce Casino in the shadows of Hollywood. Then the tour swings north to Thunder Valley outside of Sacramento for the WPT Rolling Thunder.
