Canada’s Luc Greenwood (cover image) has taken down the second-biggest buy-in event at the ongoing Australian Poker Open. Greenwood came out on top of a stacked field of 35 entries in Event #6: A$50,000 NLH to win A$700,000!

The event generated a prize pool of AU$1,750,000 and the top five places made it in the money.

Speaking after the tournament got over, Greenwood stated, “This feels great. I was having a really rough trip to Australia so far with only one min cash so far. This was a tough field and a big battle, and even though it looked like I was gonna run away with it three-handed, I really had to fight for it and I’m glad that I won. I think I played quite well overall.”

“I really love the game and I just try to play my best every single day, even if it’s just for small stakes online. I always try to focus on how well I played versus how much money I won or lost. If you’re playing poker professionally, it’s more important that you really enjoy the game no matter what stakes you’re playing for rather than getting just excited about the money.” he added.

Meanwhile, the A$100K Main Event at the stop is presently underway and logged in 28 entries to create an A$2.8 Million prize pool that is to be shared among the top four finishers. Currently, the event is down to two tables and will play down to a winner tomorrow.
