  1. [caption width="640"] David Ormsby came from behind heads-up to win the WPT Fallsview Main Event (photo credit: Rob Gracie/WPT)[/caption] The World Poker Tour returned to Canada with a CAD 5,000 ($3,650) Main Event at the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario. A field of 423 entries was reduced to an all-Ontario final table, including Soren Turkewitsch, a winner of this very event in 2005. After over 160 hands of play, David Ormsby came from behind to win the title and a seat at the WPT Tournament of Champions at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The final table started Wednesday afternoon with these chip counts with the blinds at 25,000/50,000/5,000: Seat 1: Robert Forbes - 4,015,000 Seat 2: Soren Turkewitsch - 1,830,000 Seat 3: Mike Bui - 2,860,000 Seat 4: David Ormsby - 1,550,000 Seat 5: Thomas Archer - 880,000 Seat 6: Derek Verrian - 1,565,000 The WPT Fallsview final table needed only three hands to lose the first player. A short-stacked Thomas Archer moved in from the hijack as Rob Forbes and Mike Bui called. On a flop of [poker card="9d"][poker card="8c"][poker card="5s"], Forbes shoved out of turn, which led Bui to check and then fold once the action was in the correct order. Archer held [poker card="ac"][poker card="5c"], but was well behind Forbes' [poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="7c"] turn and river changed nothing as Archer left the table in sixth. The hopes of Turkewitsch becoming a two-time WPT champion disappeared when he became the fifth place finisher. Once again it was Forbes knocking out a player when he opened and Turkewitsch shoved. Forbes called with [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] and Turkewitsch held [poker card="as"][poker card="4c"]. The board ran out [poker card="7c"][poker card="6d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"] to bring the field down to four as Forbes was cruising, holding more than twice the chips of the other three players combined. The fortunes of Forbes took a turn for the worst after doubling up all three of his opponents to narrow the gap considerably. Forbes wasn't deterred, though, as he claimed his third scalp at the final table when he snap-called Mike Bui's [poker card="kc"][poker card="th"] shove with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ac"]. Five cards later - [poker card="7s"][poker card="6d"][poker card="3d"][poker card="qd"][poker card="tc"] - it was now three-handed. Derek Verrian and David Ormsby battled for second place, each hoping to get heads-up with Forbes. It was Verrian earning the bronze medal, as Forbes once again sent a player packing. On a flop of [poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"], Forbes bet out, Verrian shoved, and Forbes eventually called with [poker card="as"][poker card="4h"] for an open-ended straight draw, while Verrian turned over [poker card="8h"][poker card="6h"] for top pair. The [poker card="2d"] on the turn gave Forbes the straight and the [poker card="tc"] on the river wasn't the right card for Verrian, falling in third. As heads-up play began, it seemed inevitable for Rob Forbes to win by eliminating all five of his opponents. However, David Ormsby had already doubled up several times to stay in contention at the final table. At one point in their heads-up match, Forbes was ahead by a 4-1 margin, but he was unable to finish the job. After another Ormsby double-up, he took the lead for the first time on the 155th hand of the final table. Less than a dozen hands later, the tournament was over. Now it was Ormsby holding a 3-1 chip lead as the final hand played out. Ormsby limped from the small blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jd"] and called when Forbes shoved with [poker card="3c"][poker card="3d"]. Ormsby moved ahead on the [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"][poker card="4s"] flop and Forbes could not catch up, as the turn and river came down [poker card="7c"][poker card="6s"]. World Poker Tour Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event Final Table Results (payouts in USD): David Ormsby - $279,818 Robert Forbes - $196,156 Derek Verrian - $126,126 Mike Bui - $93,275 Soren Turkewitsch - $70,026 Thomas Archer - $56,103
