Poker EH! Canadian Poker Radio feat Laurence Grondin and Jon Harnish | QuadJacks Poker Radio Network Thursday March 22 2012

EspaceJeux poker pro Laurence Grondin Joined Poker Eh! to talk about her recent 135K score, her performance at the WSOP and in the 2010 Big Game. Lady Luck also discusses her love for tennis, animals and what’s coming up for the Quebec pro.

Picture this. You’re at your local health club, get back to the change room and you come to find that someone stole your winter jacket! Pretty tough beat. Two days later, you decide to skip a friend’s birthday party because you have an early wake-up call the next morning. You decide to log into your favorite online site and play a little cash game poker. What if I told you that you hit quad queens? Your opponent has quad jacks and you win your share of a 500K Bad Beat Jackpot???

Well, our guest on Poker Eh, EspaceJeux Poker Pro Laurence Grondin, did just that – collecting a 135K score – not bad for a quiet Friday night!

Grondin has been a tremendous poker ambassador to the French Canadian community for a few years now. Her work with EspaceJeux, with French 24 hour all-sports channel RDS and her work in the community (helping with a local animal shelter many times a week) and her realizing the importance of her actions and how she is perceived in society prove that the provincial government’s lottery corporation Loto-Quebec (who runs EspaceJeux) made the right decision in picking Laurence as their rep.

The Criminology major shares her thoughts on her performance at the 2009 WSOP where she collected a third place finish in a 2K side event and at the 2010 Big Game.

Laurence will be playing in two upcoming tournaments at the Casino du Lac-Leamy, one fun celebrity tournament in April and another – the 2012 Grand Tournoi de Poker de Loto-Quebec – where one player will qualify for the 1 million dollar buy-in One Drop Event at the World Series of Poker. Laurence will be one of many players participating in the one of the most prestigious poker tournament in Canada’s poker history.

Can you hear me now?

Our expert in all things poker in Canada, Jon Harnish, joined us to discuss the current on-goings in poker and the major events coming up as the World Series of Poker approaches.

Unfortunately, we were having phone issues with Jon and were unable to have a full report. We hope to have Jon back next week to dive right into what’s on the horizon in Canadian poker as well as a few other fun things!
