The World Poker Tour’s visit to the Canadian city of Montreal has gone better than anyone could have expected thanks to a mammoth turnout.
After welcoming 478 players on Day 1A, the organisers knew they were likely to break multiple records at the start of Day 1B with a waiting list already 40 players long.The anticipated rush did indeed take place and when the final number of entrants had been counted and verified a trio of records had fallen by the wayside as the inaugural WPT Montreal thundered on in the distance. In total 1,173 players anted-up the $3,300 entry fee, creating a first place prize of $779,710. Moreover, the tournament has now entered the history books as the largest WPT ever held in Canada, the largest Canadian tournament with a buy-in over $1,000 ever and the largest WPT event outside of the US in the Tour’s history. With new heights reached and an array of talent on display the action on the felt was palpable. However, after three total days of play a host of inevitable high profile eliminations occurred and now just 45 players remain. Jeff Gross is the main heading the pack with 2,422,000 going into Day 3 and he’s followed by local lad, Mike “Timex” Macdonald, on 1,598,000. Also riding high are familiar faces, Jason Koon (1,546,000), Christian Harder (1,472,000) and Gavin Smith (1,247,000).Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
