Air force jet pilot Derrick Rosenberger has become the latest member of the World Poker Tour's Champion's Club after winning WPT Montreal overnight.
The American pocketed a first place prize of $500,824 and a seat in the WPT Championship worth $25,000 after working his way through a stacked 862-runner field in Quebec. Rosenberger is something of a novice in the live game with just a single tournament min-cash to his name prior to this event. He looked anything but a rookie on the final table though, keeping out of trouble in the early stages before making his move when play went four-handed. Rosenbarger went from short stack to contender after two double ups in quick sucession. He needed a little luck when all in with Qc9c against Sylvain Siebert's AK and duly got it. There was nothing fortunate when he repeated the trick soon after though, flopping a set of queens to leave Siebert's title chances in ruins. It was all over for the long time chip leader soon after, when his open shove with Ad6d couldn't overturn Serge Cantin's pocket 8s. Those pocket 8s would prove to be Cantin's downfall though. The Canadian was on the wrong end of a flip with Mukul Pahuja's AK and departed in third with $220,170 no doubt offering some compensation. Pahuja finished third in the Seminole Hard Rock Open for over $832,000 in August and was a hot favourite to claim his first World Poker Tour crown in Montreal. He couldn't turn a two to one chip lead into victory though, eventually succumbing in second when his Ad4d couldn't improve to beat Rosenbarger's pocket queens. 2013 partypoker World Poker Tour Montreal – Final Results1.
