WPT Canadian Spring Championship Day 2 Recap

Tuesday, 7 May 2013

After a second day of action at the felt, just 44 players now remain in contention for the $438,607 top prize at this year’s CAD$3,300 WPT event in Montreal’s Playground Poker Club.

Having collected 735 entry fees over the course of thee starting days, the time for rebuys was over yesterday as the field was gradually whittled down to just 44 players.

At the close of play with was Paul Klann who bagged the largest stack. Having already taken down the WPT L.A. Poker Classic this year, Klann is currently closing in on the Player of the Year title. Indeed, along with Matt Salsberg (who was eliminated midway through Day 2), Klann is one of the players who can still clinch the title.

While Klann was busy scooping 1,793,000 chips throughout the day, Tyler Reiman was falling short of the money by just one place.

After grinding his way to the bubble the American pro finally committed his stack with pocket tens. Unfortunately Jason Duval held pocket kings and after the board ran out: Jh 9c 5c As 4s, he was forced to head for the rail one place short of the money.

With the bubble burst each player left in the tournament was guaranteed at least $6,076, but as today’s session begins it will be the final table and the winner’s trophy that everyone will be focusing one.
