1,000 Players Expected for First WPT Montreal Event



World Poker Tour - WPT - Montreal

The first ever WPT (World Poker Tour) event in Quebec, Canada is going to be a very big success.

The WPT Montreal, hosted at Playground Poker in Kahnawake, Quebec, is not only the World Poker Tour's first ever event in Quebec, but it is also the tour's first event in Canada since October of 2008.

Thanks to the very strong turnout for the inaugural WPT Montreal, Canadians certainly won't have to wait another four years for the World Poker Tour to return.

478 players turned out for Day 1A of the event, and an even larger field is expected for Day 1B on Saturday. People who bust Day 1A are allowed to buy in again on Day 1B, which means that there should be well over 1,000 entries by the time that Day 1B closes on Saturday evening. The buy-in is $3,300 Canadian (roughly $3,300 USD), meaning that the total prize pool is looking to be approximately $3 million.

A number of big names turned out for the inaugural WPT Montreal event, including:

Daniel Negreanu
Antonio Esfandiari
Phil Laak
David Williams
Jonathan Duhamel
Tom Marchese

--

Note: the tournament is running until Tuesday (November 27th). In order to deal with the larger than expected field, WPT officials have decided to play an extra two levels on the first day of play.

Note #2: Antonio Esfandiari and David Williams are two of your early tournament chip leaders, while Daniel Negreanu and Jonathan Duhamel have both busted (both are expected to buy in again on Day 1B)
