Canadian Jonathan Roy Wins Inaugural WPT Montreal

Level 37: 250,000-500,000, 50,000 ante

By Diana Cox
 
One of the largest World Poker Tour Main Events in the tour's 11-year history came to an end when all the chips in play were stacked in front of Jonathan Roy. Appropriately, for the WPT's first main event in Canada since 2008, the final table came down to two Canadians at WPT Montreal. 
 
Roy outlasted a field a massive field of 1,173 players and walked away with $779,710 from the $3,387,930.00 prize pool. 
 
At the front of of a packed house, Roy battled heads up with Pascal Lefrancois for a spot on the Champion's trophy, the prize money and the WPT silver belt.

The final hand came to down Lefrancois being forced all-in for less than one big blind after being severely crippled when he ran his 6heart6spade into Roy's KspadeQclub. With their stacks nearly even, Pascal raised to 1,000,000 from the button and Roy re-raised to 2,400,000. Pascal moved all-in and Roy called. The board ran out Kdiamond7heart7clubQdiamondJheart and nearly all the chips were moved to Roy's end of the table. 
 
On the next, and final hand of the night, Lefrancois was all-in for his last 500,000 after being dealt 8club3heart. Roy had KspadeJheart and the board ran out KclubJclub4diamondQdiamond9diamond to end the night.
 
Peter Kaemmerlen's final table appearance was extremely short lived as he was eliminated on the very first hand of the day. 
 
From under the gun Kaemmerlen raised to 300,000 and Jeff Gross answered with a re-raise from the small blind to 1,260,000. Kaemmerlen decided it was time to push his final 2,400,000 to the middle of the table. The shove was enough to put Gross into the tank before he made the call. 
 
When the two flipped their cards over Kaemmerlen was ahead with JdiamondJheart against Gross's Aheart10diamond and stayed ahead after a flop of 7spade5diamond4club. The 9heart on the turn was good for Kaemmerlen and he needed only to dodge an Ace in order to survive and double up. But an Ace, the Adiamond, was turned over on the river to give Gross the best hand and send Kaemmerlen away. 
 
After Kaemmerlen's exit, Sylvain Siebert, who began the day as the chip leader, became the fifth place finisher when he moved all in from the big blind with 6club6diamond. Roy called from the big blind with two black Queens. The dealer spread KclubKspade4diamondAspade7spade and Roy's Queens held to eliminate Siebert. 
 
Following Siebert to the rail was Gavin Smith, who started the day with the short stack. Smith moved all-in from the small blind with Adiamond5spade and Roy called from the big blind with Kclub7spade. The board is dealt 8diamond8spade2club7diamond3club pairs Roy's seven on the turn to end Smith's tournament. 

Smith's deep run marks his fifth WPT final table. 
 
Gross's third place elimination set the stage for the heads-up match when he moved all-in from the button for 2,475,000. Roy called from the small blind with AspadeQclub and Gross found he was behind with KdiamondQclub.The board ran out Aclub6club6spade2diamondKspade to give Roy two pair and remove Gross from the table.

Gross was quickly congratulated by his friend, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, who was on the rail.

Sylvain Siebert Doubles Thru Francois Billard

Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Sylvain Siebert raises preflop from the cutoff, and Francois Billard calls from the big blind. The flop comes 6spade4spade2club, Billard checks, Siebert bets 150,000, and Billard check-raises to about 400,000.

Siebert moves all in, and Billard calls with 10club10heart. Siebert says, "I've got nothing," and he turns over Aspade3spade. It may be "nothing," but Siebert is actually a statistical favorite with a flush draw, a gutshot straight draw, and an overcard.

The turn is the Qspade, the river is the 4club, and Siebert wins the pot with a spade flush to double up in chips.

Sylvain Siebert  -  4,250,000  (70 bb)
Francois Billard  -  230,000  (3 bb)

While this doesn't end the impressive comeback of Francois Billard, it certainly puts him in another deep hole that he'll need to climb out of.
