More about WPT Montreal
After a multi-year absence from the Canadian market, the World Poker Tour is returning to Canada with an official Main Event tour stop scheduled for November 2012 at Playground Poker Club just outside of Montreal, Quebec.
Because this is a World Poker Tour Main Event, WPT Player of the Year points will be up for grabs along with bragging rights to the winner as Canada’s WPT Champion. WPT talent, including Tony Dunst, will be on hand during play down to provide insight and commentary during the WPT Live Stream starting at 4:30pm ET each day.
VIPs and lucky audience members will get to watch the players at the final table compete for the first-place prize money and to have their names etched onto the prestigious WPT Champion’s Cup and Champions Trophy while sitting alongside the popular Royal Flush Girls. In addition to claiming the coveted WPT title, the tournament champion will also receive a commemorative gold bracelet and a one-of-a-kind championship belt, courtesy of Playground Poker Club.
This package has an estimated value of $5,000. If the cost is below that amount, the difference will be awarded to the winner in cash.
