WPT Returns To Montreal. Head There With A Package Worth $5,500
It has been four long years since a World Poker Tour main event was held in Canada but the wait is almost over as the WPT heads to Montreal at the end of November.
The WPT Montreal Championships will take place at the Playground Poker Club between Nov.23-27 and you could be heading there armed with a package worth $5,500. Some of the best players in the world are expected to be in attendance but it could be you who the poker media are following if you go deep in what should be one of the best live poker events held in Canada for a long time.
Each $5,500 package consists of:
- $3,300 WPT Montreal Championship main event seat
- $1,300 spending money
- Hotel accommodation
- PartyPoker's world-renowned hospitality
As you can see from the graphic below, there are a whole host of different way you can qualify for this amazing tournament, including one route that could see you heading to Montreal for no financial outlay whatsoever!
The last time the WPT was in Canada it was October of 2008 when Glen Witmer bested a 454-strong field to get his hands on the US$1,084,256 first-place prize. Witmer had to defeat a talented final table that was also the home to Marc Karam, Kathy Liebert and his heads up opponent Gavin Smith. Will it be you who leaves Montreal as a WPT champion this time around?
