Miss out on the record breaking WPT Montreal last November, with the largest field for a buy-in over $1,000 in Canadian poker tournament history? Not to worry, because they’re coming back and this time they are bringing the TV cameras!
The $3,850 Main Event is scheduled to take place from the 29th of November to 5th of December, 2013 at Playground Poker Club. Last year, hundreds of players qualified via live and online satellites, helping to build a field of nearly 1,200 entrants and a top prize of nearly $800,000.
