The WPT Borgata tournaments are popular among Canadians, especially Ontarians and Quebecers.

The most notable finish by a Canadian in any of the events is a win in Event #19, a $350+$50 buy-in Deep Stack NLH event. A total of 678 entries made for a $237,230 prize pool. The eventual winner was Diana Shamshoum, of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec who got paid $55,260 for her victory.

Diana is a recreational poker player and fairly new to the poker scene but no doubt she has picked up the game very quickly.  She had her first tournament cashes at two WPT Montreal side events last November at Playground Poker Club, one of them a win.

Congratulations Diana!!
