partypoker and Playground Create Largest Prize Pool in Canadian Poker History

0
Karim Abdelhamid

 

partypoker and Playground Poker Club have smashed a 10-year old record for the largest prize pool of a live poker tournament in Canadian history. With a total of 1,168 entries, the prize pool for the 2017 partypoker Live Million North America closed at $5,709,750.

After running deep in the partypoker Grand Prix Canada last week, Karim Abdelhamid has the top Canadian stack, sitting third overall with 17,970,000. Rayan Chamas (17,270,000) and Ema Zajmovic (15,735,000) are two other Canadians among the leaders and round out the top five stacks with Americans James Romero (19,655,000) chip leading and Upeshka De Silva (18,575,000) in second.

Just 176 players remain after a long battle on Day 2. Some other Canucks moving on to Day 3 include Duff Charette (15,060,000), Jean-Pascal Savard (14,130,000), Jean-Philippe Piquette (13,285,000), Benny Chen (12,000,000), Sylvain Siebert (11,665,000), and Ari Engel (9,250,000).

The money bubble should burst around mid-day with just 119 players earning a stop at the payout desk. It is still early but the focus and sights for the majority of players will stay glued to the $1,000,000 first place prize. Anyone making the money today will earn at least a min-cash of $10,000.

The dream ended for a lot of players on Sunday. Some notable countrymen to lose all their chips include Eric Afriat, Griffin Benger, Marc-Etienne McLaughlin, Dilovan Hussein, Kristen Bicknell, Alex Difelice, Jonathan Roy, Sam Chartier, Jason Duval, Sorel Mizzi, Ami Alibay, Mark Radoja, and Pascal Lefrancois.

Day 3 gets underway at noon local time in Kahnawake, QC. Another eight 75-minute levels are on the schedule. Also slated for Monday inside Playground are Event #5 and Event #6 of the Spring Classic. The fifth event of the festival is the $2,500 NL Hold’em Second Chance with a $150,000 guarantee, kicking off at 11 a.m. The sixth event, a $330 NL Hol’dem 8-Max, takes place later on Monday with cards in the air at 8 p.m.
