Ruben Perceval Ships Espacejeux Poker Classic for $26,393




The 2016 Espacejeux Poker Classic took over Casino Montreal last week featuring three events including a $300 No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE) event, a $600 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty, and a $1,200 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. Ruben Perceval topped a field of 79 to claim the Main Event title and $26,393 while Ryan Normandeau and Jeremy Rozmiarek also picked up wins.

After two days of play, the 2016 World Poker Tour Canadian Spring Championship runner-up Ruben Perceval, has taken down the Espacejeux Poker Classic Main Event. Perceval defeated heads-up opponent Martin Nguyen to seal the deal at a final table that also included George Kazarian, Jean-Philippe Piquette, and Kenneth Lindgren, who had made his second final table in as many days.

In total, 79 players put up the $1,200 buy-in for the Main Event. Just 17 made it out of Day 1 with Piquette leading the field, barely ahead of Lindgren and Perceval. Diana Shamshoum, Zheng Wei, Marco Caza, Rodney Ramalho, and Chanracy Khun were also in the mix heading into the finale on Day 2. In the end, Perceval was the last one standing and earned a top prize of $26,393.
