Coming up from October 29th to November 16th is the 2017 Playground Poker Fall Classic including the WPT Montreal. With over $3,300,000 in guaranteed prize pools across 17 events, this year’s edition of the Fall Classic could be the best one yet!
The Fall Classic kicks off with the $100,000 Guaranteed $160 Re-entry event, in which the $25 tournament fee goes to the “Strangers in the Night” charity initiative. This is followed by the $200,000 Guaranteed $250 Frenzy, a $225 + $25 Re-entry event. New in this Fall Classic is the daytime Crazy $80, a $70 + $10 Re-entry event. All three tournaments promise Big Event poker for a small buy-in - these are can’t miss tournaments!
In addition, the Fall Classic sees the return of the massive $1,100 50/50 Bounty tournament, a $550 PLO event, and the $1,650 Second Chance NL Hold’em event - $150,000 Guaranteed! And if those aren’t big enough, you can also test your skills in the $10,300 High Roller Event. Past High Roller events have welcomed all-star fields and ended with some epic final table battles. There’s something for players of every level in the Fall Classic.
The $2,000,000 GTD WPT Montreal is the marquee event in the Fall Classic. Again this year it will be a televised WPT Main Tour event, and so far, the 5 WPT Montreal events have awarded total prizes of over $13.3M.
Over the years, the WPT Montreal has had huge fields and some great players have had their signature success in this event. Some of the highlights: Mike Sexton’s first WPT win (2016), Rainer Kempe’s first big score in North America (3rd in 2015), Pascal Lefrancois’ biggest career WPT result (2nd in 2012 - he lost the title to Jonathan Roy) - not to mention Mukul Pahuja’s back to back final tables in 2013 and 2014! Jonathan Jaffe enjoyed his first major victory in this event in 2014, while Ema Zajmovic - the first woman to ever win an open WPT Championship - warmed up for her victory with a 5th place finish in the 2016 edition of WPT Montreal.
Playground Poker Club is the place to be from October 29th to November 16th for the Fall Classic, and the WPT Montreal gets underway on November 10th. Visit playgroundpoker.ca for all the info you need about the Fall Classic and the WPT Montreal.
