Now that the WSOP Main Event is in the books, it's time for the poker world to turn its attention to poker-crazed Montreal.

The illustrious PlayGround Poker Club is in the midst of offering 13 events and hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money for PartyPoker WPT Montreal.

The massive festival began on Sunday (Nov. 9) but this weekend marks the start of the huge $200k guaranteed $250 buy-in Frenzy Event.

With a total of six starting days the Frenzy tournament will run all the way until Nov. 18, which leads in directly to the WPT Montreal $3,500+$350 main event on Nov 19.

Last year Derrick Rosenbarger outlasted 862 players in the main event to win a staggering $517,049.

$10k High Roller, PLO Event on Schedule

The WPT Montreal main event is hardly the end of the festival with a $10,000 buy-in high roller and a $550 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha event on the schedule too.

Interestingly, newly crowned WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson finished second in the $10k high-roller to Dutch pro Govert Metaal.

Perhaps the new $10m man will decide to go for a victory lap at WPT Montreal.

The festival will also feature a 6-Max event, an 8-Max event and a bounty tournament, which will likely include more than a couple poker celebs.

Here’s a look at a few of the highlight events left on the WPT Montreal schedule once the main event begins:

Nov. 20, 2014 WPT Montreal Main Event
Nov. 24, 2014 High Roller $10,000+$400
