PartyPoker.net and WPT Double Up Canadian Stops in 2013
Poker players in Montreal will have two chances to play on the WPT in 2013.
PartyPoker.net and the World Poker Tour are building on last year's record-breaking numbers with two Canadian main events in 2013.
In 2012 the WPT returned to Canada after a four-year absence, setting the record for the biggest Canadian WPT ever, and the biggest tournament in Canadian poker history with a buy-in bigger than $1k.
This year the WPT will visit the Playground Poker Club twice more including the brand-new Canadian Spring Championship May 3-9.
The record-setting WPT Montreal will return November 29 to December 5 but this year it will include a High Roller event and will be televised alongside the World Poker Tour's other flagship events.
As the official sponsor of both tournaments PartyPoker.net will be running freerolls and qualifiers leading up to both events.
The entire WPT broadcasting team will be on location including Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten on commentary as well as Tony Dunst, Kimberly Lansing and the Royal Flush Girls providing supporting material.
Last year French-Canadian Jonathan Roy defeated a field of 1,173 to win $779,710 and a seat in the $25,000 WPT Championship at Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Roy is from Boucherville, Quebec, the same town that claims 2010 WSOP Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel.
