The World Poker Tour carried on their 3rd Canadian stop of this year with Day 1b of partypoker.net WPT Montreal at the Playground Poker Club.
Settled just outside of downtown Montreal, Quebec, 235 players came through Playground’s doors on Saturday to try to qualify for Monday’s Day 2.
Another ten 1-hour levels of play came to an end with just ninety-six players still having chips. Among them was Freddy Deeb, who ended 2nd at the very last WPT event he cashed World Poker Tour Legends of Poker in LA this last August. He looks to be going for another deep run, holding a 4th-best heap of 180000 in chips.
