The weekend has come and gone and along with it, another stop of the World Poker Tour (WPT) has come to an end. WPT is one of the biggest names in world poker and they have poker tournament series scheduled throughout the year, in USA and other parts of the world as well.
The most recent stop was the WPT Montreal series at Playground Poker Club, where the CAD 5,300 buy-in Main Event concluded on Sunday. 792 entries bought in to the tournament and the CAD 5 million guaranteed was missed by a long way, but the players would’ve had no complaints about that!
It was a packed Final Table with the likes of Sorel Mizzi, Upeshka De Silva, and Ema Zajmovic all making the FT. Zajmovic is the first female player to win an open WPT title and she narrowly missed out on her second title here, losing in heads-up to Canada’s very own Patrick Serda.
Serda registered the second biggest victory of his career, taking home CAD 855,000 (~$668,388) for finishing first, along with a $15,000 entry to the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions. His biggest cash came in the 2016 EPT Prague High Roller, where he finished 2nd to William Kassouf for a prize of around $750k.
“It’s great; it feels a lot better than previous wins I’m not really sure why it feels like this but I worked for it more this time around. I coolered Sorel three-handed, obviously, but a lot of my other spots weren’t standard, and I feel like, especially, on Day 3 and 4, I overcame some adversity and tough spots,” said Serda after the victory.
