The WPT Montreal is finally here! At Playground, we are extremely excited to host the WPT500, the WPT Main Tour, and the WPTDeepStacks, all grouped together in a first-of-its-kind festival, and while the WPT500 Day 1s Online have already been played (see the results here), the live portion of the festival starts Friday! Make sure to follow the action on our Event Blog, where live updates will be posted throughout the festival!
The festival, kicking off the new 4-year partnership between partypoker LIVE and WPT, presents 7 official World Poker Tour Events, with combined guarantees of over $8,000,000. The Main Event has a $5000 + $300 buy-in and a cool $5,000,000 in its own guaranteed prize pool! Check out the full schedule here.

Qualify at Playground
Playground has also put together a 2-day Satellite Frenzy, positioned right before the festival on October 24 and October 25, where you can win seats to the WPT500, the Main Event, and the WPTDeepStacks.

The big blind ante
This festival will also introduce the big blind ante to Playground, an exciting novelty for our venue. The big blind ante is similar to the button ante, but instead of being asked from the player on the button, it is the player in the big blind who has to pay it. Read up on the big blind ante here.
Within the WPT Montreal, you will also find a unique opportunity to qualify for the Caribbean Poker Party: a $1,200 + $100 Overlay Satellite with one package to the famous poker festival under the sun for every 10 entries, plus an added $12K package! That’s right, this satellite guarantees an overlay of $12,000 in the prize pool! The package breakdown:
- One (1) $5,300 Main Event seat.
- Nine (9) nights, Bed & Breakfast for two people, at Baha Mar.
- $1,000 resort credit.
- $2,000 travel expenses.
This is one cool package to hold, and the Overlay Satellite at the WPT Montreal is your best chance at winning one.
