You know the name. You love the format. The WPTDeepStacks returns to Montreal, and this time as a full-fledged festival! Held from April 16 to April 27, the series features nine tournaments and over $1,900,000 in total guarantees.
The tour was honoured at the 4th Annual American Poker Awards in February of 2018 with the well-deserved prize for Mid-Major Circuit of the Year. Since then, the brand has continued to expand and now offers premier poker festivals on six continents!
What to expect in Montreal? Lots of action! Event #2 will be none other than the now famous WPTDeepStacks Opener, the $500 + $50 tournament that follows the WPTDeepStacks far and wide. With a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool, seven Day 1s to choose from and an unlimited re-entry format, this is a can’t-miss event.
The WPTDeepStacks Montreal Main Event is a $1,500 + $150 tournament that is no stranger to our club. The last time this event was here was in November 2019 as part of the WPT Montreal, Playground’s longest-running poker festival. Back then, the guarantee was $500,000 and was shattered by over 60%. In April, the guaranteed prize pool is boldly doubled to $1,000,000$! If you wish to get in for a fraction of the price, there are eight $150 + $15 satellites to choose from. And if online poker is your thing, partypoker LIVE has got you covered! On the Sunday prior to the festival, you will find on the partypoker client the WPTDeepStacks Montreal Main Event Day 1 Online, a great option to qualify early for Day 2 and focus on the other events at the club. Buy in directly or satellite your way in, but make sure to claim your share of the 7-figure prize pool!
On the event schedule, you will also find the WPTDeepStacks High Roller. Positioned towards the end of the series, the $2,300 + $200 tournament is guaranteed at $200,000 and follows a single re-entry format. Entering and re-entering is available all through the single Day 1 and until play resumes on Day 2.
Six more events are offered at the festival with buy-in of $200 + $20 or $300 + $30 with excellent guarantees. Read the schedule carefully and trace your route!
