This afternoon’s $150 + $15 turbo re-entry satellite for Event #2, the $1,000 + $100 Montreal Open, brought out a large field, large enough to nearly double the guarantee! In the end, nine players won their seats to the Open, putting them in position to get a piece of a seven-figure prize pool at a fraction of the buy-in cost.
This week will be filled with affordable satellites for the Montreal Open, with another on tap for tonight at 8:00pm, as well as seven others in the coming days. Day 1A of the Montreal Open starts on Saturday, May 17 and will be followed by six more starting flights so there is sure to be a huge field vying for the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool AND the 15 added $10,000 + $300 Main Event seats.
