The World Poker Tour has landed in Montreal, Quebec for the 2012 WPT Montreal. Day 1A kicks off at 11:00 EST today. The buy-in for the Main Event is $3,000 + $300 (CAD) and a large field of players are expected to turn up. It's a re-entry tournament featuring two Day 1, so there will for sure be a nice prize pool.

a re-entry tournament is something like a rebuy tourney if i understand right? i think this structure is right- it inflates the prizepool, and helps players to skip the scenario where they fly from one continent to other just to be kicked out on the 1st hand sure you must be prepared to invest a bit more $$$ in such situation

Yeah! This will be nice for sure. You know most who can pay the initial buy-in will buy back in the next day to get their fair shot. Be nice to play in something like this just once to get a feel of what it's like. I'd probably be to worried about pictures and autographs from some of the pros, but it would be an exciting little adventure to see.

i can't understand this structure... if you lose all the chips in 1st day you can make a rebuy in the 2nd day? or how? if 95 players of 100 get out in the 1st day all of them can re-entry in the 2nd day?

It’s a short flight from USA to Quebec, will there be many north-American players at this event? It would be nice to see Americans there, but even if they aren’t in big number, I am sure this will be a very well disputed tourney.

Record-breaking WPT After a staggering 695 players sat down for their shot at the inaugural WPT Montreal title yesterday, taking the total number of entrants to 1,173. Not only did that mean the eventual winner will take home $754,162, but that each of six finalists in the $3,300 event will score a six-figure payday.
