It ended up being Jonathan Roy who won the biggest ever WPT event held in Canada (and one of the biggest in WPT history): the 2012 WPT Montreal main event. Roy outlasted a massive field of 1,173 players and defeated Pascal Lefrancois heads-up for the title and the first place prize of $779,710 ($3,387,930 prize pool).

Only 550k separated Pascal Lefrancois from Jonathan Roy when this hand was played out: 

Lefrancois raised to 1 million pre flop and Roy reraised to 2.4 million on the button. Lefrancois announced that he was all in and Roy made the call.

Pascal: 6Heart6Spade
Roy: KSpadeQClub

The board ran out KDiamond7Heart7ClubQDiamondJHeart

Jonathan Roy took home the pot and Pascal Lefrancois was forced all in by the big blind the very next hand with his remaining 550k.

Pascal: 8Club3Heart
Roy: KSpadeJHeart

The board ran out KClubJClub4DiamondQDiamond9Diamond and Jonathan Roy was crowned the champion.

WPT Montreal final table results:

1st: Jonathan Roy - $779,710
2nd: Pascal Lefrancois - $470,920
3rd: Jeff Gross - $317,450
4th: Gavin Smith - $211,745

Wow, Pascal was in front, although by a short difference, a single hand, with a low pocket pair, turned everything upside down with a big difference and the very next hand already wouldn't change anything even if he happened to win, because he already hadn't enough for the BB. Even if he won that hand, the difference in terms of chips would continue to be very big, which would obbly him to have to win several hands in a row always with all in just to see if he would get to a point of relief again and starting again to play nomrally against his opponent. But that didn't happened.
