wpt logoThe World Poker Tour’s Season XI stop in Montreal for the verbosely titled, Party Poker World Poker Tour Canadian Spring Championship (rivaled only by the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamonds World Poker Championship) attracted a starting field of 735 players over the three Day 1 starting flights, and when the dust settled less than half the original field remained entering Monday’s Day 2.
