Seems to be going great!
The Full Tilt Poker
Montreal Festival Main Event set new Canadian attendance records for number of entrants in a tournament with a buy-in of C$1,000 or higher. The festival’s main event has surpassed the C$1 million guarantee by a long shot, attracting 1,625 entrants with a total prize pool of C$1,576,250.
The winner will walk away with C$260,582 and the Main Event title
The 13-day festival, which began on September 21st, got off to a record-breaking beginning with the first event, a C$135 + C$15 NLHE tournament, attracting 1,605 runners over three start days – this more than doubled the C$100,000 guaranteed prize pool and broke the attendance record for Playground Poker Club.
The Main Event has now reached Day 3 and players are in the money; a champion will be crowned on Thursday, October 3rd.
Main Event coverage including live reporting, photographs and videos can be found on the Full Tilt Poker blog, while a live stream of the action kicked off yesterday, September 30th, and will run until a winner is determined.
