The World Poker Tour (WPT) is one of the most popular events on the international poker calendar. The WPT recently announced that it would kick start Season XIV on the 1st of May with the partypoker.net WPT Canadian Spring Championship which is scheduled to take place at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The event will run from the 1st of May to the 6th of May and will feature a CAD $3,500 buy-in WPT Main Tour event that has 2 starting flights that comes with a next day re-entry. Players who bag on Day 1a will also be able to play on Day 1b. In case they bag both, they will have to forfeit their smallest stack in such instances.
