The Main Event of the first-ever Full Tilt Poker Montreal Festival has concluded. Day 1A saw 491 people compete at the Playground Poker Club, hitting 50% of the $1 million guaranteed prize pool, with Day 1B and Day 1C expected to reach upwards of $2 million in prizes by the time all things are done. What’s interesting about the format is that players are allowed to compete in all three opening days, continuing on with their largest stack on Day 2.
Vineet Pahuja is the chip leader of Day 1A, amassing an incredible 456,000 chips. Approximately 142 players survived to play Day 2. Notable pros who made the cut include Gus Hansen, David Williams, Victor Ramdin, Martins Adeniyna, and Andras Nemeth. Notable exits include Antonio Esfandiari, Gavin Smith, Vanessa Rousso, Jonathan Roy, Dermot Blain, Danielle Anderson, and Ben Jenkins.
