WPT Montreal Begins This Week at Partypoker; Mike Sexton Classic Charity Event Closes Series

The month of January brings even more World Poker Tour action to partypoker. The WPT Montral kicks off Jan. 17 and runs through Feb. 1 with numerous six- and seven-figure guarantees.

The newly-released schedule includes a $3,200 Main Event with $2 million guaranteed to kick off the series. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the series has moved online with plenty of action awaiting online poker players around the world.

“The WPT Montreal Online schedule features events for players of all bankrolls,” WPT  Europe Vice President Hermance Blum said in a news release. “Another WPT Champion will be made on partypoker and we are thrilled to, once again, honor the memory of Mike Sexton by bringing the event where he won his WPT title online.”

A complete WPT Montreal Main Event experience

As has been the case with other online WPT partypoker events, players can expect a full tour experience. At least the best that can be expected in an online poker environment.

Some big rewards are in store for the champion. Along with a huge cash prize, the champion earns:

  • a $15,000 seat to the next WPT Tournament of Champions (presented by Baccarat Crystal)
  • a $2,500 Tournament of Champions travel package
  • name engraved on the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup
  • a replica of the Sexton Cup
  • points in the Hublot Player of the Year race

To replicate the live poker experience, the Main Event champion will also walk away with a WPT Montreal championship belt. This has become the signature trophy presented by Playground Poker Club, the host venue for the annual live series.

The final table is also expected to be live streamed for poker fans as have previous WPT partypoker events. The first flight of the Main Event begins the series on Jan. 17. A $320 mega satellite scheduled for the same day, awarding at least 50 seats.

The second Main Event flight is set for Jan. 24. That will be followed by two further days of action on Jan. 25 and 26. The final table will then play out on Jan. 27.

There will also be mini and micro versions of the Main Event. The $320 Mini comes with a $200,000 guarantee and the $33 Micro guarantees $30,000.

Some additional WPT Montreal highlights

With 24 events, the WPT Montreal offers something for all player types. A one-day No Limit Hold’em event will be held every night of the series.

The schedule also includes eight high roller events, including the $25,500 Super High Roller with a $1 million guarantee. As in the Main Event, players will also find mini versions of several events. Here’s a look at a few other highlights:

  • $530 Omaha Knockout (Event 2, Jan. 20) – $50,000 guarantee
  • $55 Mini Omaha Knockout (Event 2, Jan. 20) – $15,000 guarantee
  • $1,050 Montreal Masters (Event 7, Jan. 22) – $500,000 guarantee
  • $1,600 Second Chance Turbo (Event 13, Jan. 25) – $100,000 guarantee
  • $162 Six-Max Turbo (Event 16, Jan. 27) – $20,000 guarantee
  • $530 Playground Closer (Event 20, Jan. 29) – $250,000 guarantee

A special addition this year is the $10,300 Mike Sexton Classic, running the final two days of the festival. The tournament features $1 million guaranteed and each $300 registration fee is donated to the Nevada Partnership Homeless Youth (NPHY) charity.

Mike Sexton celebrates after winning the WPT Montreal in 2016.

The group aims to end youth homelessness in southern Nevada and was been chosen specifically by Sexton’s family. Sexton won the WPT Montreal in 2016 for $317,896.

A phased satellite program will feed into the tournament, starting on Jan. 24. Players can buy into phase events for as little as $0.01. This allows players of all bankrolls a chance to land a seat in the tournament. Here’ a look at the complete series:
