Day 2 Results of 2013 WPT Montreal Main Event
The 2013 WPT Montreal Main Event Day 2 expected the money bubble to burst but as it happened, the player field got obliterated. It was only last Monday when 357 players survived but when it ended, there were only 59 left. Ludovic Lacay entered Day 3 as the chip leader.
Other players who ended up with more than a million chips after the day were: David Barter with 1,014,000 chips, Jonathan Little with 1,053,000 chips, Jerry Wong with 1,160,000 chips, and Marco Cannizzaro with 1,170,000 chips.
Lacay is no stranger to victory. Last fall, he was the champion at the European Poker Tour (EPT) San Remo Main Event where he was awarded with €744,910 ($961,807) first place prize. Then at the WSOP in 2010, he placed 4th at a $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship where he won over $250K, He also had 2 appearances at WPT: He placed 2nd in WPT Spanish Championship back in 2007 and won €295,200 ($414,747) then he placed 3rd in the 2009 WPT Marrakech Main Event and got awarded €164,789 ($242,833). Overall, his winnings now amount to over $3 million for live tournaments. This increased his rank to 6th place on France’s all-time money list.
