The World Poker Tour traveled to Montreal this week for the first of two events at Playground Poker Club in Season XVI. The third final table to air on PokerGO took place today with Maxime Heroux walking away on top of a field of 606 entrants to win his first WPT event and CAD $403,570.
Heroux faced tough competition at the final table with WPT Champions Club member Eric Afriat making it to the final six along with high roller extraordinaire David Peters.
Peters battled in Poker Masters and Super High Roller Bowl in 2017 but came up shy of taking home his first WPT title, bowing out in sixth place. Afriat went out just after, earning fifth place in his fourth career WPT final table. Arizona pro Derek Wolters eliminated Afriat and boosted his championship prospects in the process.
Next up on PokerGO is “Leave it to Seiver” week on Poker After Dark. Scott Seiver is the focal point of the game with Garrett Adelstein and Chris Kruk among the new faces in the line up.
