6th Miriam Foundation Montreal Open

This is the sixth year that the Miriam Foundation will benefit from the Montreal Open live poker tournament, which is scheduled to be held on March 27 through 30 this year. Once again this event has proven to be Canada’s largest charity poker tournament, drawing about 1,500 players from around the country as well as the world.

The price to register for the tournament is $275, which buys a stack of $5,000 as well as meals and a drink. Days one through three are reserved for narrowing down the competition, and the top hundred players from this first round of play will advance to round two. The top thirty players from the second round will be flown to Las Vegas for the final showdown. The prize pool will be worth over $250,000 and include ten entries to the main event at the WSOP. The other twenty finalists will receive tickets to the next Montreal Open.

All the biggest names in Canadian poker are planning to make an appearance at this year’s charity event, including such stars as Gavin Smith. Experts are expecting this year’s event to be the biggest and most prestigious one yet thanks to Canada’s elevated status in the poker world after Jonathan Duhamel’s massive victory at the WSOP Main Event last November.
