The $3,500 buy-in main event, which begins on May 1, will take place at the Playground Poker Club in Quebec. The tournament runs through May 6.
The tournament features two starting flights, with next-day re-entry. Players who enter on day 1A and survive may also enter day 1B, if they desire, and then take the larger of their accumulated chip stacks on to day 2.
Live satellites and other ways to qualify are available at Playground. Players can also qualify online via PartyPoker for as little as $5.
The WPT main event is the culmination of the Playground Poker Spring Classic, which kicks off on April 19. Two events will guarantee at least six figures, including a $150 buy-in ($100,000 GTD) and a $250 buy-in ($200,000 GTD). More details on the schedule here.
So far, there are just two events that have been announced for the WPT’s next season, other than the Canadian Spring Championship: the WPT Amsterdam from May 11-16, and the WPT Choctaw from July 31-August 4 in Oklahoma.
There are still two events left in Season XIII: The WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, held Apr 16-22 in Florida; and the WPT World Championship April 25-29 at the Borgata in Atlantic City.
