One Canadian Cash at WPT Maryland
The World Poker Tour (WPT) was in action in Maryland this past week, offering a chance for poker players to join the WPT Champions Club.
With a buy-in of $3,500, a tally of 561 entries fell nearly $150,000 short of the $2 million guarantee.
Day 1a came to a close with no recognizable Canadians listed as having taken a shot. But the second entry flight finished with Canadian Ari Engel finishing the day with the second-best chip stack, bagging 210,400 for Day 2. Shyam Srinivasan also made the trek and bought a seat, but he was unable to survive the day.
Ari Engel, the lone Canadian hope, managed to carry his big stack all the way to 27th place before he was eliminated for $13,900.
The winner was someone who posed for a WPT Champion photo just a few weeks earlier. Art Papazyan took down his second title for $389,405, following his victory in the WPT Legends of Poker where he won $668,692, putting his season tally over the $1 million mark.
Next up for WPT is a stop in Florida for the WPT bestbet Bounty Scramble. That kicks off on October 21 with a buy-in of $5,000.
