WPT Montreal Online Main Event champion was determined
Participants of the WPT Montreal Online Main Event final table fought really hard to win the top prize. That battle at PartyPoker lasted five and a half hours, and none of the players wanted to concede.
Upeshka De Silva was the first to leave the tournament after he went all-in with A-K against Rayan Chamas holding AKs. Chamas hit a flush and thus knocked De Silva out of the game. It’s worth mentioning that the Brazilian was unable to play in the WSOP final in December because he had tested positive for COVID-19 before the final game.
Andrei Kriazhev sent Marcel Kunze to rest in eighth place. Having 16 BB, Marcel moved all-in with A-J and was called by Kriazhev. Andrei had A-K, which helped him to beat his opponent and continue fighting for the main prize.
An hour passed before the next player left the table: Austria’s Jakob Miegel put all his chips in the center of the table (5 BB), and Jack Hardcastle made an easy call with the most popular cards of that evening, namely A-K.
Soon after that, Andrei Kriazhev left the event: in one of the hands, Dan Shak hit a flush and Andrei lost almost his entire stack. It didn't take him long to lose the remaining 8 big blinds.
Dan Shak won big money but failed to win the Main Event, ending up in third place. For that result, the American high roller received a payment of $212 400.
In the final heads-up, the young British regular Jack Hardcastle was opposed by Rayan Chamas from Canada. For a little over an hour, the finalists fought to determine who of them would be the winner, and Jack Hardcastle turned out to be more fortunate. For the victory, the champion was awarded an impressive $447 000 in prize money, while the runner-up received $308 700.
