Poker Hall of Famer and partypoker ambassador Mike Sexton said, “partypoker is bringing the Grand Prix (GPPT) to Canada! I’ve played in a number of GPPT events in the UK and it’s fantastic to see one come to the Playground Poker Club in Montreal. This CAD $109 tournament offers value like no other with a $500,000 CAD guaranteed prize pool! The value is simply incredible. I hope to see you there.”
