Grand Prix Canada – CAD $1,000,000 Gtd

The World Cup of Cards is on its way with over CAD $6,000,000 gtd across a series of events in August and September, and first in line is the Grand Prix Canada at Montreal’s Playground Poker Club from 13th – 21st August.

Earlier this year we hosted a Grand Prix Canada event with CAD $500,000 gtd but this time we’re doubling the prizepool to CAD $1,000,000, all for the same relatively small buy-in of CAD $220!

You can also win your seat from just $2.20. Satellites are already running on partypoker and you’ll find all the information you need below.
