    As I posted on Facebook, below is the WPT Montreal schedule. The lowest buy-in for an open event is $550, with re-entries. The other buy-ins are $10,300, $5,300, $1,650, and $1,100 PLO. There is a $220 Ladies-only event, but unlike previous years' PG festivals, there are no Seniors or Survivor events.

    There has been a Seniors event in every major festival at PG from April 2016 (WPT CSC) to January 2018, as I remember cashing in three consecutive 50+ events. However, with the three sponsored festivals this year, the Seniors and Survivor events have disappeared. Hopefully, a Seniors event will return at the World Cup of Cards (a few months after WPT Montreal) so I can finally resume playing at PG with PocketsTwos and others.

    Gonna try hard to make it to this one. Glad it's a little earlier this year, which should elimated any snow/ice storm possibilities...

    Does the Main Event Mega Satellite on Wednesday October 31st qualify directly into Day-2? What sort of stack would be brought forward?

    You will have a standard starting stack if you win the final satellite seat, but you will be at a big disadvantage against the much bigger bagged stacks from the online and live Day 1s.

    Looks like I'll be heading up last weekend of Oct to play the 500. Too bad can't play the rest as I'll be off to Vegas

    I'm planning on playing in the $1650 Deepstack, probably Nov 1. Anyone else heading to Montreal?

    Anyone know how many levels the WPT500 Day-1 *Online* plays for? They start at 9pm ET so just curious as to how late it'll run. I won some PP $$$ so plan on using that as my buy-in and will only go to PG if I advance to Day-2 with a decent stack.

    Thanks. Would you think that the levels are 30 minutes for Online? Or less (maybe 15 minute levels) for online? That'll go until 5am if that's the case!

    Edit: I can log in to PP when I get home this evening and check.

    Online levels are typically 12 minutes when live are 30 min
