Fallsview Casino to host WPT Canada in February

It’s WPT Canada Style! The World Poker Tour Fallsview Poker Classic is coming to Ontario in February.

WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Feb 5-12 2018Let’s see here… three days, four events, a pair of super satellites, innumerable poker pros and a pristine view of the majestic Niagara Falls. That can only mean one thing, ladies and gentleman. It’s WPT Canada style!

The World Poker Tour is coming to Ontario. Just one week from now, the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic will kick off with its first events, as well as a pair of super satellites to the $5k Main Event. There’s already energy in the air as Ontario’s casinos prep for the big game.

Casinos? Isn’t it just one casino? Not if you’re looking for a cheap ride into the main event.

Satellites to WPT Fallsview Poker Classic

Generally speaking, Casino Fallsview and Niagara Casino are rivals. After all, they’re only a few minutes apart. Heck, you could walk from one to the other in 20 minutes. But their competitive nature halts when the WPT comes to town. In this area, they share the love of the game, and the felt upon which it’s played.

Right now, players can enter satellites to the WPT Fallsview Main Event at Casino Niagara. These tables will continue to run through 6pm on February 2, at which point that poker room will close its doors until the conclusion of the Fallsview Poker Classic up the road.

Once the poker tour gets underway, players still seeking satellite entry will have one opportunity left. The final $500 Super Satellite to the Main Event will be held on February 9th in the Grand Hall at Fallsview Casino.

WPT Canada Events Schedule

The action gets underway on February 5th with Event #1, $1,000 NLHE. It features two days of starting flights, and a third day to duke it out. Players who fall to the way side on day one have the option of re-entering for the second day’s flight. Or, on February 7th, players can pay $250 to join in the Super Satellite to the next day’s event…

Event #2, $2,500 NLHE, begins on February 8th. Players will have one re-entry option, should thy need it. That tournament will wrap up on Feb 10th, just in time for the grand finale. And again, if you don’t make it to day three of that event, there’s a $500 Super Satellite to the Main Event on February 9th.

Darren Elias wins Fallsview WPT CanadaThe WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event kicks off Feb 10th with a $5,000 buy-in and one optional re-entry per player. Tournament officials are hoping to see the entries top 500 this year, following last year’s close-call of 489. That crowd built a prize pool of $2,229,954. The highest slice (C$ 429,384) went to American poker pro Darren Elias, marking a record-tying third WPT title.

No doubt Elias will be returning to Ontario, Canada next month to compete once more in the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic. If he can scoop one more win, he’ll surpass his current equals – Gus Hansen, Carlos Mortenson, David Rheem and Anthony Zinno – as the first player to claim 4 WPT titles.

Note: The WPT Canada tour dates have not yet been finalized. The schedule above is still subject to change until finalization.
