Two-time WPT Montreal final tableist Sylvain Siebert is known for his uncanny ability to build chip-leading stacks in the early stages of the tournament, and he is up to his usual shenanigans here in Day 1B of the CPPT.
When we caught up to the action on Table 69 he had just called an over-shove from Dustin Melanson on the turn of a board. Sylvain tabled an only had to fade two outs on the river to stay ahead of Dustin’s , and once the river brought the he secured an early double-up, sending his opponent to an early exit.
Registration is slowly climbing and has reached 53 runners, however the total tally is now only 129 entries and still quite far from the $400,000 guarantee. Anyone who is on the fence about playing today should take into consideration the added value this tournament is likely to have… Late registration is open until 4pm today.
