The first marquee event of the 2019 World Cup of Cards is the Grand Prix Canada, a $200 + $20 NL Hold’em tournament that boasts a massive $500,000 guarantee. There are 17 Day 1s in the event including 5 online Day 1s on partypoker and another 12 Day 1s live here at Playground. Live Day 1s will begin on Wednesday, January 23, but the online Day 1s have already begun – Online Day 1A was held on January 20th at 8:00pm.
This first Day 1 in the event attracted an impressive 114 entries, and after the full 18 levels were played, just 13 players remained, all of whom have qualified for Day 2.
The rest of the online Day 1s will continue this week, and we’ll be recording the Day 2 qualifiers throughout the event in a single Combined results table so players may judge their progress as the Day 1s continue.
Online Day 1B is set to begin tonight at 8:00pm, only on partypoker.
