WPTDeepStacks moved to Canada over the weekend. It started with the CA$1,650 Main Event that played out through the early part of the week and ended on Tuesday.

Martin Gaudreault-Remillard emerged as the winner from a field of 686 entries at the end of the event. He bagged the first prize of CA$186,600 ($141,300) which also included a ticket to the WPTDeepStacks Championship. He is not a very frequent player, with his last win in live cash coming way back in 2011.

The event had a guarantee of CA$750,000 that was surpassed with a figure just under CA$1 million at the end. Gaudreault-Remillard was fifth in chips and a little under 25 big blinds when entering the final table. Daniel Le was leading the chip count with more than 100 big blinds on the final table.

The Final Table

Adam Lamers was the first one to exit the final table. He ran into Julio Cacoilo's pocket kings and left at the ninth position for CA$18,285. This is his second five-figure cash in less than a month. Previously, he won $29,804 at the Alberta Poker Championship.

After this, Le removed Johnson Penyanseng at the eighth position and Mitchell Dredge at the seventh. Julio Cacoilo reclaimed the chip lead after he took down Karim-Olivier Kamal and Leo Leclerc at the sixth and fifth position respectively. Gaudreault-Remillard came into action after this and removed former leader Daniel Le at the fourth position.

With only three players left on the table, the game ended real quick when Cacoilo busted Carter for the third position and in just about 30 minutes, Gaudreault-Remillard defeated Cacoilo to triumph in the event.
