The Main Event in the Montréal Poker Expo has just come to an end, and after 4 days of poker, the starting field of 647 players was reduced down to only one finalist: Chan An Luong! When play fell down to three players, an agreement was made whereby each player took a share of the prize pool based on their chip counts at the time, leaving an additional $12,500 to be won by the eventual tournament champion - who would also take home the beautiful Montréal Poker Expo Main Event Champion's Trophy.

Event 12 – $500 + $50 NL Hold’em Freeze
After deep-running an EPT Main Event last week in Barcelona, Rodney Ramalho returned to Montreal just in time to play in the $500 + $50 Event, part of the Montréal Poker Expo. He stayed under the radar for most of the tournament, until play fell down to 6 players, where a combination of run-good and play-good propelled him into the chip lead.
He entered heads-up play versus opponent Trevor Delaney with roughly a 3-to-1 chip advantage, and never looked back. On the last hand of play, Trevor opened his button to 105,000, to which Rodney replied with a 3bet to 275,000. Trevor quickly moved all-in for just over 1-million, and got an even quicker call.
Rodney’s big-slick held for the win on a board, and with that pot he became our Event 12 Champion! He collected a sweet $14,830 for his finish, as well as a Montréal Poker Expo Champion’s Trophy.
Event 12 Champion: Rodney Ramalho – $14,830.00
Event 12 Runner-Up: Trevor Delaney – $11,110.00
