Casino de Montreal Hosts PokerPro Tournament

Casino de Montreal did not waste seconds in putting their PokerPro gambling tables to good use after putting it up in January. On February 12th, 2008, the casino, which can be found in Quebec casino, is the venue for the biggest world multi-table poker tournament that uses automated poker tables.

The entire event was only presided by four staff members of the casino as players took their places at the twenty-five PokerPro tables at the Casino de Montreal. The $225 buy-in event immediately sold out 2 weeks in advance as about two hundred forty players wanted a chance in the tournament.

In the end, engineering student Mohamed Nadim won the tournament and takes home the $20,000 CAD top money prize. Pierre Rinfret, a Quebec Sports television and radio host finished in the 2nd place and take home $10,000 CAD. The rest of the prize pool was given out to the top 20 players in the tournament.

The CEO of PokerTek, Chris Halligan commented that hosting a tournament this size is always what they dreamed for PokerPro. He added that they are very happy with the result of the tournament and they hope to continue their partnership with Casino de Montreal.

Casino de Montreal is the location of the biggest installation of automated poker tables in the world since January 18th. The Crown Casino in Australia and the Four Winds Casino Resort in Michigan, U.S.A. also held PokerPro tournaments with 100 participants.
