WPT National Canadian Spring Championship Day 3: Daniel Gagne Leads Final Table

WPT National Canadian Spring Championship Day 3: Daniel Gagne Leads Final Table 0001

On Monday, the 2014 World Poker Tour National Canadian Spring Championship played down from 39 players to the final table of six. Leading the way with 8 million in chips was Daniel Gagne, though five others are still in contention for the $160,999 first-place prize.

Seat 5Alexander Wong7,505,000 (50 bb)
Seat 6Daniel Gagne8,000,000 (53 bb)

According to the WPT Blog, action recommenced in Level 25 (15,000/30,000/5,000) and it didn’t take long for the first elimination to occur. It happened when Edouard Dupuis opened for 65,000 and received two callers. When the flop fell {j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, Dupuis moved all in for 200,000 and just Sam Chartier called.

Dupuis: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Chartier: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

Chartier had slow played his pocket rockets, and he scored the elimination after the {5-Hearts} appeared on the turn followed by the {10-Clubs} on the river. Dupuis took home $4,709 for his 39th-place finish.

From there the eliminations continued to mount and included Danny Ayoub (36th - $4,919), Sammy Chao (32nd - $4,919), Eric Davis (30th - $4,919), Chartier (26th - $5,770), and Daniel Cote (25th - $5,770).

Daniel Cote

Cote fell in Level 26 (20,000/40,000/5,000) when he got his stack all in preflop holding the {k-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} only to run into the {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs} of Nicholas Petrina. The {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop gave Cote some chop outs, but he was left wanting as both the {4-Spades} turn and {A-Clubs} river failed to help him.

Before the end of the night, twenty more players hit the rail including Alexandre Lavigne (21st - $7,473), Eric Afriat (20th - $7,473), Ami Alibay (12th - $12,014), Brent Wheeler (9th - $16,082), Sylvain Siebert (8th - $21,570), and Pierre Guenette (7th - $27,056).

The fourth and final day of play will kick off at Noon local time on Tuesday. Of course PokerNews will bring you a recap of the action upon completion of play.
