Jonathan Bussieres bagged the chip lead for Day 1c of the Quantum No Limit Hold em Tournament. This was the third starting flight of ten. The Quantum is the first event of the World Cup of Cards, a 28-event tournament series held at Playground Poker Club.

So far 38 players are through to Day 2 of this $200,000 Guaranteed Tournament. Players can still play remaining flights and try to make Day 2 again. If they make Day 2 again, not only will they take home the min cash, which would be at least CAD $400, depending on the flight, but an extra CAD $1,500 for each stack they forfeit. The players would take their largest stack forward.

The next Quantum flight is Tuesday and the buy in is CAD $250. The final ten percent of the field will advance to Day 2. Day 2 will be September 13.

This ends another day at the World Cup of Cards, tomorrow at noon there is a CAD $100 No Limit Hold em tournament, Day 3 of the WPT National Montreal (with six players returning to compete for CAD $80,000), and a CAD $220 Pot-Limit Omaha Eight or Better tournament.

Pokernews will be here throughout the festival, bringing you all the news, updates, and photos. Follow @pokernews on Twitter for live-updates, Periscope broadcasts, and more. Also, follow Pokernews on Facebook.

Tyler Lee Can't Lose

Brentharrington

Tyler Lee was the short stack on the bubble for Day 2 of the Quantum No Limit Hold em Tournament. He got all in two times on the bubble and won both times, and both times he doubled through Timothy Deering.

The first hand he got all in with {10-}{10-} against Deering's {a-}{k-}.

The board ran out {q-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{q-Hearts} and Lee earned his first double up, bringing him to about 39,000.

Then he got all in again, this time with {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}. Deering had {a-Spades}{4-Spades} and flopped a bit of a sweat with {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{7-Spades}, but the turn came {8-Diamonds} and the river came {9-Clubs} so Lee doubled up again.

"I'm not going to play with him anymore," Deering said, "someone else has to."

Levesque Cripple Pazarka; Hock Finishes

AnTh0nyWTF

There was about 70,000 in the middle and a board of {6-Hearts}{j-Spades}{8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. The dealer was counting Alain Levesque's stack as he had called an all-in from Grant Pazarka.

Pazarka had {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} but was beat by Levesque's {j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. After paying Levesque's 81,900, Pazarka was left with 5,500.

The very next hand, Pazarka moved all-in preflop and was called by William Hock and Tyler Lee. The two checked down a board of {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Hock tabled {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} to claim the pot and eliminate Pazarka.
