At least a Canadian won’t win this year’s WSOP. We’re tired of those Junior Americans up north winning poker tournaments.
Having just lost something like 23 million chips a few hands earlier to Ivan Demidov, Scott Montgomery was down to around 7M and bound to go out soon. We just can’t see Montgomery patiently waiting for a monster. He’s the type of guy who would shove with one card and a pretzel if he could and say something with his Canadian accent like "Well I’m pretty sure you don’t have a pretzel so I know I have at least one live card even though a pretzel isn’t really a card eh but please don’t call but even if you do and I get knocked out I can probably afford to buy the Vancouver Canucks now."
So he shoved with A-3 and was called by Peter Eastgate‘s 6-6. Montgomery flopped an Ace and turning a set, but a 6 fell on the river giving Eastgate a boat.
Montgomery is gone in 5th place, banking $3,096,768.
