History could be made on Thursday at Playground Poker Club. Mike Sexton is searching for his first World Poker Tour Montreal Main Event title, and second in chips, Ema Zajmovic, could be the first woman to ever win an open WPT event.
Mike Sexton, a WPT commentator and Poker Hall of Fame member, has done just about everything in poker. A World Poker Tour title is something he’d much like to cross off the list. Sexton will carry the chip lead into play on Day 5 bringing a stack of 6,215,000. Zajmovic follows behind with 5,385,000.
