Jose Montes Wins 2017 WPTDeepStacks Maryland Live! Casino $1,500 Main Event
Jose Montes became on Monday the latest WPTDeepStacks Main Event champion after scoring a victory at Maryland Live! Casino. Montes beat a field of 337 other entries to add another title to his former live poker accomplishments.
The player won a WSOP Circuit Main Event in Choctaw back in 2015 for a gold ring and a first-place prize of $352,669, his career’s heftiest cash. A month later he bested another live event’s field – the Heartland Poker Tour Black Hawk $1,650 Main Event for $240,523 in prize money.
His live tournament career includes 59 in-the-money finishes in a number of prestigious events. Montes collected $95,032 for his latest poker triumph at Maryland Live!. Thus, his poker bankroll grew to more than $1.1 million.
The winner’s first-place prize also included a seat into the WPTDeepStacks Championship, worth $3,000. The event, which will mark the end of the tour’s fourth season, is scheduled to take place on December 1-4, 2017 at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, California. It will offer participants the opportunity to win a share of the $1 million guaranteed prize pool.
However, WPTDeepStacks still has many stops to complete before the time for its season-ending tournament comes. Holland Casino Amsterdam in the Dutch capital is set to be the next such stop. The festival is slated to kick off on May 5 and to run through May 13.
