US pro Seth Davies beat 416 other players to win the WPT Canadian Spring Championship main event for C$256,390 ($203,992) as first place prize.
The C$3,500 buy-in tournament was hosted at the Playground Poker Club in Kahnawake, Quebec with a prize pool worth C$1,294,368 ($1,029,843) up for grabs.
During the seven days of high-action poker, some of the players to walk away with a return on their investment included Andy Frankenberger in 48th (C$5,860), Jeff Gross in 45th (C$6,880), Darryll Fish in 41st (C$6,880), Amir Babakhani in 31st (C$7,900), and Antonio Esfandiari in 24th ($10,330).
Six players made it to the final table and after a series of eliminations Seth Davies and Ruben Perceval remained to fight it out for the title. Davies held a 6,780,000 to 5,680,000 chip advantage over Perceval as the two collided in the heads-up round.
Final hand of this duel was played after about 90 minutes when Perceval (8-7) went all-in on a 10-9-4-7-5 board. Davies (K-10) made the call, which ended Ruben's hopes of a win. He had to settle for a second place finish for $180,088 CAD ($115,598 USD).
Davis on the other hand took his live career earnings to $495,552. The 27-year-old's other notable performances have come at the WSOP Main Event where he finished in 123rd place for a $54,851 in 2001.
