MONTGOMERY WINS WSOP GOLD BRACELET

Scott Montgomery once again proved his class by winning another Championship. Scott Montgomery was the winner of the $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship at the 2010 World Series of Poker. This marked his first career WSOP gold bracelet victory after eight previous cashes here in Las Vegas. Montgomery is best known for his fifth-place finish in the 2008 WSOP Main Event. He earned $3,096,078 for that outstanding performance and came up big again at this year’s series, with a first-place cash totaling $481,760.

Montgomery is 28-year-old professional poker player from Ottawa, Ontario (Canada). He became the fourth Canadian player this year to win a gold bracelet – following wins by fellow countrymen Miguel Proulx, Aadam Daya, and Pascal Lefrancois.

Montgomery appears to have no difficulty overcoming huge field-sizes. When he final tabled the 2008 world championship, Montgomery outlasted 6,840 players. This time, he overcame 3,102 players en route to his first major victory.
