Full Tilt Pro Scott Montgomery Wins WSOP Event #36: $1,000 NLHE

Full Tilt Pro Scott Montgomery Wins WSOP Event #36: $1,000 NLHEFull Tilt Poker’s very own Scott Montgomery has picked up a first career WSOP bracelet, after defeating a field of 3,102 players at the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em event, to take home the first place prize of $481,670.
The Canadian pro has been a force to be reckoned with ever since taking up poker in 2004, but it is the WSOP where Montgomery was really brought to the attention of the poker world. In 2008, he made the final table of the WSOP Main Event, eventually finishing in 5th place and collecting $3,088,012 in prize money. Now, with his latest win Montgomery has earned more than $4 million from live tournament cashes, with $3,658,790 of those winnings coming from WSOP events.
As the final table got underway in Event #36, Scott Montgomery was sitting short on chips, but still played a patient game and sat back as fellow short stack Michael Michnik went out in 9th ($35,986) after pushing pre-flop with Kd-Jh, only to run into Mick Carlson’s pocket rockets.
Timothy Beeman was eliminated in 8th ($46,985) after getting it all-in pre-flop holding pocket 5’s only to be called by Peter Dufek holding J’s. Soon after, though, Dufek was then knocked out himself in 7th ($62,033).
Scott Montgomery’s patience then payed off after John Dolan holding A-K doubled him up to 3,200,000 chips. Montgomery’s was holding a badly dominated K-Q, but made a flush after four hearts hit the board, the upshot of which was that Montgomery became the new chip leader while John Dolan was out soon after in 6th ($82,804).
Sebastien Roy with Ad-9d, lost a race against Adam Richardson’s pocket 5’s to go out in 5th ($111,783), while Montgomery dispatched a short stacked Daniel Fuhs in 4th ($152,655) when his 6’s held up against his opponent’s Kc-9h.
Scott Montgomery’s then eliminated a short stacked Adam Richardson in 3rd ($210,892) to go heads-up against Mick Carlson. With the blinds playing a hefty role, Mick Carlson shoved his remaining 825,000 chips pre-flop holding Kd-2s, but Montgomery was never folding in that spot with his Ad-7d. The board hit neither players hand and consequently Montgomery took down the tournament with ace high.
Carlson had to console himself with the $297,996 runners-up prize, while Scott Montgomery added another $481,670 to his bankroll, as well as the all-important WSOP winners bracelet.
