Guay’s victory was made even more memorable by the energetic support he received from friends and family.

This win, celebrated on Canada Day, was a testament to his skill and tenacity.

The event attracted a whopping 4,303 entrants on Day 1, amassing a prize pool of $2,194,530. Among them were notable poker players, such as Erik Cajelais, who narrowly missed the final table. The tournament reached its climax on Day 3, with the field whittling down to an unofficial final table following the elimination of Christian Dalder.

Subsequent eliminations were rapid, with players like David Stellmon and Paul Hindmarch making their exits. The final six players then battled it out on the main stage. This stage witnessed the elimination of Gaetan Balleur, the first to fall, followed by Romain Kowalczyk and Jonathan Fhima.

On the final day, Guay, Taylor, and Stolzenfeld returned to the table with Taylor in the lead. As the play heated up, Guay soon sent Stolzenfeld packing, setting the stage for the final showdown. The heads-up match saw Guay starting with a significant chip lead and ended swiftly. Guay’s nine-six beat Taylor’s queen-ten, securing his victory and the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.
