  1. [caption width="640"] Seth Davies beat out 470 other players to win the WPT Canadian Spring Championship. (Joe Giron photo)[/caption] Just over 10 days ago, the World Poker Tour put a bow on Season 14. Thursday afternoon in Montreal, Quebec, the first champion of Season 15 was crowned with the conclusion of the WPT Canadian Spring Championship at the Playground Poker Club. It also likely going to become known as the Seth Davies show. Davies came into the six-handed final table with the second biggest stack behind only Ruben Perceval. That didn’t stop him from being active and he found himself playing the role of executioner early and often on his way to the first major win of his career and the $226,893 first place cash. Tony Dunst, making his fifth WPT final table appearance, wasn’t able to add to his chip stack on Thursday and was the first player eliminated. Thomas Taylor threw in a UTG raise to 100,000 and Davies called before Dunst moved all in. Taylor folded, but Davies called and tabled [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"], while Dunst showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4h"] flop didn’t help Dunst, but the [poker card="3d"] turn gave the partypoker ambassador extra outs. The [poker card="ks"] river wasn’t one of them and he was left with the second sixth place finish of his WPT career. While that hand propelled Davies into the chip lead, the next elimination put Davies in a position to control the table the rest of the afternoon. All he had to do was call two all ins in front of him while holding the best hand. Action folded to Guillaume Nolet on the button and he moved all in for 695,000 (14 big blinds). Taylor came over the top from the small blind for 2,500,000. Davies called from the big blind and watched as Taylor showed [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"] and Nolet showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] before flipping over [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"]. The board ran out [poker card="jd"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="jc"][poker card="6s"] and Davies eliminated Taylor in fourth and Nolet in fifth and suddenly found himself with 7,835,000 of the 12,465,000 chips in play with only three players remaining. It took only another eight hands to reach heads-up play. Davies opened from the button to 130,000 before Joel Miller made it 350,000 from the small blind. Perceval cold four bet all in for 3,300,000, forcing Davies to fold but soliciting an all in call from Miller. Perceval showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] and Perceval turned over [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="8d"] board brought no relief for Perceval and he was out in third place, while Miller had climbed to within striking distance of Davies’ lead. When heads-up play started, Davies held 6,780,000 and Perceval had 5,680,000. Perceval eventually took a 3-2 lead over Davies, but that was as close as Perceval would get to the title. After 90 minutes of one-on-one action, Davies re-took the lead and never gave it up again. Just 45 minutes after getting the big stack back, Davies finished Perceval off for good. Davies raised to 275,000 and Perceval called to see a flop of [poker card="th"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"]. Perceval checked, Davies bet 375,000 and Perceval threw in a check-raise to 1,075,000. Davies called. The turn was the [poker card="7h"] and Perceval lead out for 800,000 and Davies called again. The river was the [poker card="5d"] and Perceval moved all in for 2,880,000. Davies called and after Perceval showed [poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"] tabled [poker card="kh"][poker card="td"] to take the pot with a pair of tens. The $3,500 CAD ($2,720 US) buy-in event attracted 417 players. Final Table Payouts Seth Davies - $226,893 Ruben Perceval - $148,833 Joel Miller - $95,512 Thomas Taylor - $70,628 Guillaume Nolet - $53,025 Tony Dunst - $42,479
