Patrick Partouche, owner of the Partouche Poker Tour has confirmed that this year’s Main Event will be the last following a row over guaranteed prize money at this week’s Grand Final.
Partouche took to the microphone before the start of the Day 3 action in Cannes and according to the Winamax blog said, “For forty years I have dedicated my life, my name, my family, to gaming, including poker, my passion. And now I hear that what we do is not enough, is not honest. The Partouche Poker Tour bears my name, that of my family. I will not accept, my staff will not accept, that people can say ‘Partouche are thieves’, ‘Partouche are cheats’. As a result, this week you attended the last edition of the Partouche Poker Tour.”The news follows a huge row with players over the prize pool at this week’s Partouche Poker Tour. Players had expected the prize pool to be a guaranteed €5m but a smaller than expected field meant that just €4.2m would be paid out.
