WPT announces Grand Prix de Paris

Friday, 22 April 2011

The World Poker Tour will be heading to France this September for the Grand Prix de Paris.

The Aviation Club de France will be the venue for the three-event series which will run from 1st to 11th September. Top billing will go to the €7,500 Main Event which will run over six days and culminate in a televised final table. Theo Jorgensen won last year's WPT Paris Main Event, outlasting a 247-runner field to pocket a first prize of almost €634,000.

The big spenders will also be hitting for French capital for a three-day, €15,000 buy-in high roller event. Freddy Deeb took the honours in 2010, beating Sorel Mizzi to the title.

Organisers have also revealed details of a new event, The Omaha Cup. The two-day event has €5,000 buy-in and is expected to attract some of the best PLO players from across the world.
