The World Poker Tour is back for Season 10, with WPT Paris (officially known as WPT Grand Prix de Paris) on the schedule with a stop at the famous Aviation Club on tap.
International stops have been an area of focus for the WPT since its purchase by PartyPoker, and what better city than Paris to host a WPT event, giving players incentive at both the tables and away from them to circle early September on their poker calendars.
WPT Paris will feature a €7,500 main event as well as a High Roller event with a €15,000 buy-in; the High Roller events are a new popular edition that give players a second crack at a big payday if they bust the main event, as they’re scheduled to run in the closing days of WPT tournaments when they’re offered.
Tournament circuit regulars keep an eye out for French events as the standard of play is often much softer than at corresponding EPT events, so WPT Paris should provide plenty of value for your money.
The buy-in is also larger than most European stops on the WPT circuit, so a big turnout could produce a very hefty prizepool to be divied out to the top finishers.
PartyPoker is your best choice as far as winning your WPT Paris trip package online, as it runs online finals on Sundays for most major WPT events. Players can buy directly into the finals and take a crack at winning a $15,000 trip package or satellite in via cheaper daily satellites and freerolls.
