Irvine, CA (November 24, 2022) El World Poker Tour® is having a robust 20th-anniversary season, which has ignited exciting new partnerships for the future. WPT® has joined forces with Texapoker to present a strong offering of WPT Prime festivals in Western Europe.

“Even amidst an incredible 20th-anniversary season, we are preparing for our progression into 2023,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “Partnering with Texapoker provides us with a wonderful opportunity to return the WPT brand to the French market.”

“Eleven years after my first WPT partnership, I am very pleased and proud to work with this brand and to run three stops in France and Italy,” added Apo Chantzis, Texapoker Chairman and CEO.

WPT has signed a two-year partnership with Texapoker for 2023 and 2024. The agreement pledges three poker series each year. A breakdown of the three upcoming festivals for Season XXI is as follows:

  • WPT Prime París – Club Circus Paris – Paris, France
                Festival Dates: Jan 22 – Feb 5
  • WPT Prime San Remo – Casinò di Sanremo – Sanremo, Italy
                Festival Dates: Jun 1 – 11
  • WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence – Pasino Grand – Aix-en-Provence, France
                Festival Dates: Oct 9 – 15

WPT Prime kicks off the Season XXI live tour schedule on Jan. 22 with a festival series at Club Circus Paris in France. The €1,100 buy-in WPT Prime Paris main event runs Feb. 1 – 5.

“To welcome the WPT in our Circus Club in 2023 is a big triumph for the city of Paris, the poker players, our club and our group company” said Club Circus Paris Executive. “Paris is the poker capital of Europe. The Circus brand which is in six countries and two continents continues to develop and this partnership strengthens the Club as a stronghold of Parisian poker.”

WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence (Oct. 9 – 15) is being held at Pasino Grand. This will be the first time WPT has ventured to Aix-en-Provence in southern France.

For both WPT Prime Paris and WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence, PMU.fr will run online satellite tournaments for French players to win their seat to the $1,100 championship events.

“It is a real pleasure to host the satellites for the WPT and we will qualify a maximum of players to offer them the best experience first online and then live,” stated a PMU.fr Executive.

The WPT Prime Sanremo festival series from June 5 – 11 will be held at Casinò di Sanremo in Italy, near the southeastern border of France. In June of 2018, the same property hosted a WPTDeepStacks event.

As an added bonus to the new partnership, Texapoker will undertake WPT World Championship giveaways. They are awarding a 2023 WPT World Championship seat to each of their four French Championship of Poker event winners, running throughout 2023.
