At the end of this year, a new poker club called Pierre Charron will open in Paris. It is located near the famous Champs-Élysées, and the club owners are going to host the WPT DeepStacks in February.
On October 30, the club announced the deal with the WSOP, according to which the WSOP Circuit series will be held at this poker club. This festival will return to the capital of France after a two-year hiatus – for the last time, the WSOP Circuit tournaments took place there in 2017.
Within the partnership, the WSOP is planned to be held in three phases. The first of them will be hosted from May 18 to June 1, and dozens of gold rings will be awarded during it. The winner of the Main Event is entitled to six-figure prize money in dollars and a ticket to the Global Casino Championship for $10 000.
Gregory Benac, who is a representative of the Marval Group, has commented on this collaboration:
«It is thrilling to think the World Series of Poker is coming back to Paris. It is a dream come true to host a worldwide poker event such as this at Club Pierre Charron. »
The WSOP management, in turn, is also pleased with the collaboration. They added that such a location of the club will be very convenient for players who are in close proximity to Paris.
