The third edition of the World Poker Tour National Paris will be back at Cercle Clichy-Montmartre from Nov. 20-30, 2015, and the €1,200 Main Event will take place Nov. 26-30.
With a wealth of the two prior experiences, the Main Event will boast a €500,000 guaranteed prize pool, 30,000 in starting chips, and feature a reentry format. But, that's not all the festival will have to offer.
The action will kick off with a bang, as on Nov. 20 the opening €290 event features a €50,000 guaranteed prize pool with two starting days and reentry format. Then on Nov. 24, a €2,200 High Roller will take place that lasts two days and has a guarantee of €100,000. Outside of those events, there will also be a survivor event, a pot-limit Omaha event, and a big stack event, all with affordable buy-ins, but plenty of money to be won.
Last year's WPT National Paris €1,200 Main Event attracted 615 entries and generated a prize pool of €738,250. The winner was Laurent Polito, who captured €140,000 and has won the event two times. The High Roller event attracted 71 entries, generated a prize pool of €140,500, and was won by Emrah Cakmak.
