Partouche Poker Tour 2011 Schedule

Posted by Andy on August 21, 2011 at 12:52 BST

Partouche Poker TourSeptember is going to be a busy month for UK poker players. Having fought the GUKPT Goliath at the end of August and collected their plaques at the British Poker Awards, players then have a choice of heading over to Ireland for the UKIPT in Dublin or flying to Cannes for the climax of the Partouche Poker Tour, before competing in the WPT in Malta and returning to blighty for the EPT London at the end of the month. Of all those events, the one which is the least familiar – the Partouche Poker Tour – is the one which is the most valuable.

One Million Euros to the Winner

Although the Main Event prize pool is guaranteed at four million Euros, the first three seasons have generated first prizes of at least one million Euros, with last year´s victor – Team PokerStars pro Vanessa Selbst collecting a cool €1.3 million. Although the tournament is predominantly competed between French poker players (online qualification is limited to a French poker site), “names” such as Phil Ivey, Phil Laak, Gus Hansen and Eric Seidel (recently second in the inaugural Epic Poker league Main Event) have played the Main Event in the past, and this year Phil Hellmuth has indicated that the Partouche Poker Tour is on his schedule.

Partouche Poker Tour Main Event

The Partouche Poker Tour Main Event takes place in the Palm Beach Casino in Cannes between Monday 12th September and Saturday 17th September, with players who make it to the final table returning to the venue in November to contest the valuable first prize. The buy-in of €8,500 provides players with 30,000 chips each (hope they have enough to go round!) for the 90 minute levels on the two Day 1s, which increase to 120 minute levels on Days 2-5. The supporting side events include three Main Event satellites, a Ladies tournament and a €5,000 buy-in Heads Up tournament which, along with all the Main Event action, will be broadcast on EuroSport.
