Five new events for WPTDeepStacks in Europe

By Mad Harper

The WPT World Poker Tour has announced further expansion for its popular WPTDeepStacks tour in Europe, with five events added to the 2017 schedule.

 

The next WPT event is WPTDeepstacks on the French Riviera starting May 30 when WPTDeepStacks teams up with PMU.fr for WPTDeepStacks Cannes at Le Croisette Casino Barriere.

 

Vilamoura

The first additional event takes poker’s premier mid-major tournament circuit to Casino Solverde in gorgeous Vilamoura for WPTDeepStacks Portugal. It is the tour’s first trip to Portugal and one that plans to deliver an incredible experience in a spectacular location. Located in the heart of the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region known for its gorgeous views out across the Mediterranean Sea, Casino Solverde is just minutes away from some of the world’s most breathtaking beaches.

 

The full WPTDeepStacks Portugal festival of events runs from August 25 to September 3 with a €200,000 guaranteed Main Event starting August 31.

 

Brussels

Following Portugal comes a trip to Grand Casino Brussels VIAGE in the heart of the European capital. The WPTDeepStacks Brussels festival runs September 11-17 and features a €1,200 Main Event from September 14-17. The magnificent Grand Casino Brussels VIAGE features 39 table games, and its high standards and professional staff are one of the many reasons why the venue has been one of the favorite stops for European poker players.

 

Marrakech

At the end of September, WPTDeepStacks hops over to Marrakech for the PMU.fr WPTDeepStacks Marrakech festival. Held at the famous Moroccan city resort of Casino de Marrakesh, the WPTDeepStacks Marrakesh festival runs September 29 to October 8 with a DH 13,000 (approx. €1,200) Main Event taking place October 5-8. It is the second of three events in conjunction with PMU.fr, and the European online partner of WPTDeepStacks provides a fantastic outlet for players to win packages to this highly anticipated event.

 

Holland

In October, WPTDeepStacks returns to Holland for WPTDeepStacks Netherlands at Holland Casino in Valkenburg. The jam-packed schedule of events runs from October 9-15 with a €1,200 Main Event from October 12-15. WPTDeepStacks Netherlands is the second trip to Holland this year for the tour, following a successful open to the season with WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam. Holland Casino Valkenburg is located at the top of the famous Cauberg, one of the most beautiful locations in South Limburg.

 

Deauville

The final stop for WPTDeepStacks in Europe during 2017 will take the tour to France for the PMU.fr WPTDeepStacks Deauville festival. The full schedule of events takes place December 5-11 at Casino Barrière Deauville, with the €1,200 Main Event running December 8-11. The city’s luxurious setting is just a short walking distance from the beach and harbor in the seaside resort of Normandy, making this location ideal for an unforgettable experience. The event is part of a two-year deal between the World Poker Tour and Barrière Group.

 

WPTDeepstacks in the US
In addition to all the new European stops, there are several US editions of the tour taking place: WPTDeepStacks Tampa in June, WPTDeepStacks Reno in August, WPTDeepStacks Immokalee and WPTDeepStacks Oklahoma in September, WPTDeepstacks Iowa and WPTDeepStacks San Diego in October.
