WSOP Europe on the move

17 December 2012

PARIS -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The 7th Annual World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) presented by BarrierePoker.fr is moving to one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, this time taking up residence in France’s oldest and most historic casino – the lakefront Casino Barrière Enghien-les-Bains in greater Paris.

The 2013 WSOP Europe will be held from October 11-24, 2013 in the urban getaway town of Enghien-les-Bains, an affluent suburb less than 10 miles from the French capital. The Barrière-owned resort facilities have undergone significant renovation, and now include Paris’s number-one spa and wellness complex, “The Spark.”

With state-of-the-art convention/congress facilities that will allow all tournament play in one room, an opulent 500-seat theatre to host final tables and television production, the signature spa to rejuvenate players, and two hotels as part of its complex, this location promises to be the most comfortable and conducive setup for poker players in the WSOPE’s seven-year history.

“Part of our vision for WSOP Europe is to mix poker and pleasure – and introduce players to some of the most exciting destinations in Europe,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “Barrière’s facilities in Enghien are amazing and there are likely 12 million Parisians all trying to make sure “Phillipe” Hellmuth doesn’t win another bracelet on French soil. With our ideal dates scheduled to avoid conflicts for traveling players, expanded TV coverage and qualifiers planned, we expect to be back in record-setting mode in 2013.”

While the complete event schedule is still to be finalized, it is expected that seven WSOP gold bracelet events will be on the calendar, plus a high-rollers event, and an assortment of satellites, cash games and side events, all concluding with the €10,000 Main Event.

Enghien-les-Bains is a wealthy suburb of Paris, with its own train station, just a 10-minute commute from the Gare du Nord (North Station). Gare du Nord connects to the Paris metro (subway) service, and also runs trains to Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom, including Chunnel service to London.

Special rates for players will be made available on WSOP.com at a later date at the Grand Hotel Barrière, the Hotel du Lac and additional hotels in the greater Paris area.

The previous two WSOPEs were held in Cannes, France, while from 2007-10, WSOPE was held in London, England.
