By RTR Dennis
From the opulent Palaces of Versailles to the iconic Arc De Triomphe, Paris is home to some amazing attractions. The City of Love is also home to one of the world's richest poker tournaments in the WPT Grand Prix de Paris. Last year's WPT Paris featured a €1,624,500 ($2,045,223) prize pool, and the champion, Matt Salsberg, earned €380,000 ($478,415) of this amount.
Now bwin Poker are giving players an opportunity to compete in this big tournament through their variety of 2013 WPT Grand Prix de Paris satellites. These satellites run from now until October 13th, and buy-ins range from free to $700. If you can win a $700 satellite, you'll be collecting a $13,000 WPT Paris prize package. Here's a quick look atwhat each $13k package offers:
- €7,500 ($9,750) Main Event buy-in
- $200 Aviation Club de France (tournament location) mandatory membership
- $3,050 for travel, spending money and hotel stay
If you're able to win one of these packages, you'll be playing in the 2013 WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event from October 25th-30th.
