World Poker Tour: The step of Amnéville abandoned

The World Poker Tour is one of the best live poker circuit in the world alongside the WSOP. In recent years, the WPT made a stopover in France with the WPT Grand Prix de Paris and the WPT Amnéville. On its first visit in Amnéville in 2010, the World Poker Tour had a great ambition on the future of this circuit in France. The main event hosted a field of 543 players who paid a buy-in of € 3,500 but many players admitted having been disappointed with this step in the Lorraine region. Sam El Sayed won the WPT Amnéville 2010 and pocketed € 426,000. The following year, the stage record a big fallen in attendance with only 379 participants because of this disappointment.

Faced with this decline of the attendance rate and the geographical location less glamorous, the World Poker Tour decided not to renew the contract for 2012 for another step of the WPT in Seven Casino Amnéville. Even if the WPT Grand Prix de Paris in 2011 registered the same decrease compared to last year but Paris is Paris and it should be noted also that the buy-in of € 7,500 was twice of that of Amnéville. But despite this bad news, Seven Casino already focused on another key event in France: the France Poker Series. This event is scheduled from May 10 to 13 for for a buy-in of € 1,100. To return in the international circuit, Seven Casino could be the new host of the European Poker Tour.
