Partypoker WPTDeepStacks Descends on Deauville
22 Oct

Deauville in December is the next stop on the WPTDeepStacks European schedule, the famous French town getting ready to welcome the partypoker-sponsored tour to the Casino Barrière De Deauville for a six-day pokerfest from the 4th until the 9th of December

The hugely-popular tour has been criss-crossing the globe all year, several US stops interspersed with European venues, and the partypoker/WPTDS crew ranging as far afield as Korea and this week’s Johannesburg – a delighted Maria Ho showing off her South African trophy in the company of her beau, high-roller extraordinaire Rainer Kempe….

Main Event

The festival itself runs from the 4th, but the flagship Main Event – a €1,200 affair – kicks off on the 6th, allowing 4 days to determine the 2018 WPTDeepStacks Deauville champion, a title won last year by Frenchman Bruno Benveniste for €93,700 ($110,686).

Satellite your way in

If you don’t fancy ponying up the full buy-in, partypoker have already announced their satellite schedule for Deauville, from $5-50 up to $530 and with Fast and Hypers thrown in for those who don’t like to mess around – although if you make it to Deauville just remember its skillful DeepStack play that will reap the rewards.

Side schedule

As always, there is a bit of something for everyone on offer in the LIVE sphere, a €2k ($2,092) High Roller as well as the €100 ($114) Ladies Event and the intriguing 3K Platinum event to be considered as well.

Guess the Entries and win PP Live Dollars

The evergreen ‘Guess the Entries’ competition continues at Deauville, one lucky person walking off with 1000 PP LIVE Dollars for coming closest to guessing the final number of runners in the Main Event.

The PP LIVE Dollars currency, which can also be won online, allows you to pay buy-ins, hotels, travel and a host of other tournament-related expenses in one fell swoop, and to submit a guess, simply click here and enter your guess with your country of residence.
