A Poker Championship Near Paris

After three initial editions in London and then two years in Cannes, in the south of France, the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) will be held ithis October in the oldest casino in France, the lakefront casino Barrière Enghien-les-Bains.

The move from Cannes to Paris was recently announced by Ty Stewart: “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.” Believing that the location promises to be the “most comfortable and conducive setup for poker players in the WSOPE’s seven-year history”, Stewart described the Barrière’s facilities in Enghien as “amazing.” Located just a few kilometers from Paris, the casino has gone through several remodeling projects and includes a large convention facility to handle the tournament as well as a 500-seat theater to host the televised final tables. Two hotels, a spa and a wellness center are also part of the complex.
