After London and Cannes, the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) now moves to near Paris, making the Casino Barrière Enghien-les-Bains its new home.
The European series of WSOP, the WSOPE was first organised in 2007, with only three events, at the Casino at the Empire in London, UK. In 2011, the show moved to across the Channel to France, more precisely to the Casino Barrière in Cannes, according to the decision of WSOPE owner Caesars Interactive Entertainment (the former Harrah’s Interactive Entertainment).

The 2011 and 2012 tournaments were held in Cannes, but Caesars have announced that they contract a new venue for WSOPE 2013, while their partner remains to be the Barriére Group: they move to the Barrière Enghien-les-Bains, about 10 kilometres from Paris. One of the most prestigious casino in France, the establishment will house the entire WSOPE in the 500 seats theatre room.

“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. 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,” WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said.

Also announced is the date of WSOPE 2013: the tournament will be held 11 through 25 October. While there is no detailed schedule yet, a total of seven events are expected.
