WSOPC Paris marks the second time in 12 months that the WSOP has called France home for a busy festival. WSOPC Cannes took place at the Le Croisette Casino Barriere in Cannes between April 12 and 25 and awarded 12 WSOPC rings.

The WSOPC Cannes Main Event cost slightly more than the upcoming Paris stop, commanding a €1,350 buy-in instead of €1,200. It drew in 650 entrants who created an €842,400 prize pool that the top 95 finishers shared.

Top-tier players, including Michael Kane, Dinesh Alt, Robbie Bull, Julien Sitbon, Erwann Pecheux, Julien Martini, and Maria Lampropulos, were among those who cashed but fell short of the final table.

Bruno Fitoussi and Roman Hrabec were among the finalists, with Frenchman Eric Koskas defeating British pro Ben Jones heads-up for the title, the WSOPC ring, and €138,000 in prize money.

WSOPC Paris has the potential to be even larger than Cannes, so stay with PokerNews throughout the festival and beyond.
