The 2024 WPT Schedule Has Been Announced

The World Poker Tour (WPT) and TexaPoker are working together to have three WPT events in France and Italy in 2024. These events, called 2024 WPT Prime, will be held in Aix-en-Provence, Sanremo, and Paris. They were well-received in 2023, which is why they’re coming back.

While big poker tournaments naturally get a lot of attention, the WPT Prime events that cost €1,100 (or the equivalent in your local currency) are also worth noticing. In 2023, many people have shown a strong interest in these medium-stakes tournaments.

2023 WPT Prime Results

In 2023, the WPT Prime season started in Paris. Over 1,000 players joined, and they contributed to a total prize of €1,028,160. A player named Fabrice Bigot from France won the main prize and received €177,240. This was the biggest prize he had ever won in person. Shortly after, Bigot came in third place in the European Poker Tour Paris Main Event and won an even higher prize of €535,850, setting a new record for his career.

WPT Prime went on a big trip around the world after being in Paris. It visited Australia and Cambodia before coming back to Europe for WPT Prime Amsterdam. In Amsterdam, 1,000 players joined the event at the Holland Casino. A player from Germany named Philip Hollederer did the best and won €161,552.

WPT Prime made stops in India, Slovakia, and Vietnam. Then it visited Sanremo, Italy, Aix-en-Provence, and Taiwan. The most unexpected part of the tour was the event in Liechtenstein, a small country not famous for poker. David Kozma from Hungary won there and will always remember it with joy. If you had won, you would have received $253,399 and the title of WPT Prime champion.

The last big poker tournament of 2023 is the WPT Prime Championship. It happens at Wynn Las Vegas in December as part of the WPT World Championship festival. To join, it costs $1,100. The total prize money guaranteed by the World Poker Tour is a huge $5 million.
