This exciting competitive event will see the best poker players come up against each other to the sublime backdrop of the French Riviera.

For 12 days from 12-23 April, the Casino Barrière Cannes Le Croisette will be the epicenter of dramatic competition, when players will have the chance to win the 12 WSOP Circuit rings, one of which is online with PMU Poker.

“We are very proud that the WSOP has decided to extend its long-term partnership with the Casino Barrière Cannes Le Croisette, which first started in 2011. This is an eagerly awaited event for players and is a leading competition in France and Europe,” WSOP Vice-President Grégory Chochon explains.

Our aim is to continue to offer players an exceptional experience in partnership with PMU Poker,” adds Clément Martin Saint-Léon, the Barrière Group’s Executive VP for Gaming.
