The Marrakech Poker Open will be back this year, and it will take place at the popular Casino de Marrakech from September 2 – 11.
The festival will feature a total of 23 tournaments available in a wide range of buy-ins.
It isn’t the first time that Casino de Marrakech is hosting a huge poker event. In 2019, it played host to the WPTDeepStacks Main Event which attracted a 545-entry field, ultimately topped by Spanish poker pro Alejandro Roman who took home DH 1,100,000 ($114,880) in first-place prize.
In 2020, just before the pandemic, the venue was among the stops of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) International Circuit. The Casino de Marrakech schedule was headlined by the DH 15,000 buy-in Main Event which was won by Italian player Samiyel Duzgun for DH 1,600,000 ($169,018).

The Marrakech Poker Open gets underway with the MPO Opener (September 2-3) which has an entry fee of DH 4,000 (€400). The festival culminates in the MPO Main Event which costs DH 13,200 (€1,300) to enter and features two Day 1s taking place on September 8 and 9.
