WPT PrimeSummary:

  • WPT Prime is set to return to Aix-en-Provence, Paris, and San Remo in 2024
  • WPT Prime successfully debuted in the three locations earlier this year
  • WPT Global is expected to run online qualifiers for the three stops

With the current season of the World Poker Tour (WPT) coming to a close, the operator is now starting to put together a list of events for next year.

Included in the 2024 line-up are WPT Prime stops in France and Italy, which will all be headlined by a €1,100 Main Event.

WPT Prime Returns to France and Italy

The WPT has just confirmed that the next WPT Prime season will kick off on January 26, 2024, with a stop at Aix-en-Provence, France. Pasino Grand will once again play host to the action which in August 2023 witnessed Samy Boujmala outclass a 457-entry field to take down the €1,100 Main Event for €83,180.

WPT Prime will also return to San Remo, Italy next year, running from May 31 to June 10 at the Casino di San Remo. The inaugural WPT Prime San Remo Main Event which took place back in June attracted 838 entries, and they were ultimately dominated by Simone Andrian who won the tournament for €83,180. Just less than a month after that victory, the Italian poker pro went on to claim the €1,100 PokerStars Summer Festival Malta Main Event for €153,610.

Another confirmed WPT Prime stop for next year is Paris, with the event scheduled for mid-October. The reigning WPT Prime Paris Main Event champion is Fabrice Bigot who captured the title back in January for €177,240 after defeating 1,071 opponents.

All three stops are returning in 2024 after their successful debuts this year. The WPT is running the events in partnership with TexaPoker.

WPT Global Expected to Give Away WPT Prime Passports in 2024

The WPT’s online poker platform, WPT Global, is expected to once again run a WPT Prime Passport promotion in 2024, giving players the chance to qualify for a WPT Prime Main Event of their choice for a lower price.

During the 2023 season, the site hosted passport qualifiers with a buy-in of $110. Winners received a WPT Prime Passport worth $1,500, enough to cover the $1,100 Main Event buy-in. WPT Global also hosted satellites to the passport qualifiers with buy-ins starting at $5.

The 2023 season of WPT Prime consists of a total of 14 stops held across the globe. Only one has yet to play out – the WPT Prime Championship at Wynn Las Vegas which will run as part of the WPT World Championship series this December.
