The PokerNews live reporting team is ready for a week of action from the French coast. We'll be keeping track of all the plays in both the €5.300 PokerStars.fr European Poker Tour Main Event and the €10,300 High Roller.
Today is Day 1A and with a record breaking French Poker Series already in the books, we expect a big field here for the PokerStars.fr European Poker Tour. Team PokerStars Pros Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Julien Brecard and Marcin Horecki are among the many players who are taking part today. Some 170 seats have been won for the EPT Deauville Poker Festival Main Event, including EPT London champion David Vamplew, EPT Barcelona champion Kent Lundmark, Jeremy Nock, Paul Testud, Michael Fratty, EPT London finalist Ludovic Geilich and Russian player Yury Gulyy, who was 15th here last season.
We're supposed to start at 12pm local time, keep your eyes right here on this spot.
