June is just a couple weeks away, and so is WPTDeepStacks Sanremo. Taking place June 4-10, 2018, Casino Sanremo and the stunning coast of Northwest Italy will be buzzing with poker action across nine WPTDS events that includes the €1,000 buy-in WPTDS Sanremo Main Event.
The festival kicks off with the two-day, €300 buy-in no-limit hold’em opening event that features unlimited reentry, a 20,000-chip starting stack, and 40-minute levels. This event starts on June 4 and ends on June 5.
The WPTDS Sanremo €1,000 Main Event kicks off on June 7 at 5 p.m. local time with the first of three starting flights. The second and third starting flights take place on June 8 at 1 p.m. and 9 p.m., respectively. The first two starting flights will see the players start with 30,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels. The third starting flight is a turbo flight where players will start with the same 30,000 in chips but play 20-minute levels.
