In addition to the great tournaments on offer, WPT Executive Tour Director Matt Savage will be on site at Holland Casino to host a special player forum on April 17. The forum begins at 12 p.m., just before the start of Day 1b of the WPT Amsterdam Main Event. Players will have the opportunity to give their feedback on the World Poker Tour, address any concerns they may have, or make suggestions to the tour. This is an open forum, but the WPT does ask that players reserve a seat by contacting Maxime Rouison at [email protected].
The last time the World Poker Tour was in Amsterdam, Daniel Daniyar was victorious in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event for a first-place prize of €152,600 after he topped a field of 224 entries.
In last year’s WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam Main Event, Thijs Menco defeated a field of 243 entries to win the €73,239 first-place prize.
