In March 2012, World Poker Tour hosted its inaugural tournament in the Indian Ocean with PMU.fr WPT National Mauritius setting the record of the biggest field for a poker tournament ever organized in that region with 290 runners. In 2013 ‘Poker in Paradise’ in the form of PMU.fr WPT National Mauritius is back with many more surprises and add-ons to its second edition.
This year’s schedule offers a festival of 16 tournaments, including a €1,500 (re-entry) Main Event running March 5-10 presented by PMU.fr. The full event schedule with action getting underway on March 3 can be found here: WPT National Mauritius.
