Thursday September 12,2013 : INTERNATIONAL STADIUM POKER TOUR RETURNS – BUT WITHOUT THE STADIUM
Masquelier-Tapie brainchild is now a pretty standard live tournament
The next outing of the International Stadiums Poker Tour – now intriguingly rebranded with a Superman-like logo to ISPT Silver – has no stadium component at all, and will take place as a pretty standard live poker tournament at the Casino de Tanger in Tangier, Morocco.
InfoPowa readers will recall the much hyped but only marginally exciting final product of Prosper Masquelier and Laurent Tapie's brainstorming, which culminated in a rather downgraded affair at Wembley saved mainly by the late support of Dusk Til Dawn poker chief Robert Yong.
Under the new branding, the tournament will now dispense with online satellites and be concentrated within the premises of the Casino de Tanger, taking place between October 30 and November 3 and with a Euro 900 buy-in and a Euro 90,000 main prize.
Expressed in Moroccan Dirhams that could be – and probably will be – hyped as a millionaire tournament
So far little additional information on the affair has been released.
