€8,500 Cannes Main Event

Congratulations to Alain Roy - 2008 Partouche Poker Tour Champion ($1,426,645)

Alain Roy
Four days ago we started with 480 players and at a little after 3.30 am local time we have finally reduced that number to just one.

Alain Roy is the last man standing, taking home the title and the money in the first annual Partouche Poker Tour Main Event. Some of the days' play were long, some were extremely long but that all is a direct consequence of the the deep stack and great structure on offer.

As with any tournament in its first year there were teething problems along the way but we expect to be back next year to witness and even bigger, better and more successful event.

We appreciate you following our coverage and hope to see you back again next year from the sunny south of France. Until then good night from The Palm Beach Casino, Cannes.
