Winamax Poker Open Heads to Madrid From May 5; PokerNews to Live Report

Casino Gran Madrid

The Winamax Poker Open (WPO) tour is setting sail from Madrid and bringing a bustling schedule of six-max tournaments to the Casino Gran Madrid Torrelodones from May 5-15. Dozens of events adorn the schedule, with the €500 buy-in Main Event being the show-piece event.

PokerNews’ Live Reporting team is joining the Winamax Poker Open in time for the eagerly anticipated Main Event that takes place between May 11-15. The Main Event features four starting flights and our reporters will be with you every step of the way, from the moment the first cards are pitched on Day 1A until the last player standing is announced as the WPO Madrid champion. You can follow English updates on PokerNews.com or French updates on our French-language site.

This is the first live Winamax Poker Open since September 2019 when it stopped off in Dublin, Ireland. A record crowd of 1,389 players bought in on that occasion and Philippe Guillou outlasted them all, turning his €500 investment into €70,000 after a four-way del with a trio of other Frenchman.

The festival begins with the €150 buy-in Colossus KO, which has five starting flights, so expect a bumper crowd and some massive prizes.

Other highlights include the €750 Battle Royale KO, the €1,000 High Roller, and of course the €500 Main Event.

Don’t worry if the various tournaments do not go to plan because the Casino Gran Madrid Torrelodones has a dedicated cash game room that accommodates up to 14 tables, if you fancy a change of pace. No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha cash games with stakes of €1/€2 to €50/€100 will run throughout WPO Madrid.

There will be plenty of off the felt activities for players to enjoy. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of experiencing a Winamax Poker Open or a SISMIX event run by Winamax knows the French online poker operator knows how to entertain. Expect memorable parties and entertainment throughout the festival.
