My friends, my colleagues, my partners,
I would so much like to be able to finally announce an official date for our return to work. A date that would allow us to fix a moment in time, a moment when we could finally meet again.
It's been more than 15 years since i started Texapoker and i can tell you that if someone had warned me about this pandemic, I wouldn't have changed a thing. I love this business and the people in it more than anything. The players, the dealers, the managers or the partners have given me the desire, the strength and the motivation to get up every morning and meet you in our tournament rooms.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have dedicated the last two decades of my life to finding ways to make our game, poker, a pure pleasure. Going on holiday was not an option, taking time for myself was not an end in itself. Only the need to see many of you at our festivals was the sign of a successful project.
For the past year, my teams and I have been doing everything we can with one goal in mind: to welcome you back under the best possible conditions. Locked in with our ideas, we look forward to presenting them to you. We miss the dealers and floors from our platform. That magical ballet that takes shape at "shuffle up and deal" is a void that needs to be filled very quickly. We have never been so ready to meet you again. This pandemic will at least have allowed us to take a step back and bounce back better.
I can't wait for the opera to resume, for the doors of our pleasures to open again. Let the sound of "Out Table 12" be heard in the distance and let everyone's smiles fill the stage with joy. I would like to thank all the players who have been loyal to our tournaments for all these years; my team (François, Maïlys, Nicolas, Alex and Benjamin) who support me and accompany me on a daily basis; the floors and dealers who have trodden the Texapoker tables and who are suffering while waiting for the reopening and, of course, my partners, casinos and friends who believed in me when I was a small company and who helped me to grow up.
Thank you all and see you soon,
