APO 2500, the back-to-school event

2 months ago

In partnership with PMU Poker, Texapoker is pleased to announce the return of the APO 2500 from September 13th to 26th at Club Montmartre in Paris.

The creator of the APO 2500, Apo Chantzis, immediately found partners to develop his own festival several years ago. The Texapoker franchise owner has always wanted to create a 100% French festival with its own structures, worthy of a major European event, whether it be a €500 or €2,500 buy-in, accessible to all pockets. "The structures are very deep, since in the first two editions of the APO 2500, the average was between 80 and 100 blinds with 4 tables left, explains Apo. The first paid seat already corresponds to a substantial prize of more than 5,000 euros."

After La Grande-Motte in September 2017 and Divonne in October 2018, the goal was to organise the APO 2500 in Paris and find a partner. "Since the reopening of the clubs in Paris, we have signed a partnership with the Club Montmartre headed by Texapoker's former partner at the Casino de Gujan-Mestras."

As an exclusive partner of the Texapoker Series, PMU.fr has also bet on Texapoker's flagship festival since its first edition. For the tournament management, Apo has surrounded itself with one of the best TDs in Europe in the person of Thomas Gimie since the second year of the APO 2500. On a day-to-day basis, it has recruited competent people, each in his or her own field, creating the positions of production manager for François Lascourrèges for more than 6 years, human resources manager for Maïlys Garcia, customer and digital development manager for Nicolas Pinna and finally communication and media relations manager for Florence Mazet.

The All Poker Open 2500 by PMU.fr is back with a new destination but an unchanged €2,500 buy-in Main Event. The event will take place from September 13 to 26 at Club Montmartre in Paris.

On the programme is the famous €2,500 Main Event with Days 1A and 1B on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 September and a Day 2 on Friday 24 September. While late entries will be possible until the end of the eleventh level on Day 2, paid seats will be reached at the end of the second day before a Day 3 on Saturday 25 September. Expect an exceptional deep structure with 50,000 starting chips and 60 minute levels on Day 1 and then 75 minutes.

The shot clock (see our article on the subject) will also be in play and Day 4 will be available to watch live with commentary (delayed with cards revealed) on the Twitch PMU TV channel, as will Day 2 of the High Roller on Sunday 26 September. The shot clock will also be in play on Day 2 of the High Roller, APO 1000, Classic 500 and Omaha 750.

Opening the event is an Omaha 750 on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 September, followed by a Classic 500 from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 September. Just before the Main Event, players will be able to test themselves in the APO 1000 from Monday 20 to Wednesday 22 September before the €3,000 High Roller on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September.

From Tuesday 14 September, €400 live satellites for the Main Event will be held on site with a chip target to reach to win the ticket (20,000 starting chips, 20 minute levels). Several online Super satellites on PMU.fr will take place at the beginning of September (details and dates to come) as well as sub-qualifiers to qualify at a lower cost. Finally, the Club Montmartre will host four €300 live satellites on August 30, September 1, 6 and 8 at 8pm (20,000 chips, 20 minutes).
