Two years after leaving London for Cannes, Seth Palansky, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Caesars Interactive Entertainment Inc., announced that the World Series of Poker Europe is once again on the move, this time right outside of Paris, France.

The WSOPE will remain in France and will also remain partners with the Barrière Poker group - moving the Series to le Casino Barrière in Enghien-les-Bains, a Northern suburb of Paris.

The World Series of Poker Europe was hosted by the city of London, England for the first four years; from 2007 and 2010. The WSOPE then moved to the Hotel Majestic Le Croisette Casino Barrière in Cannes, France for its 2011 and 2011 tournaments.

It is expected that seven bracelet will be up for grabs including the €10,000 Main Event. A High Rollers event is once again scheduled for 2013.

One interesting note is that the 2013 edition of the WSOPE is scheduled to take place three weeks later than it did this past season. The 2012 event ended just as EPT Sanremo started ... if the EPT are to keep Sanremo in the same place on the poker calendar, the WSOPE would be presented as EPT Sanremo would be concluding, switching the WSOPE from before to after the presentation of EPT Sanremo.
