World-Series-of-Poker-July-2010-dealer-tables-300x200There was plenty of tournament action to report on this past week, with tournaments taking place all over the world in the aftermath of the PokerStars PCA and the Aussie Millions. In the US the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open wrapped-up and players moved on to the WSOPC Tunica tournament series, while in Europe players headed to France and Spain for the EPT Deauville and the Estrellas Poker Tour event in Madrid.

Here is a look at those three tournaments:

WSOPC Tunica Main Event

The WSOPC Tunica Main Event had a very strong turnout, but the final number was probably one that the WSOPC tournament organizers were definitely hoping to avoid. In the end a total of 666 players registered for the tournament, creating a near-$1 million prize-pool, with over $200k set aside from the winner.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the event:

1. Ryan Stevenson – $204,795

2. Norman McKeldin – $126,723

EPT Deauville

One of the biggest events on the EPT schedule in the past few years has been the EPT Deauville. This year the tournament saw a significant decrease in attendance, but the tournament still boasted a huge field of 782 players (down from 890 in 2012) and a prize pool of over €3.7 million.

First place will pay €770,000, and a total of 120 players will make the money –Day 3 will start with 159 players still in contention.
