PokerStars Unveils the Complete France Poker Series Schedule for 2023Published March 6, 2023 by Florin P
PokerStars has announced the complete schedule of the France Poker Series (FPS), starting in late April and concluding in mid-November.
The two pandemic years brought the poker world to a screeching halt, at least when it came to land-based tournaments. PokerStars kept the dream alive, in anticipation of the fateful day when classic tournaments could be hosted. 2023 is business as usual and as the poker calendar gets underway, the leading poker network has an announcement to make. The France Poker Series (FPS) returns in force with an action-packed schedule that takes players to amazing locations nationwide.

Monte Carlo is the preferred gaming destination in France, so it was only natural for it to be the first stop on the 2023 poker calendar. After the late April event in Monaco, Namus is next in line with 10 days of poker action in mid-May. The nation’s capital is the gracious host of a poker tournament in July and after two months of vacation, the action returns to Aix les Bains. The FPS concludes with the Aix en Provence, as you can see from the detailed calendar below:
- Monte Carlo - Sporting Monte Carlo / April 26 – April 30
- Namur - Circus Casino Resort Namur / May 12 – May 21
- Paris - Stade Jean Bouin / July 15 – July 23
- Aix les Bains - Casino Grand Cercle
- Aix-les-Bains / September 29 – October 8
- Aix en Provence - Pasino Grand / November 10 – November 19
Poker Action Spills Beyond Borders
PokerStars welcomes players from all over the world and it is the preferred destination for fans of the game regardless of their country of residence. In 2023, it shows its commitment to international events, by sponsoring the Belgian Poker Challenge. On this occasion, it will award a €1M GTD across all events and the highlight of the tour is the main event with a guaranteed prize pool of €750,000.
Highrollers have plenty to look forward to in the €100,000 event, as poker fans converge to the nation’s capital for the FPS Paris. Those interested in signing up for any of these tournaments will need to pay the main event €1100 buy-in. Highrollers are expected to buy in for twice as much, but given their status and resources, this shouldn’t be a problem.
PokerStars is famous for providing players with alternative paths toward the tournaments, assuming they can’t pay the buy-in. Qualification is possible through online satellites, and these events will start a few weeks before the tournament. Those who participate can expect to win a buy-in for the main event or a complete package that includes the participation fee and expenses, worth €1500.
