Congratulations to all FPS Season 2 Winners!

Season 2 of the France Poker Series (FPS) has now wrapped after eight incredible events. The tour visited some of France’s most exciting poker destinations, including two stops at the stunning luxury resort of Mazagan in Morocco. The tour finished in style with a Final event, held right before the European Poker Tour (EPT) stop in Deauville. The big winner was Patrick Braga, who claimed the title and €165,000 in first place prize money.

The opening event of FPS 2 took place in Mazagan where Anas Tadini took down the title and €80,463. Next up PokerStars qualifier Veronika Pavlikova won in Evian, before Benjamin Dobson scooped €70,000 in Amneville. Then the series visited Gujan Mestras for the first time, where Florian Desgouttes collected €43,000 for top spot.

North Africa then hosted for the second time in Season 2, and Morocco’s Karim El Rharbaoui took it down, winning MAD 505,000. For the next event a huge field of 715 players turned out in Paris, creating a total prize pool of €709,738. PokerStars qualifier Mateusz Rypulak was victorious, beating Sofiane Tigrine in the heads-up finale to take home €150,000.
