FPS Season 4 closes in record-breaking fashion
The France Poker Series (FPS) cemented its position as France’s premier live poker tour in 2014 and early 2015, as Season 4 once again brought an unforgettable live poker experience to all corners of the country. There were great moments at each stop, but the season saved its biggest shocks for the curtain-closer in Deauville, where 1,355 players came together to battle for more than €1,300,800 in prize money. Both the field size and the prize pool smashed FPS records, making Anthony Appicella’s victory one that will linger long in the tour’s memory.
In total more than €3.5M was awarded over the course of Season 4, with “I like dolla” (FPS Online, €166,155) and two-time winner Yury Nesterenko (Monaco, €150,000, and SunFest Cannes, €91,000) joining Appicella in the winners’ circle.
