Just recently World Poker Tour officials have announced that they have created their first ever branded poker room in the continent of Europe. This room is in the Grand Casino Brussels Viage in Belgium and will now be used to host a number of WPT events alongside nightly cash game action.

The first such event will be the World Poker Tour National Brussels Fall Poker Series which kicks off on the 4th of December and runs until the 8th of the same month. Then next year it will host the WPT National Brussels next March and another as of yet unnamed event that will be played out in June.

During the launch ceremony world renowned poker player and WPT announcer Mike Sexton said: “It’s a great honor for the World Poker Tour to be here in Belgium”. His statement was followed by one from the Operations Manager at the casino who stated: “I feel the WPT branding will raise the profile of poker within the casino and Belgium. The synergy between WPT and our business is only growing. Securing this partnership with WPT aligns with our strategy for Grand Casino Brussels to become the poker hub of Europe.”

The card room will be offering regulars to the casino the ability to be able to play cash poker at standard tables, or even at special Private VIP rooms for those that want to play at much higher stakes.

There are many World Poker Tour themed card rooms in America but this will be the first to be established in the continually growing poker community that is Europe.

The casino is hoping that it will be successful enough to even attract a WPT Main Event at some point in the future though they are happy enough for now to concentrate on the immediate future.
