Update: Partouche to Honor Euro 5 Million Prize Pool

After announcing that this edition of the Partouche Poker Tour will be the last one, due to the scandal around the prize pool guarantee, Patrick Partouche made another announcement – that the company will honour the original Euro 5 Million Guarantee.

He added that he stays with the position that there was “no guarantee” but that there had been confusion and “erroneous information” in the external media that had mistakenly given the wrong impression.

It was also heard that the tour marketing director JJ Ichai will remain with the company even though he had submitted his resignation over the debacle, and in regard to this, Partouche commented that “he has never turned his back on his troops and that anyone who doesn&t make mistakes isn&t trying hard enough.”

In the end, players will be happy to hear that the group will be covering the Euro 730 000 overlay, but they&ll probably remain disappointed with the fact that a lot of strong wording in this case has driven the organizers to give up on the rewarding tourney altogether.
