It took three starting flights and a near 11-hour Day 2 to whittle the 295-entry field of the 2023 Marrakech Poker Open 15,000 MAD Main Event down to its final ten hopefuls. Each of them has already locked up 68,000 MAD (€6,200) but the main prize awarded at the end of the night is the 770,000 MAD first place prize ( €70,200) and the rights to take the trophy home.
Casino de Marrakech, located in the stunning Es Saadi Resort in the vibrant Moroccan city of Marrakech, will once again deliver a breathtaking final table stage for the finalists to contest for the lion's share of the 3,849,500 MAD prize pool and the six-figure first place prize. Leading the way is French Adrien Sanz, who will start the day with 2,080,000 in chips.
