Poker in Paris? The WPT Season 5 will air their first episode tonight on the Travel Channel. This is an important episode because the WPT will be moving to the GSN so it's the last season to be aired on the Travel Channel. Plus, this might be the last stop ever for the WPT in Paris at the Aviation Club since French authorities cock-blocked the WPT for Seaon 6. The suits at the WPT added Barcelona to their schedule instead.
My buddy Thomas Wahlroos made the final table in Paris along with Jani Sointula, who is also from Finland. Should be a good episode.

And as Wicked Chops predicted, Sabina Gadecki will not be returning to Season 6 as hostess of the WPT. Better get your Sabina fix while you can.
