During the BPC Namur Poker festival you can get to know Team Days of Poker. The full team will play the € 440 8-6Max Championship. With players like Wim Verhaegen and Jorden Verbraeken there’s always a possibility that one of them will make it to the final table of the Main Event.

History Belgian Poker Challenge
In 2011 the Belgian Poker Challenge was organised for the first time. Ever since then it’s a poker festival with 2 stops yearly: one in the Casino of Spa, one in the Casino of Namur. In May of each year the BPC has its stop in Spa, in November Namur is the poker place to be. The BPC festival always lasts about 10 days, that’s 10 days of pure poker fun. The history of the Belgian Poker Challenge is not that elaborate, but we are sure that you know a lot of the players that have already reached itm places in the BPC tournaments.
Arne Coulier won the BPC Main Event in Namur in 2014. For this awesome performance Coulier took home € 113.820. In 2015, Arne Coulier did it again. There were 680 entries for the BPC Main Event in November 2015 and Coulier took the title again. This time, he won over € 100.000. Team Days of Poker ambassador Wim Verhaegen also does well during the BPC series. His name regularly appears in the Hendon Mob lines of the poker festivals. We are curious to see how he will do this year! Bart Lybaert, Jonathan Abdellatif, Davidi Kitai and Christophe De Meulder will also definitely ring a bell.
