FIDPA Endorses World Poker Congress

1 October 2008

The Federation Internationale de Poker Association, or FIDPA, has announced its endorsement of Clarion Gaming’s 2008 World Poker Congress, taking place in Budapest Oct. 29-30.

Bridging the gap between land-based and online operators, the conference is in its third year and with FIDPA’s endorsement will bring professional poker players Marcel Luske, better known as The Flying Dutchman, and Michelle Lau. They will be speaking on behalf of FIDPA about the importance of the international poker rules.

“The WPC is a perfect example of FIDPA's mission to promote poker on a global level by uniting the queens, kings and jacks of the poker world,” Ms. Lau said in a prepared statement.
