Naturist Poker Tournament to Take Place in Cap d'Agde

One of the most renowned naturist resorts, Cap d'Agde (Hérault, France), is to celebrate its 40th anniversary – by organising a poker tournament, as a result of the cooperation between the local casino and the Union of Professionals of Naturist Tourism.

The Paddy Power World Strip Poker Championship in 2006. This is what
you're probably NOT going to see in Cap d'Agde.

Although no exact date, event structure or buy-in information is yet available, the entrance fee is announced to be €150 (and, of course, you’ve got to lose your pants). The main purposes, according to, are to popularise nudism and “reach a wider audience” with the association. Cap d'Agde, hosting about 40,000 people summertime according to The Cake Blog, provides visitors with everything a usual resort does, except here all these can be enjoyed naked.

Unfortunately, I must agree with most of my sources: on poker games like this, you can expect 0.5-1% of the participants to be women, at best.
