2019 WSOP Europe Reveals Final Fall Schedule
With the World Series of Poker little more than one month from its kickoff in Las Vegas for the summer, WSOP executives took this opportunity to release the final schedule of the WSOP Europe.
The European set of tournaments isn’t set to begin until the middle of October, but players who find success at the summer WSOP events are likely to eye a trip to the WSOP Europe in the fall. And there is no better advertisement for the Czech Republic series than to promote it to players who are already fans of the brand.
Back in February, the World Series of Poker planners let the public know that the WSOP Europe would begin on October 15 and run through November 4, 2019. And King’s Casino in the Czech Republic would again host the action of live poker tournaments and cash games.
Now, the full schedule is available with €14 million in prize pool guarantees.

Returning to Rozvadov
King’s Resort will host more than a month of WSOP events, so players should know how to get there.
The casino/resort is in the Czech Republic but near the German border, which means airports in Munich, Nuremberg, or Prague are all solid options. Scheduled shuttle services are available from any of those airports to King’s. The closest train stations to King’s are in Nuremberg, Weiden, Wernberg, Regensburg, and Amberg, and shuttle services can be arranged from those stations to King’s as well.
