WSOP Europe Approaches with Ten Tournaments

WSOP Europe Approaches with Ten Tournaments

The World Series of Poker finished its summer series more than two months ago, but the year is not over for poker players seeking gold WSOP bracelets. The WSOP Europe is set to kick off next week in Rozvadov, a small village in the Czech Republic near the border with Germany.

Rozvadov is the home of King’s Casino, which is currently in the midst of hosting the WSOP Circuit with 14 tournaments that will end its run on October 8. One day later, the WSOP Europe events kick off and run through November 5.

With a large poker room full of more than 160 tables and plenty of cash game action at this time of year, poker players are already lining up for the games of their choice.

Four Weeks, Ten Events

The WSOP Europe announced its return to Rozvadov earlier this year, and the schedule shows a total of ten bracelet events over the course of nearly four weeks. The tournaments are not as tightly-packed as during the summer months in Las Vegas, giving players more time to play daily tournaments and cash games or explore the region.

The ten events offer guarantees tallying €13 million, but the grand total to be awarded over the course of the series is likely to top that number. Last year’s WSOP Europe series saw players taking home more than €25 million.

Event 1 will start at 6pm on the evening of Tuesday, October 9, and the full schedule is as follows:

–October 9:  €550 NLHE Colossus Day 1A (one reentry per flight) with €1 million GTD
