 Poker News February 11, 2019 by  Gabrielle Monet

The 2019 edition of the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) will once again be returning to King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.

This is one of the biggest poker festivals for EU poker pros and they can now mark their calendars as the WSOP has released initial details of its stop.

A total of ten gold bracelets are up for grabs at the tournament which will run from October 15 to November 4, with the €10,000 buy-in WSOPE Main Event taking place on October 25 – 30.

Hosting the WSOPE for the third year in a row, King’s Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik hopes to continue to attract both old and new customers. The venue boasts of excellent amenities, 24/7 cash games, and unlimited tournament action. Tsoukernik said they are looking forward to once again showcasing their unique hospitality to every player taking part in the biggest annual live poker festival in Europe.

Last year, a total of 6,028 players battled it out for 10 WSOPE gold bracelets, with prize pools totalling €20,997,184. The Main Event was won by Jack Sinclair who topped a field of 534 entries to claim his first gold bracelet and the first-place prize of €1,122,239.

Bigger and Better 2019 Edition

WSOP Europe has grown so much since it started in 2007, with participation figures increasing each year. For 2019, the festival is again poised for a huge turnout. WSOP Director Gregory Chochon said the entire team expects the upcoming edition to draw massive numbers and once again reach record-breaking prize pools. Chochon said King Casino’s perfect location has made it convenient for European players to travel to the festival and join the action.

The WSOPE reached a multi-year deal with King’s Casino in 2016 and was happy to return in 2018, given the response and the success of the tournament. King’s Casino is reported to have the biggest poker room in Europe and has built a reputation for hosting some of the biggest and most popular poker festivals in the Europe.

A lot of poker players in the EU are unable to make it down to the WSOP festival that takes place each year in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their best option at winning a gold bracelet and establishing a name for themselves on the EU circuit is by showing up to the WSOPE and putting in a good performance.

The full schedule of the 2019 WSOPE tournament will be announced soon.
