It is October, so you might think it is a strange time to talk about the World Series of Poker, but lest you forget, the WSOP Europe is now upon us, beginning Tuesday, October 9th. This year’s WSOP Europe will run about three weeks and feature ten events and €13 million in guaranteed prize pools.
Aside from the time of year, you might also have been forgetting about WSOP Europe because of the year itself. In 2015, the World Series of Poker decided that WSOP Europe and WSOP Asia Pacific (APAC) would alternate years, WSOP Europe taking place in odd years and WSOP APAC being held in even-numbered years. WSOP APAC, though, was canceled in 2016 and seems like it may be gone for good, so WSOP Europe has now become an annual event again.
Once again, WSOP Europe will be hosted by King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, right at the German border. As the WSOP calls King’s Casino a “permanent home,” it looks like that’s where it will be ongoing.
“It was a dream to host WSOP Europe and I can’t wait to do it again,” said King’s Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik in a press release in June. “We hope everyone who came last year comes back for our warm hospitality and generous offerings, and for those who missed out, please join us for Europe’s biggest poker event of the year.”
Most of the events will be No-Limit Hold’em; there are two Pot-Limit Omaha events and one Mixed Pot-Limit Omaha/No-Limit Hold’em tournament. There are two clear highlights of WSOP Europe, bookending the festival. The opener is the €550 Colossus, which has eight starting flights, while WSOP Europe closes with the €10,350 Main Event, which comes with a €5 million guarantee.
All of the events are official gold bracelet events and count toward the 2018 World Series of Poker Player of the Year standings. Shaun Deeb currently leads said rankings with 4,334.06 points, followed by Ben Yu with 3,746.04.
