If you’re a high roller or like mixed game poker, the World Series of Poker Europe schedule got a more interesting earlier this week.
The WSOPE has added four additional events to their schedule, which now includes 15 WSOP bracelet tournaments.
This year’s WSOPE returns to the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic from October 13 to November 4. The 15 WSOP bracelets is a new record for the event, which will have a guaranteed prize pool of more than €22 million across the 15 events.
The first of the four new events is a €250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold’em tournament on October 16. The largest buy-in at this year’s WSOPE will have a €5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. That’s just over $5.5 million US.
The next two new events are both mixed games events, the first at the WSOPE. First up on October 17 is a €2,500 8-Game Mixed tournament. It’s includes the usual variations of Hold’em, Omaha, Seven Card Stud, Razz and Triple Draw, and will have a €250,000 guarantee.
The other new mixed game tournament is the €25,500 Mixed Game Championship on October 21. This tournament will also feature the usual variations of Hold’em, Omaha, Sven Card Stud, Razz and Triple Draw. The guaranteed prize pool in the more expensive mixed tournament is €1,000,000.
The final addition to the WSOPE schedule was a second Short Deck tournament. The €2,500 Short Deck No-Limit Hold’em tournament will begin on October 24. That’s just under a week after the other Short Deck tournament on the schedule, the €25,500 Short Deck tournament. The cheaper tournament will have a €250,000 guarantee.
The €10,350 main event at the WSOPE will still begin on October 25 with two starting flights on the 25th and 26th. The main event is scheduled to run for a week with a €5,000,000 guarantee. Last year’s main event winner was Britain’s Jack Sinclair. He outlasted a 534-player field to cash €1,22,239.
