2017 WSOP Europe Heads To Czech Republic

After its inception, the World Series of Poker Europe spent four years in England (2007-2010), and three years in France (2011-2013), before becoming an annually rotating series with WSOP APAC and moving onto Germany in 2015. Now the World Series of Poker Europe has announced the location for its tournament festival in 2017 and 2019 as none other than the Czech Republic in Central Europe.
More specifically, the WSOP Europe will be hosted in the west of the country near to the German border, with the King’s Casino Rozvadov given the honor of organizing the series. The venue already has one of Europe’s biggest poker rooms with more than 150 tables, but the casino’s size and facilities are set to expand further in the coming months as the Rozvadov continues with its major expansion project.
The casino is owned by businessman and art collector Leon Tsoukernik, and commenting on the venue’s latest partnership deal, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart explained:
“I have really bought into Leon’s vision for creating a poker-first destination in Central Europe. The existing setup already reminds me of the Amazon Room at the Rio and it’s only going to get bigger. When the new hotel and the renovations are complete, and considering the way Leon and staff cater to poker players, this is going to be a very comfortable environment for a large festival such as ours.”
In fact, Ty Stewart appears so impressed by the King’s Casino Rozvadov that he even expressed his belief that the WSOP Europe organization may just have found a long-term home for the organization to replicate the scale of popularity that the WSOP enjoys stateside in Las Vegas.
According to early details of the intriguing development, Caesar’s Entertainment, which owns the WSOP brand, said that the 2017 and 2019 WSOP Europe will take place at the King’s Casino Rozvadov in the winter-time, with at least 10 WSOP gold bracelet on offer. The venue will also host two WSOP Circuit events each year in 2018 and 2020 (Winter, Spring), as well as one WSOP Circuit event in the Spring of 2017, 2019 and 2021. The 2017 WSOP Europe’s final schedule, however, will be released as soon as all the finer details have been worked out.
