2017 WSOPE Kicks Off Next Week at the King’s Casino

2017 WSOPE Kick Off Next Week at the King’s Casino One week from today, the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe will kick-off at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic with the series subsequently concluding with its Main Event on November 10th. In addition to 11 events, there will also be an impressive guaranteed prize pool of €18 million featured at the series now into its 9th iteration.

In a departure from past events which were held in England, France and Germany, this is the first time the prestigious WSOPE series will be visiting the Central European country of the Czech Republic. Unlike the big cities it has visited before, Rozvadov, located near the German border, is a small town, although the King’s Casino has a big reputation as housing the continent’s largest poker room with more than 160 poker tables in its seating area. As casino owner Leon Tsoukernik commented after his venue was picked to host the 2017 WSOP Europe:

“I started off with a dream and my dream has come true and I hope poker players have their dreams come true too when they see the sheer size and facilities of King’s. With the awarding of WSOP gold bracelets, we have brought a huge piece of Las Vegas to Europe and we aim to deliver Vegas standards with this event too.”
The tournaments featured at this years WSOP Europe are as follows:

1: €1,100 Monster Stack No-Limit Hold’em
2: €550 Pot Limit Omaha 8-Max
3: €1,100 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold’em
