2015 WSOP Europe Underway In Berlin

2015 WSOP Europe Underway In BerlinThe 2015 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) kicked off in Berlin yesterday, and will run until October 24th during which time 10 gold bracelets will be up for grabs. Currently underway is the €2,200 six-max no-limit hold’em event, and the €550 “The Oktoberfest” No-Limit Hold’em, with other notable bracelet events to look out for including the €1,650 ‘monster stack’ on the 12th, and the €25,600 high roller on the 21st.
Of course, all fans will eagerly be awaiting the start of the WSOP Europe’s marquee tournament, the €10,450 Main Event, which is not scheduled to get underway until October 18th. The event’s first winner was Norway’s Annette Obrestad in 2007, and since then there has been crowned a total of seven champions, including John Juanda (2008), Barry Shulman (2009), James Bord (2010), Elio Fox (2011), Phil Hellmuth (2012), and Adrián Mateos (2013).
Playing host to this year’s series is the Spielbank Berlin Casino located at Potsdamer Platz, which opened in the year 2000 complete with three different floors offering gambling entertainment. Commenting on the venue, as well as Germany hosting the WSOPE for the very first time, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said:
“Berlin became a logical choice city for WSOP Europe given its proximity to all of Europe, the experienced management team at Spielbank, and the gap of time since a major poker tournament has come to the city. We believe this truly will be the best organized and contested WSOP Europe ever.”
Another first is that the WSOPE will be available for viewing via Twitch.tv starting October 10th, with other viewing options including ESPN in the USA, and Sport1 in Germany.
