2017 WSOP Europe to Feature 11 Bracelet Events

The WSOP Europe (WSOPE) has now announced its full schedule for the series to be held at the King’s Casino Rozvadov in the Czech Republic from October 19th to November 10th. In total, the 2017 WSOPE will feature 11 gold bracelet events, with €20 million ($21.16m) in prizes already guaranteed.
The European iteration of the WSOP took place in England from 2007 to 2010, before moving onto France (2011-2013), and then Germany in 2015. This is the first Series to take place in the Central European country of the Czech Republic, though, and the casino has already been named as the host for the 2019 WSOPE, as well.
The WSOP is obviously delighted with its choice of venues, too, as the owner Leon Tsoukernik, is a keen poker player himself, who in December of last year took down the EPT Prague €50,000 Super High Roller for €741,100 ($782,453). The King’s Casino Rozvadov also features 160 tables, making it the biggest cardroom in the whole of the EU, with the venue’s organizers having placed an emphasis on offering poker games in recent years. Commenting on the WSOP Europe’s home for the next two series, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart, said:
“WSOP Europe has struggled to find a permanent home since debuting in 2007 because we could never really find the venue or partner to replicate what we have in Las Vegas. But I truly believe in Leon’s vision, his passion and King’s Casino to execute the best WSOP Europe to date.”
On October 19th, the 2017 WSOPE will kick-off with the €1,100 buy-in Monster Stack NLHE event, which has a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool, before eventually culminating on November 10th with its €10,300 Main Event , complete with a €4 million prize pool guarantee. The Series will also include a number of popular events with buy-ins ranging from the €550 Colossus No-Limit Hold’em event to the €111,111 High Roller for One Drop. Expressing his excitement over the 2017 WSOPE, King’s Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik, stated:
“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.”
