Get ready for the WSOPE! This year's installment of the World Series of Poker Europe got expanded to 15 events, or five more than initially scheduled. The staff added Short Deck and mixed events to the schedule for 15 total events.
"We heard the feedback and are happy to add some mixed games and some bigger buy-in tournaments in order to encourage more players to make the trip," said King's Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik. "After hosting some big events here at King's recently, players insisted to me they would come back to WSOP Europe if we added a few additional tournaments. So, we have now done so and we look forward to welcoming them with this revised WSOP Europe schedule in October."
The next version of the WSOPE will be hosted at the swanky King's Casino in RozVegas, which is along the German border approximately 45 minutes from Prague. Fifteen bracelets and a few high balla events are at stake in RozVegas starting from October 13 and running until November 4, 2019.
WSOP Europe events are as low as €350 with the opening Opener event. To think, you can buy a bracelet for as low as €350. Not too shabby, eh?
The Euro Colossus Donkament had a modest buy-in of €550 and comes with a €1 million guaranteed prize pool featuring 9 opening flights starting on October 28. Yes, that's correct and not a typo... 9 opening flights... all from Flight A to Flight I as in "I can't believe there's gonna be that many EuroDonks in the Colossus make I should buy a flight to RozVegas!"
Yes, there's two Short Deck events and one with an affordable buy-in (€2,500) for the proletariat can finally take a shot at the short deck format that has taken a foothold in the high stakes community.
If you're a baller, there's five events with buy-ins ranging from €25,500 to €250,000 including four High Rollers and the 25K Mixed Games Championship. There's a 25K Short Deck High Roller in addition to a 25K Platinum Hugh Roller.
There's also two six-figure buy-in events with the 100K Diamond High Roller and the 250K Super High Roller. By the way, the €100,000 Diamond High Roller has a €5 million guaranteed prize pool.
The Main Event is also Event #14 €10,350 Main Event Championship that has two flights starting on Saturday, Oct 25 and Saturday, Oct 26. The WSOPE Main Event has a €5 million guaranteed prize pool.
In the POY Standings, Robert Campbell currently holds onto first in WSOP Player of the Year with 3,218 points. Shaun Deeb is right behind him with 3,280 points and Kid Poker is third with 3,166. Dan Zack is fourth with 3,126.
