WSOP Europe Schedule Released
The World Series of Poker Europe schedule was released.Â This years WSOP-E will be held from September 17th to October 1st at the Casino of the Empire in London, England.Â As has been the case the last two years, many of the top players from Europe and around the world will come take their shot at a bracelet in fields that are a lot smaller than the fields that are at the WSOP in Las Vegas.
There are four events in at the WSOP-E.Â The first is a Â£1060 NL Holdem event that will have two starting days.Â Event #2 will be the Â£2,650 half Pot Limit Omaha and half Pot Limit Holdem event.Â Event #3 is Â£5250 Pot Limit Omaha Championship and Event 4 is the Â£10,350 NL Holdem Main Event.
Juan Juanda took this event last year after surviving the longest heads-up match in WSOP history.Â One distinct change is that this year the H.O.R.S.E. event has been eliminated from the schedule in lie of the Â½ Omaha Â½ Holdem event.Â Odds are that the European players will favor this change due to the popularity of Omaha overseas.
Thing should be interesting in September when we get to see who takes home the last 4 bracelet events leading up to the WSOP Main Event final table in November.
