On Thursday, the World Series of Poker continued with its steady flow of announcements regarding its 2019 events by announcing the dates for WSOP Europe. The festival returns to King’s Resort Rozvadov in the Czech Republic October 15 and runs through November 4, 2019.
The 2019 WSOP Europe schedule features 10 gold bracelet events, highlighted by the €10,000 WSOP Europe Main Event. The WSOP Europe Main Event is scheduled for October 25-30. Last year’s WSOP Europe Main Event attracted a field of 534 entries for a prize pool of €5,073,000. The UK’s Jack Sinclair bested them all to win the €1.122 million first-place prize and coveted gold bracelet.
“We love hosting WSOP Europe and treating the game’s best players with our one-of-a-kind hospitality,” King’s Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik said in the press release. “We hope players who have participated in WSOPE come back this year, and for those yet to make it out to King’s, we strongly encourage you to make plans to join us for Europe’s richest annual live poker festival.”
The 2018 WSOP Europe festival drew 6,028 entries across its 10 gold bracelet events. Those entries generated just shy of €21 million in prize money.
Although the 2019 WSOP Europe schedule of events has yet to be announced, players can likely expect a similar slate to last year’s offering, which included a €550 Colossus, €1,100 Monster Stack, and €25,500 High Roller.
