Europe’s biggest poker event is just around the corner! The 2019 World Series of Poker Europe is set to take place on October 13 to November 1, promising over €22 million in guarantees, with a total of 15 gold bracelets up for grabs. The prestigious event is preceded by the WSOP Circuit, which is currently underway at King Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.
The 2019 WSOP Europe, which is expected to attract players from all over the globe, offers the final opportunity for players to capture a bracelet and earn points for the WSOP Player of the Year.
2019 WSOPE Main Event
This year’s edition of the WSOPE Main Event comes with a whopping €5 million guarantee for a buy-in of €10,350. The event will feature an interesting mix of players, partly due to a promotion sponsored by Kings over the past 12 months, which awarded more than 100 free seats to the Main Event.
The festival caters to players of all levels, with buy-ins ranging from €350 up to €250,000. The tournament was boosted even further with the addition of a €250,000 Super High Roller, two 8-Game events with buy-ins of €2,500 and €25,000, as well as a €2,500 Short Deck.
Among the prominent names in poker confirmed to take part in the tournament are poker legends Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey, alongside 15-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth.
Final Chance to Collect WSOP POY Points
Kid Poker is expected to play in several events on the schedule as he is in the running for the WSOP POY title. Negreanu occupies the third spot in the current rankings, a little over 100 points behind the defending winner Shaun Deeb. Two-time bracelet winner during the 50th WSOP in Vegas Robert Campbell still leads the rankings. Daniel Zack and $50,000 Poker Players Championship winner Phil Hui occupy the 4th and 5th spot respectively.
Points earned in the 2019 WSOPE can make a huge difference in the overall rankings. In 2017, Chris Ferguson was able to capture the WSOP POY title mainly due to his deep run and bracelet win in Rozvadov.
Hellmuth is still looking for another WSOPE Main Event title this year, after earning his first one back in 2012.
Meanwhile, Ivey will try to shift his attention from his long-standing legal battle with Borgata, to the European poker tables. Will he be able to win his eleventh bracelet? We will have to wait and see.
2019 WSOPE Full Schedule
The 2019 WSOPE will kick off with the €350 buy-in Opener No-Limit Hold’em Event on October 13, which carries a guarantee of €220,700. A similar event will take place on October 14, alongside a €550 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha. The schedule also features a €1,350 Mini Main Event, which takes place on October 16-18.
The first of the three latest additions to the schedule — the €250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold’em — will happen on October 16, offering a massive €5,000,000 in guarantees. The €2,500 and €25,500 8-Game Mix events will each take place on October 17 and October 21, guaranteeing €250,000 and €1,000,000 respectively.
There will also be a €2.5M-guaranteed Short Deck High Roller with an entry fee of €25,500 on October 18; a €100,000 buy-in, €5,000,000 GTD Diamond High Roller No-Limit Hold’em on October 23 that will surely excite high-stakes players and fans. The last 10 days of the festival will feature €550 Colossus NLHE events, each guaranteeing €1,000,000.
The original schedule of the 2019 WSOPE featured just 10 bracelet events, but WSOP Vice President Jack Effel said they believed they could still enhance the entire line-up, drawing inspiration from the recent success of the 50th WSOP in Las Vegas.
After reassessing the schedule, Effel said they were able to squeeze in some more exciting events that would result in much bigger prize pools. This in turn would give players extra chances of winning big and taking home the much-coveted bracelet. Upon announcing the newest events on the schedule, Effel thanked Leo Tsoukernik and the rest of the team at Kings for being great partners.
WSOP Circuit
Meanwhile, the WSOP Circuit is currently in full swing at Kings. The international circuit began on September 26, and will run through to October 14. There are a total of 15 events to choose from, with buy-ins of between €250 and €5,300. The winner of each event will be awarded with a WSOP Circuit gold ring.
