The 2017 European version of the World Series of Poker will have Euro 18 million in guaranteed prize pools and be hosted by Kings Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, according to a statement this week by WSOPE Director Gregory Chochon.
The statement details a diverse series of events and buy-ins, which Chochon says should attract more players and break previous European records.
“With Euro 18 million in guarantees, we expect to see the largest fields and prize pools for our European offshoot,” he said this week, adding that attractions include 14 days of free live streamed coverage, real-time media reportage, over 160 poker tables and 11 WSOP gold winner’s bracelets up for grabs.
WSOPE kicks off on October 19 with a Euro 1,100 buy-in Monster Stack NLHE event and runs through to November 10.
The full schedule is available on the WSOPE website.
