For the first time ever the World Series of Poker Europe is making it’s way to the Czech Republic. The 2017 WSOPE poker festival is set to take place at the King’s Casino Rozvadov from October 19 through November 10, 2017. The entire series will feature €20 million in guarantees across 84 tournaments, with 11 gold bracelet events accounting for €17 million of the guaranteed prize pools.
King’s Casino is the largest poker room in Europe, expanding quickly under the leadership of poker advocate and entrepreneur Leon Tsoukernik. The room features 160 tables and will soon be accompanied by a 250-room five-star hotel.
The festival is highlighted by the €4 million guaranteed €10,300 no-limit hold’em main event that will run from Nov. 4 – 9. The series will also host a €111,111 buy-in high roller for One Drop tournament, kicking off on Nov. 3, that will feature an impressive €10 million guarantee.
Buy-ins will range from as high as six figures to as low as €550 in the first-ever European Colossus event, which will feature starting dates on Oct. 27 – 31 and a €2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.In addition to no-limit hold’em there are also three pot-limit Omaha bracelets on offer, with one of them being for the eight-or-better variety of PLO.
“I’m so proud that that the WSOP Europe is coming to King’s,” said Tsoukernik. “I started off with a dream and my dream has come true and I hope poker players have their dreams come true too when they see the sheer size and facilities of King’s. With the awarding of WSOP gold bracelets, we have brought a huge piece of Las Vegas to Europe and we aim to deliver Vegas standards with this event too.”
“WSOP Europe has struggled to find a permanent home since debuting in 2007 because we could never really find the venue or partner to replicate what we have in Las Vegas,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “But I truly believe in Leon’s vision, his passion and King’s Casino to execute the best WSOP Europe to date. We are bullish in this becoming the European equivalent of the WSOP in Las Vegas, something we have always dreamed of doing when we first began our foray into Europe a decade ago.”
