2013 WSOPE To Feature a Total of Eight Bracelet EventsPublished on August 1st, 2013 10:46 pm EST
Earlier today, the World Series of Poker revealed that an eighth bracelet event has been added to the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe schedule.
The new bracelet event will be a two day EUR 1,000 + EUR 100 Ladies No Limit Hold'em tournament. The event, which will get underway on Friday, October 11th, will kick off this year's WSOPE.
The decision to add the event was an easy one, especially after 954 women turned out to play in the 2013 World Series of Poker Ladies NLHE event.
WSOP Executive Ty Stewart had this to say about adding the new Ladies bracelet event to the 2013 WSOPE schedule:
"We first offered a Ladies event at the Vegas WSOP in 1977, and felt it was the right time to add this tradition to WSOPE. We need to do more to promote ladies involvement with the game, and with the many breakout stars in the region, it feels like a women’s European championship is long overdue."
This year's World Series of Poker Europe will run from October 11-25 and will be held in Casino Barriere d'Enghien-les-Bains in Paris, France.
