This year's World Series of Poker Europe will run from October 11th to November 2nd and will feature a total of 10 bracelet events.

Last year's World Series of Poker Europe proved to be very successful, with a total of 7,689 entrants and over 25 million EUR in prize money. King's Casino Rozvadov is situated in the Czech Republic, close to the German border, which makes it easily accessible to many European players. In addition, the WSOP POY race, which usually generates millions of dollars worth of side bets, helps to attract many of the game's top players, as the WSOPE counts towards the Player of the Race leaderboard.

The press release from the WSOP earlier today notes that the renovations at King's Casino Rozvadov are now complete, with the resort now featuring a hotel and over 200 poker tables.


Tournament organizers are still finalizing the schedule for the 2018 WSOP Europe, though you can safely assume that the high profile events, such as the €25,000 High Roller, €111,111 High Roller for One Drop, €25,000 Super High Roller and €10,000 main event, will all be returning.


Here is what King's Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik had to say about the announcement:

"Now that King's Casino is firmly established as Europe's most popular poker venue, we have doubled down and have made a bigger commitment to bring WSOP Europe to Rozvadov annually."

And WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart:

"We have long searched for a great venue and host for WSOP Europe and we believe we've finally found it. King's Casino has been a terrific host and with their expansion complete, we're pleased to commit to holding WSOP Europe annually each October in Rozvadov."


If you attended the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe and enjoyed it, you will be pleased to note that the tournament series will now be held there on an ongoing basis.
