First ever WSOP Europe schedule unveiled

"If you build it, they will come" is a famous movie line uttered in the baseball-themed Field of Dreams in 1989. Actor Kevin Costner was walking through his cornfield in Iowa with a baseball bat in hand, dreaming of turning it into a baseball field, which he eventually did.


Entrepreneur Leon Tsoukernik has always had big dreams and aspirations, too, and what he is doing for poker in Europe is making waves on both sides of the pond. Perhaps the "Felt of Dreams" is a better way to refer to what Mr. Tsoukernik has built in Europe. After acquiring land in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, in 2002, Tsoukernik opened King's Casino Rozvadov in 2003 in the German border town to little fanfare.

But after beginning to emphasize poker a few years ago, and with grand expansion plans a couple months from completion, King's Casino has become the largest poker room in Europe thanks to Tsoukernik's persistence, passion and long-term commitment to the game. King's features 160 poker tables, provides a first-class player experience and soon plans to open a 250-room five-star hotel, which will serve as an incredible backdrop for the World Series of Poker's first battle for bracelets in the Czech Republic this fall.

As such, people are expected to come from far and wide for the first-ever World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. WSOPE features an 11-bracelet event tournament schedule and is set to run from 19 October to 10 November.

The first official gold bracelet event will begin on Thursday, 19 October at 2 p.m., with an €1,100 buy-in Monster Stack No-Limit Hold'em event with three starting flights and a €500,000 prize pool guarantee. It will be the first of 11 official WSOP gold bracelet events awarded during the tournament series that concludes officially on Friday, 10 November with the final table of the €10,300 Main Event featuring a €4,000,000 prize pool guarantee.

Speaking of guarantees, never has a poker festival featured so many, with so much in total value. For the entire WSOP festival, more than €20,000,000 in prize pool guarantees are on the table for players to win. WSOP Europe itself has €17,000,000 in prize pool guarantees, and adding in the WSOP Circuit event that will immediately precede WSOP Europe (from 28 September to 19 October) and the satellite guarantees, and this WSOP festival becomes can't miss for players as the largest, longest, richest and most ambitious poker series ever attempted in Europe.
