WSOP Europe Adds €25,500 Short Deck Bracelet Event to its Schedule
Not ten, but eleven of the most prestigious poker trophies will be distributed this fall during the WSOP Europe at the King's Resort.
In addition to the original ten planned bracelet events and a total of € 14 million in guarantees, a High Roller with a €25,500 entry fee and a €2,500,000 guaranteed prize pool will be added. The format will be the more and more popular Short Deck with a stripped deck.
Winning the golden WSOP bracelet is the dream of any poker enthusiast and professional, and in the Czech Republic, only five players can boast of having the most prestigious poker trophy. King's Resort is the only place in Europe where this sought after poker jewelry can be obtained for the third consecutive year.
Tsoukernik: "It's the biggest bracelet event in this format in the history of Europe, and we are honored to host it at King’s."
This autumn, the European edition of the world's oldest and most prestigious poker event, the World Series of Poker Europe, returns to West Bohemia for the third time in a row, and the organizers released its program last week. But the original ten planned bracelet tournaments and a total guarantee of over € 14 million are now expanding by one more specialty.
At WSOP Europe, a Short Deck Hold'em tournament takes place for the first time at King's Resort, a reasonably young poker discipline where all of the deuces to fives are removed (therefore, sometimes referred to as Six Plus Hold'em).
Especially the players of the most expensive tournaments favored this format for its action potential, and the 18th and 19th of October, the WSOPE Short Deck High Roller will offer a €25,500 entry fee and a €2,500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
“It's the biggest bracelet event in this format in the history of Europe, and we are honored to host it at King’s. It will be an event for fans of modern fast poker with huge guarantees. Our resort confirms its role as a key poker destination in 2019,” comments the owner of King’s Resort, Leon Tsoukernik.
Originally played primarily in East Asia, the format has spread throughout the world over the past few years and has penetrated, for the first time this year, into the relatively conservative World Series of Poker. At the beginning of June, the $10,000 Short Deck Event will take place at the 50th annual WSOP in Las Vegas. The play for the next and the first European gold bracelet in this discipline will take place four months later in West Bohemia.
