The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is the most popular poker tournament in the world and the 2015 WSOP is scheduled to start towards the end of May at the Rio in Las Vegas. The WSOP recently announced its schedule for the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe and confirmed that it will feature as many as 10 bracelet events. The WSOP bracelet is one of the most coveted items on the poker circuit and is treasured by every winner.
The 2015 World Series of Poker Europe is scheduled to take place between the 8th- 24th of October at the Spielbank Berlin in Berlin, Germany. The eight edition of the World Series of Poker Europe will also feature a number of side events, satellites, cash games and tournaments.
Some of these events include a Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em that has a buy-in of €2,200; “The Oktoberfest” No-Limit Hold’em that has a buy-in of €550; “Monster Stack” No-Limit Hold’em that has a buy-in for €1,650 and the Eight-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha that has a buy-in for €3,250. The WSOP Europe Main Event will as usual be the highlight of the tour and comes with a €10,450 buy-in.
In a statement, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said
Germany is truly a hotbed for poker talent. As home country to our reigning Player of the Year and 2011 World Champion, we look forward to discovering new names ready to perform on poker’s biggest stage. Berlin became a logical choice city for WSOP Europe given its proximity to all of Europe, the experienced management team at Spielbank, and the gap of time since a major poker tournament has come to the city. We believe this truly will be the best organized and contested WSOP Europe ever.
The last time the WSOP Europe tournament organized bracelet events was back in 2013. The event took place at the Casino Barrière d’Enghien in Enghien-les-Bains, France and the main event was won by Adrian Mateos who walked away with a €1 million payday and a main event title.
This year’s WSOP Europe event is expected to attract some of the best professional poker players in Europe as hundreds of lesser known poker players who are looking to win the main event and establish their careers as professional poker players.
