Dates are locked with the 2019 WSOP Europe set to run from October 15 to November 4, again featuring 10 official WSOP gold bracelet events.

The WSOP Europe Main Event, a 10,000 euro buy-in championship event that featured a prize pool in excess of €5,000,000 in 2018, will be contested this year from October 25-30, 2019, capping off what is expected to be another ten gold bracelet affair over nearly three-weeks of non-stop action.

“We love hosting WSOP Europe and treating the game’s best players with our one-of-a-kind hospitality,” said King’s Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik. “We hope players who have participated in WSOPE come back this year, and for those yet to make it out to King’s, we strongly encourage you to make plans to join us for Europe’s richest annual live poker festival.”

Poker players continue to flock to King’s from all over Europe for good reason. It offers a first class poker and player experience including a complimentary buffet. King’s has a hotel, more than 200 poker tables, with cash games and tournaments running 24/7.

“The past two WSOP Europe’s have been our best yet in terms of entries and prize pools in the dozen years we’ve held WSOPE,” said WSOP Director Gregory Chochon. “King’s Resort is perfectly situated and convenient for Europeans to get to and we expect the 2019 edition to continue to deliver big prize pools and participation.”

In 2018, the 10-event WSOP Europe schedule saw 6,028 entries compete for €20,997,184 in prize money.

Included in WSOP Europe events will be broad content distribution of the official gold bracelet events. All official gold bracelet events will receive robust live reporting and live stream coverage.

King’s Resort Rozvadov is located in the Czech Republic, right near the German border, between Prague and Munich. The location is right in Central Europe, giving all Europeans an easy travel destination to play poker.
