Posted at 19:53 2009-04-18
After two successful years the European leg of the World Series of Poker is back at the Casino at the Empire in London from September 17th through to October 1st 2009.

"The World Series of Poker Europe has quickly established itself as the most prestigious tournament outside the United States," said World Series of Poker Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack. With the staging of the WSOP Europe in the September / October poker break means that the European leg will be again taking place during the interval of the Las Vegas Main Event and “November Nine”.

Presented by Betfair Poker the WSOP Europe will again feature four officially sanctioned gold bracelet events as was the case last year. Kicking off with a €1,060 No Limit Hold’em event followed by the new addition of the €2,650 Pot Limit Hold’em/Pot Limit Omaha mixed event. Commencing prior to the Main Event will be the highly popular €5,250 Pot Limit Omaha event which will be followed by the big dance of the €10,350 World Championship No Limit Hold’em Main Event.

Pre-registration is open for players at any London Clubs International venue in the United Kingdom with players at this Summer‘s WSOP in Las Vegas being able to pre-register for WSOP Europe events at the tournament cage at the Rio Hotel and Casino. The Rio will also play host to satellites during the busy poker month of July with Betfair Poker also sending qualifiers over to London via a range of online satellites.

With ESPN venturing back to catch all the action from the WSOP Europe, make sure to check out their planned ten hours of courage with ESPN360 airing live coverage in designated areas.

However you won’t have to search far for your WSOP Europe updates as PokerNetwork will be providing recaps, updates and news as it occurs from the Casino at the Empire in London from September 17th to October 1st.
