With the upcoming summer WSOP schedule now mostly confirmed, fall dates for the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe are also now set for Oct. 15 through Nov. 4. For the third year in a row, the WSOPE will be hosted by the King's Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic where 10 official WSOP gold bracelets will be handed out once again.
Initial WSOPE Rozvadov Details
While the full details of the individual event schedule will be announced at a later date, the €10,000 buy-in WSOP Europe Main Event is slated to run Oct. 25-30, 2019.
Known for top-notch amenities and plenty of action in both tournaments and 24/7 cash games, the venue staff look forward to once again hosting the prestigious event.
“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.”
A Growing Event
The 2018 WSOPE drew 6,028 entries over its 10-bracelet event schedule, bringing the total prize pools up to €20,997,184, the Main Event dishing out just over €5,000,000 of that. Jack Sinclair defeated a field of 534 to win the Main Event for his first gold bracelet and €1,122,239 ($1,277,013) — which marked his second seven-figure score on WSOP felt after he finished eighth in the 2017 WSOP Main Event for $1.2 million.

“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.”
