Harrah’s has confirmed that the 2009 World Series Of Poker Europe (WSOPE) will take place at the Casino at the Empire in Leicester Square, London between 18th September and 1 October 2009.

The major change for 2009 is the introduction of a new £2,500 mixed Pot Limit Omaha / Pot Limit Hold Em event which replaces the H.O.R.S.E tournament. In addition to the £10,000 No-limit hold’em Main Event there will be £1,000 No-limit hold’em and £5,000 Pot-limit Omaha contests.

The full schedule is as follows:

Friday, 18 September 2009: Event No. 1 (£1,000+£60) — No-limit hold’em (three-day event/two start days)
Monday, 21 September 2009: Event No. 2 (£2,500+£150) — Pot-limit hold’em/pot-limit Omaha (three-day event)
Wednesday, 23 September 2009: Event No. 3 (£5,000+£250) — Pot-limit Omaha (three-day event)
Saturday, 26 September 2009: Event No. 4 (£10,000+£350) — Main event (five-day event/two start days)

"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. "Winning a gold bracelet is recognized globally as the top prize in the sport and we look forward to awarding four more bracelets in 2009 at the Casino at the Empire in London."

Satellites for all four bracelet events are running exclusively at David Yu, CEO of tournament sponsor Betfair said "We will remain the only place to qualify online for the WSOPE tournament and we are also very excited about the new $1 million promotion which with free entry will give the WSOPE a wider appeal and add more value than ever before."
