WSOPE schedule announced

Wednesday, 11 May 2011

Organisers of the World Series of Poker Harrah's have confirmed that this year's European event will take place in Cannes from 7th to 20th October.

A total of seven bracelets will be on offer at the first WSOPE on French soil including short handed, PLO, short handed PLO, shoot out and standard no limit hold'em events. Perhaps most intriguing is the four-day €10,000 split no limit hold'em event which will feature one day of nine handed action, one day of six handed action and a day of heads-up competition. The final will then be contested heads up between the last pair standing.

“Our new venue in Cannes along with our new partnership with Barrière Poker will offer the best player experience we have ever had for WSOP Europe,” said WSOP vice president Ty Stewart. “Players will find non-stop action throughout the two-week event, plus plenty of fun distractions in Cannes to make this the perfect poker vacation.”
