World Series of Poker Europe countdown continues

Friday, 31 August 2012

For the second year running Cannes will play host to the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE), which begins this year on September 21st and will run until October 4th. The Casino Barrière de Cannes Croisette, in conjunction with the Hôtel Majestic Barrière once again take the hosting honours with signing up as the event's official partner.

Cannes is many wonderful things but one thing it is not is cheap. Players looking to make a saving on their stay on the French Riviera can take advantage of an offer from the five star Hotel Majestic Barriere which is offering a seventh night free if players book for six nights. Similarly, the four star Hotel Gray d’Albion is offering a fifth night free to players who book for four nights. Both hotels must be booked by 4 September.

Seven bracelets will be awarded at this year’s series as well as the WSOP Player of the Year award which is currently incredibly tight at the top.
Elio Fox won last year’s WSOPE, outlasting a field of 593-runners and a final table that included Jake Cody and Chris Moorman to walk away with a first prize of €1.4m.
