The 2018 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) is just around the corner. Poker players in Europe as well as from other parts of the world will make their way to the popular King’s Casino in Rozvodov, Czech Republic.
The WSOPE is set to take place between October 9 and November 2 and a total of ten gold bracelets will be awarded along with millions of dollars in guaranteed prize money.
Just about every poker player in the world wants to win a WSOP gold bracelet. Those who missed out during the recently concluded 2018 WSOP in Las Vegas will now get another chance at a coveted gold bracelet at the WSOPE.
The 25-day poker extravaganza features 10 bracelet events that have a combined €13,000,000 in guaranteed cash prizes including a €5,000,000 guaranteed €10,300 No-Limit Hold’Em Main Event.
The festival kicks off on October 9 with the €550 COLOSSUS No-Limit Hold ‘Em tournament which has €1,000,000 in guaranteed prizes. Matouš Skořepa beat a field of 4,115 players last year and took home €270,000 along with his first bracelet. Players are allowed unlimited re-entries and they can register daily until the tenth level ends.

The €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold’Em event is also sure to draw a lot of players.

Players will start this event with 40,000 chips and they will be able to enter the tournament three times.
