The forthcoming edition of the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) will now give two chances instead of one to European players to enjoy a WSOP-branded event. Earlier the upcoming European edition of the WSOP Circuit was to visit Berlin in October but now it will bring many more live poker events to the ‘Old Continent.’
This first-ever launch of WSOP event will take place at the Casino di Campione in Italy. Though the official program of the event is yet to be released but it is likely to be scheduled between September 16 to September 30. A series of satellites for WSOPE tournaments have already been planed by organizers in Italy. This surprise event has been organized to help the WSOP brand gain more popularity in Europe, and will also work in support of October’s WSOPE stop in Berlin.
The announcement of the WSOP Circuit in Italy happened when the country found itself without any major international live poker event, especially after the European Poker Tour decided to take Italy’s Sanremo stop off the schedule. The event is set to take place 10 days before the beginning of the WSOP Europe in Berlin, and WSOPE will run a number of satellites to the Italy event once in Campione.
WSOP Europe is making efforts to finalize deals with other European locations, so number of countries may soon get the honor of hosting an event organized by the most famous brand in the live poker industry. Furthermore, Europe is not the only continent the group is interested in, that is, poker players will soon get to see WSOP Circuit events in Morocco, Mexico and Latin-America.
