World Series of Poker Europe part III
Three is the magic number as the third World Series of Poker Europe launches September, 14, 2010, at The Empire Casino in Leicester Square in London.
If you have never been to a World Series of Poker event this is the one to check out. Aside from the guest list of poker celebrities and charming events you will have history unfolding in front of your eyes.
One of the new and more exciting events to begin is a back to back day of £2,500 No-Limit Holdem. This 6-max tournament will be followed by the £5,000 PLO event; the £1,000 No-Limit Holdem event and the £10,000 Main Event. Meanwhile, the £10,000 heads-up High Roller tournament is slated to start up on Tuesday, September 21st.
One interesting angle to pay attention to here is the politics behind potential wins. Certain bracelet bets have been made by some of the more esteemed leaders in the game. If Tom Dwan receives a bracelet he will then break even with Phil Ivey and in effect win the other bets; however, if Ivey wins a bracelet he will successfully draw a ridiculous sum of $5,000,000 from the Full Tilt Poker boss himself, Mr. Howard Lederer.
For all of us who wait for showdowns like this, the details coming out of London now are extremely interesting and exciting. Stay tuned for more news but for now check out the WSOE schedule to stay with the action.
