WSOPE Europe releases tournament schedule

9 May 2011

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The fifth annual World Series of Poker Europe Presented by Barriere has solidified its tournament schedule.

Players will be welcomed into the outstanding and unique settings of the Les Princes - Casino Barrière de Cannes and the Hôtel Majestic Barrière in the scenic French city of Cannes for a two-week slate of events commencing on October 7 and running through October 20, 2011.

The 2011 WSOPE will feature seven bracelet tournaments this year – the most ever offered at this prestigious event.

“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.”

A Six-Handed No Limit Hold’em event will kick off the tournament on Friday, October 7 at 5:00 PM, and feature a €2,500 + €180 buy-in and a 3-day structure.

Other events include No Limit Hold’em, No Limit Hold’em Shootout, Pot Limit Omaha, a six-handed Pot Limit Omaha, and a €10,000 + €400 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Main Event.

The most exciting new addition to the schedule is a unique split format event. This special four-day event will play Day 1 as 9-handed, Day 2 as six-handed, Day 3 as Heads-Up and the final table will be contested heads up. It’s being dubbed as All-Around No Limit Hold’em Championship and will feature a €10,000 + €400 buy-in.

Players will receive special room rates for their stay in Cannes. There are two different hotels we have arranged special rates, the Majestic and the Gray d’Albion. Room reservation details can be found here:

These seven tournaments will be sanctioned gold bracelet events. Non-stop cash games and other events will also be scheduled during the tournament, as well as a bevy of satellite tournaments.

The 2011 World Series of Poker Europe will be televised broadly around the world.
