WSOPE Begins – World Series of Poker Europe
Posted on September 15, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) starts this week in the classy city of London. As an overview the WSOPE began back at 2007 with only three events. The next two years the series played four events while this year the events were increased to five. A total of £15,166,890 shared in those 11 events over the last three years while the number of poker players that participated so far are 2924. In 2007, the average number of participants for the 3 events was 207.67. This figure rose to 261.75 in 2008, while the £1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event attracted more players and therefore helped the average figure to rise again to 313.5 players.
This year there are 5 events scheduled and as the number of entries increase every year so do the prizes. A similar increase was experienced also at the WSOP this summer in Las Vegas. On this year’s program there is only one non Hold’em event which is the £5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. This event is expected to attract without any doubt many of the high profile names of the offline and online poker world – something that has also happened in previous years as the participants for these events reached an average of 160.
In place of Hold’em /Omaha event organizers have added two new events: the £2,500 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Handed event and the £10,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller Heads-Up event.

Apparently the “main” dish for this year’s WSOP-E is no other than September 23’s NL Hold’em Championship (Main Event). In the previous two years the level of competition was extremely high, something that was commended by one of the top poker players of the world, Daniel Negreanu of PokerStars, Negreanu was able to reach the final table of both last two WSOP-E Main Events, a tremendous achievement which did not come to accomplishment, however, to a WSOPE bracelet. Let us remember the last WSOPE hand that gave the Bracelet to Shulman despite the fact that was counting only on two outs!
