World Series of Poker Releases WSOP Europe, International Circuit Schedules

The World Series of Poker announced the schedule for the live international circuit tour for 2022-23 last week as well as the WSOP Europe.

Beginning in September  the WSOP international circuit will include 10 stops for the new season. WSOP Europe also returns in October and the entire schedule is now available.

“The World Series of Poker is ready to go international once again,” WSOP Senior Vice President and executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release. “Poker is bigger than ever and there has been a recent run of international champions in our Main Events. We’re excited to bring the once-in-a-lifetime poker experiences of the WSOP-C and WSOP Europe back to transcontinental players.”

Circuit events are designed to give recreational and amateur players an opportunity to participate in the WSOP experience. These events come with a lower price point and a smaller time commitment than the traditional WSOP in Las Vegas.

15 bracelets available in WSOP Europe

The WSOP action continues this fall at King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, from Oct. 16 – Nov. 16 with 15 bracelets up for grabs

“We’re very excited to host the biggest and most prestigious tournament series with the biggest guarantees in Europe without any limitations and struggles of the past two years,” King’s owner Leon Tsoukernik said in a news release. 

The series will include buy-ins from €350 to €50,000. The €10,350 Main Event begins on Nov.11 includes a $5 million guarantee.

The series features No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, Short Deck, and more. Some notable tournaments include:

  • €350 NLHE Opener  (Event 1, Oct. 26) – €500,000 guaranteed
  • €1,350 Mini Main Event (Event 3, Oct. 31) – €1 million guaranteed

WSOP Circuit kicks off in Europe

The WSOP Circuit international schedule kicks off at King’s as well from Sept. 21 – Oct. 11. Players will be happy to see an easier travel experience now with many travel restrictions lifted. That includes American players who may want to head overseas. 

“Travel restrictions for players coming from the US have been lifted,” Tsoukernik said. “We’re all set to deliver first-class service and hospitality for all poker players at King’s.”

Most tour stops are 12 days and conclude with a $1,700 Main Event. Buy-ins generally range from $250 to $5,300. Each stop awards multiple championship rings to tournament winners.

The tournament series spans the globe for 2022-23. Beyond Europe, the series also heads to Brazil, Mexico, and Canada

“I will be looking to play the WSOP Circuit abroad,” New Hampshire poker player Matthew Soleyn says. “Potentially the stop in the Netherlands at Holland Casino in Rotterdam.”
