The World Series Of Poker Europe is again coming to Cannes for the second year running and will start on the 21st of September and run right through until the 4th October. It is to be hosted again at the Casino Barriere de Cannes Croisette and in conjunction with the Hotel Majestic Barriere.
This year there will be seven bracelets awarded, whilst there will also be the announcement of the World Series Of Poker Player Of The Year. With regards to the latter, it is still not certain who will be the one to achieve it, with it being extremely close at the top.
The winner of last years WSOPE was Elio Fox, having beat out a field of 593 entrants and a tough final table that included players such as Chris Moorman and Jake Cody. He went home with a massive 1.4 million for finishing as the top player.
Nottingham Goes Nutty!
Another weekends and another big tournament hits the poker scene in the UK. This one however is no ordinary poker tournament, the £500,000 Mega Deepstack at the Dusk Till Dawn Club in Nottingham is one of the nation’s biggest.
This event will run for five days and is actually using the same blind structure as the World Series Of Poker Main Event, so it is offering the same kind of experience as the WSOP at the knockdown price of £500.
Additionally, though many tournaments have recently decided on allowing re-buys into the event, this one has decided to go against the latest trend. They have decided to keep things the same as previous years.
There will be three flights for Day 1, and with Day 1a already been played on Thursday Day 1b is set to get underway today. Thursday saw a total of 235 players taking to the felt with just a minute 54 players successfully navigating themselves to Day 2.
Notable players who made it through include Tom Hall who is the current chip leader with 548,000, Gary Jones who has 385,000, Paul Jackson who has a healthy 316,500 and Stuart Fox who sits on 276,500 chips.
With Day 1a now over and Day 1b and Day 1c on their way, it is likely that this event will see over 1000 entrants in total. Day 1a is never a good estimation; the following flights normally carry the brunt of registrations.
