The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has brought its suitcase to Cannes in the South of France, in what will prove to be two-weeks of some of the most entertaining poker on the planet.
It is, of course, the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE), where seven-golden bracelets will be slung onto the slender wrists of a few very happy card players indeed.
The first offering is the €2,700 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE) event. Last year, it attracted a field of 360 players, with the Frenchman, Guillaume Humbert, bagging the title.
That is followed by a €1,100 NLHE event, which last year attracted 771-runners, with the Aussie, Andrew Hinrichsen, taking down the title.
The other five events are the €5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO), €3,250 NLHE Shootout, €10,345 NLHE Mix-Max, €1,650 Six-Handed PLO, and finally the €10,450 NLHE Main Event.
The Caesars Cup event, where the top players from the US and Europe take each other on – a la the Ryder Cup - has been dropped, but there will be an exciting €50,000 High Roller event that will no doubt attract some of the top players in the world.
All seven-bracelet events will be streamed live on the WSOP website, and there will also be live commentary both in English and in French. David Tuchman will take on the job for the English, and Nicolas Chai for the French.
The community cards and all-in player cards will be shown, but the hold-cards will be kept a secret, with the exception of the Main Event itself, which will be shown with a 15-minute delay.
