2011 WSOPE Dates Announced

The money and the bracelet

With the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas just a few weeks away, the fifth annual World Series of Poker Europe Presented by BarrierePoker.fr has finalized its tournament schedule.

The Casino Barrière de Cannes Croisette and the Hôtel Majestic Barrière in Cannes, France will play host to two-weeks of poker action running Oct. 7-20.

The series will feature seven bracelet events - the most ever offered at the WSOPE.

“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.”

The festivities will get underway with a €2,500+€180 Three-Day Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em event Friday, October 7.

Other events include No-Limit Hold’em, No-Limit Hold’em Shootout, Pot-Limit Omaha, Six-Handed Pot Limit Omaha, and the €10,000+€400 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event.

A unique €10,000+€400 four-day split-format event, featuring nine-handed play the first day, six-handed on the second and Heads-Up on Day 3 through to the final table has also been added.

Organizers are calling this the "All-Around" No-Limit Hold’em Championship.

Non-stop cash games, satellites and other events will also be scheduled during the tournaments.
