Doyle Brunson, who already has 10 WSOP bracelets, is pre-registered to participate in the World Series of Poker Europe.

With pre-registration for the World Series of Poker open for two weeks now, some of the biggest and brightest players in the world have signed up to play already.

"There are over 60 WSOP bracelets between the pre-registrants so far," said Jeffrey Pollack, WSOP commissioner. "The inaugural World Series Europe will have a world-class field."

Some of the players already registered include: Phil Hellmuth, Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Erik Seidel, Roland de Wolfe, John Juanda, Allen Cunningham, Todd Brunson, Eli Elezra, Howard Lederer, Humberto Brenes and Jennifer Harman.

"I'm going to London to make history again by winning the first WSOP bracelet ever awarded outside of Las Vegas," said Phil Hellmuth who recently broke WSOP records by winning his eleventh bracelet.

The 2006 WSOP Main Event winner Jamie Gold has also said he plans to play at the London event.

"We want to have a strong presence on the ground at this event," said Ben Fried, head of poker for Betfair Poker, presenting sponsor of the WSOPE. "It's a fantastic opportunity for our players to compete against some of the greatest in the world."

The WSOPE will take place in London, Sept. 6-16. The events will take place in three casinos - Fifty in St. James; The Casino at the Empire, in Leicester Square; and the Sportsman at Marble Arch.
