WSOP Europe announces 2015 schedule

The World Series of Poker Europe has solidified its tournament schedule for its eighth iteration with a new host country and venue expected to greatly enhance participation and interest.

World Series of Poker Europe is set for Oct. 8-24, 2015, in the Spielbank Berlin in Germany with 10 WSOP gold bracelet events up for grabs, plus a plethora of side events, including cash games, satellites and other daily tournaments. (Full schedule.)

In addition to a new locale and new venue, several exciting new bracelet events have been added, including "Oktoberfest," the WSOP's first €550 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event in Europe (beginning Oct. 9,) and the least expensive pot-limit Omaha in WSOP history, a €550 buy-in tournament starting on Oct. 15.

Of course, the event concludes with two big buy-in events, which both will be broadcast for television, the €10,450 Main Event on Oct. 18 and the €25,600 High Roller event on Oct. 21.

"Germany is truly a hotbed for poker talent," said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. "As home country to our reigning Player of the Year and 2011 world champion, we look forward to discovering new names ready to perform on poker's biggest stage. Berlin became a logical choice city for WSOP Europe given its proximity to all of Europe, the experienced management team at Spielbank, and the gap of time since a major poker tournament has come to the city. We believe this truly will be the best organized and contested WSOP Europe ever."

WSOP Europe will open Thursday, Oct. 8 with a €2,200 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em event. Several other fun events are on tap, including a Monster Stack event, an eight-handed PLO event, a Turbo No-Limit Hold’em and a Mixed Event.
