The World Series of Poker and WSOP Europe host King’s Casino have jointly announced the complete bracelet-event schedule for this fall’s 2022 WSOP Europe series in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. Beginning on October 26, 2022, and running through November 15, the 2022 edition of WSOP will award 15 bracelets, while guaranteeing at least €12 million in prize-pool payouts.
The 15-event slate is highlighted by the WSOP Europe Main Event, which begins on November 11. The WSOP Europe ME features a €10,350 buy-in and will offer a €5 million guarantee, the highest such guarantee of the series. In 2021, the Czech Republic’s own Josef Gulas claimed the bracelet win over a 688-entry field, earning €1,276,712.
Other highlight on the schedule include a €50K NLH Diamond High Roller beginning on November 10. That two-day event offers its own €2 million guarantee. Three other bracelet events also offer a €1 million guarantee during the series’ nearly three-week run. Those include the €1,350 Mini Main that begins on October 31, the €550 Colossus tourney that begins on November 3, and a €25K NLH Platinum High Roller that gets underway on November 7. The complete 15-bracelet event schedule is shown below.
“We’re very excited to host the biggest and most prestigious tournament series with the biggest guarantees in Europe without any limitations and struggles of the past two years,” said King’s owner Leon Tsoukernik. “Finally, also travel restrictions for players coming from the US have been lifted. We’re all set to deliver first-class service and hospitality for all poker players at King’s.”
Among those likely to attend is France’s Julien Martini, who was the only double bracelet winner in the 2021 WSOP Europe series. Martini recently earned his fourth career WSOP bracelet by winning Event #79 of the 2022 WSOP in Las Vegas, the $10,000 Razz Championship.
Tsoukernik’s King’s Casino in Rozvadov has been the WSOP’s live home in Europe since 2017, hosting the live WSOP Europe series every year since, except for the pandemic-impacted year of 2020. This year’s series will also follow a WSOP International Circuit stop to be held at the same venue in late September and early October. Bracelet and ring winners from both stops will also be eligible for the 2023 WSOP “Tournament of Champions” event, to be held at the end of the 2023 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
