Who Will Be Crowned The First King of Europe?

Share this
The World Series of Poker travels to Europe in September 2007. Betfair.com is an online gambling site based out of London and they are partnering with Harrah's to host the first ever World Series of Poker Europe. I noticed that Betfair set up a booth directly outside of the Amazon Room at the Rio when the Main Event started and I sat down with Glen Cassidy to find out more about the website.

Glen informed me that "Betfair is Europe's leading sports betting exchange and online gaming group, and Betfair Poker is one of the fastest growing online poker rooms."

Although we can't win a seat online if we live in the United States, we can certainly drive over to the Rio and buy-in to the Main Event for a mere $20,0000.

For our European readers, BetFair.com is offering WSOPE packages (including flights and hotel) worth $23,000 every week. Betfair has a variety of special satellites. They even introduced daily and weekly free roll giveaways to new and current members. Betfair.com does not accept U.S. citizens.

"The 2007 WSOP Europe will comprise of three bracelet events - Events 56, 57 and 58 of the WSOP - September 6th - 16th 2007".

Event #56 is a three-day, £2,500 buy-in (approximately $4,900 U.S.) HORSE Event. Event #57 is a two-day event, £5,000 buy-in (approximately $9,800 U.S.), Pot-Limit Omaha tournament starting September 8. On September 10, the WSOP Europe Main Event - a six-day, £10,000 buy-in (approximately $19,600 U.S.) No Limit Texas Hold'Em Championship - will begin at The Casino at The Empire, The Sportsman and Fifty. The playing field will be consolidated beginning September 13 at The Casino at The Empire.

The Casino at The Empire, a new casino in the heart of London's famous West End is the location of the WSOPE and it looks like a jewel. They boast two luxury casino floors, stylish restaurants, playful electric evenings, and lively destination bars. The venue opened in May 2007 and promises to have a poker room fully equipped and staffed to cater to a large tournament like the WSOPE.

Join and play BetFair today for your opportunity to win a seat in these great events.
