The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has announced its schedule for the rest of 2022 and 2023.
This includes WSOP Europe and the 2022-23 WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C).
The 2022 WSOP Europe will take place at King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, from 26 October to 16 November, with the Main Event starting on 11 November.
The WSOP-C also begins its 2022 international run at King’s Resort on 21 September, with 10 confirmed stops scheduled so far, with many more set to be announced soon. Along with earning a spot in the invitation-only Tournament of Champions event at the 2023 WSOP in Las Vegas, each champion from the live or online circuit events will get a WSOP gold ring.
“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 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.”
Stops throughout the WSOP-C include Cintermex Convention Center in Monterrey, Mexico, The Star Sydney in Australia, Deerfoot Inn & Casino in Calgary, Canada, and Es Saadi Marrakech Resort in Marrakech, Morocco, among many others.
World Series of Poker Senior Vice President and Executive Director Ty Stewart commented: “The World Series of Poker is ready to go international once again. Poker is bigger than ever and there has been a recent run of international champions in our Main Events. We’re excited to bring the once-in-a-lifetime poker experiences of the WSOP-C and WSOP Europe back to transcontinental players.”
