WSOP 2007 Empire casino London leicester square

With the explosive growth of poker in the US and now the world, it only made sense that the World Series of Poker would expand further into Europe. This year marks the first ever World Series of Poker Europe. Interestingly enough, more than half the final table at the 2007 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas were born or resided outside the United States. This event will mark the first time that a WSOP bracelet will be awarded outside of Las Vegas.

The new poker series will be held at three casinos operated by London Clubs International – Fifty, The Casino at The Empire and the Sportsman.

On September 10, the WSOP Europe Main Event – a six-day, £10,000 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.
