World Series of Poker Europe


The 2009 World Series of Poker Europe begins Friday September 18 and the action should be exciting.  Last year we witnessed one of the best known pros, Daniel Negreanu, go deep finishing fifth.  Russian player Ivan Demidov made it to the WSOP and WSOPE Main Event Final Tables in 2008.  John Juanda won it all.  And two years ago at the WSOPE premiere, we witnessed the youngest poker player even, Annette Obrestad from Norway, win a bracelet. 

he first event will be a £1,000 no-limit hold'em (event No. 1), and it will begin at noon BST (4 a.m. PDT).

One of the newest features of the WSOPE will be the Caesars Cup, described as a team-based no-limit hold'em tournament pitting European and U.S. players against one another.

Team America consists of captain Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, John Juanda and Jennifer Harman. Team Europe features captain Annette Obrestad, Peter Eastgate, Patrik Antonius, Dario Minieri, Bertrand Grospellier and Ilari Sahamies.  Other players are still to be determined.
