World Series of Poker Europe Moves to France

The World Series of Poker Europe is changing venues this year.  Since its inception in 2006, the WSOPE has been held in London.  For the first time ever, the event will be held in Cannes, France.

This year’s WSOPE will be held Oct. 7-21 at the Casino Barrière de Cannes Croisette and the Hôtel Majestic Barrière.  The establishment features 75 tables, which will offer double the capacity of recent World Series of Poker Europe events.  It is assumed that the participation numbers and cash prizes will also be grander.

"This is a unique agreement between two casino leaders with great brands," said Mitch Garber of Caesars Interactive Entertainment. "Lucien Barrière Hôtels & Casinos is a well-run organization and we are excited to work with them to access the French market with high-quality and reputable poker events both in their hotels and casinos, and online with BarrierePoker.fr."

Thomas Somach of Gambling911.com will report more shortly.
