The World Series of Poker Europe Presented by BarrierePoker.fr has released the schedule for the sixth annual event. Seven bracelet events are featured and the series will run from Sept. 21 through Oct. 4, 2012, at the Casino Barrière de Cannes Croisette and the Hôtel Majestic Barrière in Cannes, France.
“We can’t wait to return to the Cote D’Azur in 2012,” said WSOP vice president Ty Stewart. “We have moved up the schedule a couple of weeks to take better advantage of the great weather and all Cannes has to offer. Ask anyone who attended last year. This tournament is now a certified major championship and the experience is second to none. The media is already speculating on 1,000 players for the Main Event and we will be ready for them.”
“We are pleased to welcome back this event to the Cannes Barrière resort,” added Alain Fabre, CEO of Barrière Croisette Casino. “The first edition of the WSOPE in Cannes was a great success, an award winning event that we took great pride in. We look forward to hosting the players again and will strive to make this 'festival of poker' even more fabulous.“
The schedule is identical to last year’s, but a slew of nonbracelet side events have been added to the lineup, though all are hold’em and Omaha games per French law.
