The package includes the €10,350 buy-in to the WSOPE Main Event, $400 for travel expenses and five nights accommodation in Rozvadov.

Speaking of renewing 888poker’s sponsorship of the WSOPE, Itai Pazner, the Senior Vice President & Head of B2C at 888 Holdings, said:

"We are thrilled that our ongoing partnership with the WSOP has been extended to the hugely anticipated WSOPE Poker Festival in Rozvadov. 888poker works very hard to make big poker events like this accessible to all its players, giving them the chance to win big money and compete for a coveted bracelet. I’m confident that the Event will be a huge success, with Kings Casino delivering a professional, fun and unmissable live poker experience for all. Good luck!”

Star-Studded Crowds Expected at the WSOPE

With the 2017 WSOP in Las Vegas done and dusted, there are several players still in the hunt to win the coveted title of Player of the Year, and PokerNews expects many of those players to make the trip to Europe where POY points are up for grabs.

Currently, it is Chris Ferguson who tops the 2017 WSOP POY Leaderboard, but only by 22.11 points from Ryan Hughes. Others who are hot on Ferguson’s heels include John Monnette and John Racener, while a solid WSOPE could see the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Dario Sammartino and Kenny Hallaert challenge for the title.
