  • The WSOPE High Roller for One Drop will attract poker's biggest names including Phil Hellmuth.

The 2017 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) is just around the corner. The series will take place at King's Casino, located on the German border in Rozvadov, Czech Republic from Oct. 19 until Nov. 10.

A total of 11 WSOP gold bracelets are slated to be awarded throughout the festival. The highlight, of course, is the €10,350 WSOPE Main Event featuring a humongous €5 million guarantee on Nov. 4-10. But there's a little something for everyone, including those who prefer the highest stakes.

WSOPE High Roller for One Drop

This event may generate even more excitement with poker players and fans. The €111,000 WSOPE High Roller for One Drop features a €10 million guarantee — twice as much as the Main Event — and will attract some of the biggest names in poker, including Phil Hellmuth, Fedor Holz, Patrik Antonius, Antonio Esfandiari, Gus Hansen, Liv Boeree and Tony G. The event will donate the €11,111 rake less taxes to the One Drop Foundation from every player's initial buy-in.

The three-day tournament from Nov. 3-5 is a deep-stacked affair with players starting with 2 million in chips and blinds increasing every 60 minutes. Players can late-register or re-enter an unlimited amount of times until the end of Level 12 or the third blind level of Day 2.

Demand is strong for the event. Over the summer in Las Vegas, the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop, won by Doug Polk for $3,686,865, attracted a field of 130 players.

However, European-edition of the event is capped at 111 entrants. This is the main reason why King's Casino Owner Leon Tsoukernik decided to relinquish his seat while still donating money to charity.

"The demand is strong and I have given up my own seat and will play host instead," Tsoukernik said about the High Roller event. "My €11,000 deposit will go to One Drop."

In addition to the Main Event, the High Roller for One Drop and the nine other WSOP gold bracelet events, the WSOPE schedule features many affordable side events where bracelets will not be awarded. And of course, there will also be plenty of cash games of all buy-in levels running around the clock throughout the festival.
