Five out of a total of eleven World Series of Poker Europe 2017 bracelets have been awarded with one tournament field record broken. As a matter of fact, with a juicy field of 523 entries, the €550 Pot Limit Omaha 8-max event now officially ranks first in the list of the biggest WSOPE PLO fields over the competition’s ten-year history.
This success story, though, is only the famous tip of the iceberg with a WSOPE 2017 festival featuring an already very promising Colossus event in which the guarantee was reached after two amazing last heats. More than 2.000 entries only for the Colossus flights I and J on the 31st of October pushed the New King’s hosting capacity to the limit and the tournament field reached 4.115 entries cracking the €2.000.000 guarantee in this €500 No Limit Hold’em event. So far, not only the bracelet events have been drawing massive fields. The numerous side events are also exceeding the expectations and are generating very interesting prize pools on a daily basis.
All this rumble in the jungle obviously had a boosting effect on the cash game areas that were extended to some tournament areas to fit a total of 52 simultaniously running tables during the last Colossus flights. With limits ranging from €1/3 to €500/500 on the No Limit Hold’em Live Stream Cash Game and Omaha or Mixed Games (12-Game) up to €100/200 running over the last days, everybody finds his game at King’s. Even Open Face Chinese lovers were able to repeatedly enjoy €25/point action over the first half of the festival.
The biggest events are yet to come though. The king of the High Roller events, the €111.111 One Drop is coming with its guarantee of €10.000.000 and there will be at least €5.000.000 in the €10.350 Main Event. The more affordable €1.111 Little One Drop also looks pretty good with its €500.000 guarantee.
In grand King’s Casino tradition, the schedule will keep featuring loads of side event action for all kinds of bankrolls.

Before the summer of 2017, the page was animated by 2 blogs: the Poker tournament blog and the general blog. Today, only the former tournament blog remains active featuring all sorts of updates in one place only. Easier for you, easier for us ... :)
