What’s on the schedule?
The King’s Resort in Rozvadov is about to become very popular with poker fans. The casino opened its doors to the WSOP European Circuit in early January and has been consistently hosting poker competitions all through January, covering every variation of poker you can think of. There will be Fiftystack, Omaha, Bounty Hunter, Monsterstack, 5 and 7-card stud, ladies’ events, and more, all culminating at The Main Event of the WSOPE on January 23rd. Everyone who wins a ring is automatically offered a seat at the table for the biggest cash prize, which this year is reaching a whopping €1 million in guaranteed prizes!
What’s happened so far?
One of the biggest moments so far of the WSOP Europe circuit was the Mini Main Event. 1,397 players entered the arena, but only one could exit with the coveted WSOP bracelet.
The winner was Switzerland’s own Emil Bise, who rose to the top and gained €260,175 as well as a seat at The Main Event on top of his WSOP bracelet, which he can add to his two WSOP rings at home.
The game was cinched when it came down to Bise and his Romanian opponent, Gicovanu. After some back and forth, the river offered Bise a jack for a full house, resulting in the Swiss poker player taking home the top prize.
The Swiss player made sure to remind people of his previous Main Event win, and how he does intend to return and win this year’s Main Event, so you can look out for him at the table on January 23rd.
“It’s beautiful, it’s a beautiful feeling and I am very happy,” Bise said. “Yes, very proud, I won the WSOP Circuit Main Event here three years ago but this is very special.”
“King’s [Resort] is my second home,” he added. “I love the WSOP and big series, the WSOP is my series.”
