The World Series of Poker has released the official schedule for the 2022 WSOP Europe, which will run from Oct. 26 through Nov. 15 this year at King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.
The 2022 WSOPE festival features 15 gold bracelet events, with €12 million in guaranteed prize money set to be awarded throughout the series.
“We’re very excited to host the biggest and most prestigious tournament series with the biggest guarantees in Europe without any limitations and struggles of the past two years. Finally, also travel restrictions for players coming from the US have been lifted”, said King’s owner Leon Tsoukernik. “We’re all set to deliver first-class service and hospitality for all poker players at King’s.”
This year’s schedule something for every player, with buy-ins ranging from as low as
€350 in the €500,000 guaranteed kickoff event, all the way up to €50,000 for the €2 million guaranteed no-limit hold’em high roller.
The marquee tournament of the whole series will, of course, be the 2022 WSOP Europe €10,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em main event. This year’s tournament features a €5 million guaranteed prize pool.
In 2021, the WSOPE main event attracted a record field of 688 entries, blowing away the €5 million guarantee to create a prize pool of €6,536,000, or $7,365,418 when rendered in USD at the exchange rate of that time. Josef Gulas Jr. emerged victorious in the end, defeating Johan Guilbert heads-up to capture the championship bracelet and the top prize of $1,429,917 USD.
