WSOP Scales Back International Stops

No World Series of Poker Europe until 2015

“There is a glut of poker tournaments around the world, and our vision is to each year put on a single global showcase that can’t be missed.” Ty Stewart, WSOP Executive Director

Seems like there CAN be too much of a good thing/ The World Series of Poker announced this week that they would be scaling back on the worldwide action and begin alternating international events – effective immediately! That means no European stop in 2014 as the WSOP plans to return to Australia this year for WSOP APAC. The European stop will be back on the calendar in 2015, if all goes well. Don’t worry bracelet hunters, the number of events are going to double so there’s just as many chances to get a piece of hardware in a small field tournament.

This also means that the start of the WSOP Player of the Year race is in Las Vegas, when the summer series begins. For the full story, check out our sister site, pokerfuse, which has all the details!
