WSOP Europe Scheduled for September

Reportedly to be Held in Europe

by , Jul 10, 2008 | 9:32 pm

The WSOP Europe schedule has been announced and will again be held in London, which is in Europe, by some strange coincidence.

If you’re not WSOP’ed up and out, or even if you are but can allow two months heal your wounds, the WSOPE will begin on September 19th with four (count ’em…four) events as follows:

Event 1 – Sept. 19th – 1500 Euro No-Limit Hold’em (3 days)
Event 2 – Sept. 22nd – 2500 Euro H.O.R.S.E. (3 days)
Event 3 – Sept. 24th – 5000 Euro Pot-Limit Omaha (3 days)
Event 4 – Sept. 27th – 10,000 Euro World Championship No-Limit Hold’em (5 days)

All of the above will be bracelet events held at the London Clubs International, and five additional non-bracelet events will be scheduled and announced at a later date.

For the sake of trademarks, the importance of which is pointed out by Wicked Chops, it should be noted that the WSOPE is officially the 2008 World Series of Poker Europe(sm) Presented by

    What does the ‘sm’ stand for?

    Small medium?
    Suspiciously meagre?
    Specifically miniscule?
    Some more?

    SM stands for service mark, which is sometimes used instead of a trademark for services, while trademarks are typically reserved for products or goods.

    Thanks Jen. I’m a bit rubbish at stuff like that. Found the website for anyone interested.
