Yesterday the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE), which will be in Europe for some reason again this year which is the home continent of Doutzen Kroes (at right, must watch commercial here, schritting never seemed so sexy) announced that it will run from September 19th to October 1st, 2008 in London, England. This year’s WSOPE is presented by Betfair.
Like last year, the tournament will be hosted by London Clubs International and will be held at St. James (Fifty), Leicester Square (The Casino at the Empire) and Marble Arch (Sportsman).

“It was a clean sweep for the Europeans last year. There are many, many talented players in the European poker community and I think it caught some of the world’s best known poker players by surprise. It’s safe to say the pros haven’t forgotten about last year and the young guns should expect a tougher fight in 2008.”
The schedule of events is still being finalized.
