Poker players now have the schedules for two of the world’s most prestigious poker tournaments. The Las Vegas World Series of Poker will take place from May to July 2012 (See article: World Series of Poker 2012 Schedule out now) and now the WSOPE has announced that the World series of Poker Europe will take place for the second year running in Cannes in the South of France. This event is run in association with BarrierePoker.fr and it will run from the 21st of September to the 4th of October 1012.
It will take place in the Casino Barriere de Cannes Croisette and in the Hotel Majestic Barriere. This is the sixth year of the WSOPE and after having been held in London in England for the first four years it is now taking place for the second time in Cannes in France.Last year the World Series of Poker Europe was a great success in Cannes and even won the award for the Best European Poker Tournament at the European Poker Awards. The Barriere casino is sure to offer players a similar standard this year. The event will take place a few weeks earlier than last year so that the players will be able to benefit from good weather and all the amenities that Cannes has to offer players when they are not involved in actually playing poker.There will be seven bracelet events run over the two weeks of the World Series of Poker Europe.
