TAGs: Joshua Reichard, WSOP, WSOPE

The World Series of Poker Europe returns to the King’s Resort October 15 to November 4 with ten bracelets up for grabs, and Brett and Joshua Reichard win gold rings in Milwaukee. 

With Valentine’s Day an obscene phone call away, it’s time to stop thinking about yourself, and instead, think of the person who puts up with your daily 24-table grinds.

Roses?

Benzedrine-infused chocolates?

How about this: according to Trip Advisor, Prague is one of the most romantic cities in the world. Why not take your other half to visit Charles Bridge, the Statue of St. Wenceslas, and the King’s Resort in Rozvadov?

Maybe, October 15 – November 4?

The 2019 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) returns to the King’s Resort in Rozvadov, in the Czech Republic for the third successive year, and there will be ten gold bracelets on tap, and the coronation of the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year.

There were plenty of jackals howling to the moon when the WSOP announced plans to host their second most prestigious series in a tiny village that houses 703 people, but the numbers have been through the roof.

In 2018, Leon Tsoukernik found room for 6,028 entrants, and between them, the King’s Casino and the WSOP distributed €20,997,184 in prize money, on top of 10-bracelets.

Once again the final round in this boxing match of a series will be the €10,000 buy-in WSOPE Main Event, Oct 25-30, and that’s all we know for now, as the team continue to iron out the specifics.

“The past two WSOP Europe’s have been our best yet in terms of entries and prize pools in the dozen years we’ve held WSOPE,” WSOP Director Gregory Chochon stated in a press release. “King’s Resort is perfectly situated and convenient for Europeans to get to and we expect the 2019 edition to continue to deliver big prize pools and participation.”

Last year, Jack Sinclair defeated a field of 534-entrants to win the €10,000 WSOPE Main Event for $1,290,575, Mikita Badziakouski and Michael Addam won €25,000 High Rollers, Ryan Riess won a €10,000 Turbo High Roller, and Martin Kabrhel and Ivan Leow took down the €100k Super High Rollers.

Meet The Reichards

Sticking with the WSOP theme and the Reichards have been smashing up the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) at the Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee.

On February 2, ‘Daddy’ Brett Reichard defeated a field of 267-entrants to win the $21,590 first prize in the $400 No-Limit Hold’em event, and a few days later his son Joshua Reichard conquered the 173-entrant field winning the $15,410 first prize in a $400 Pot-Limit Omaha event.

It was Brett’s second gold ring, and Joshua’s 11th, tying with Maurice Hawkins one place below Valentin Vornicu at the top of the WSOPC most rings won leaderboard.
