If you’re a lover of all things poker, chances are you’re already planning which events to attend, and perhaps even participate in, in 2018. When it comes to big competitions, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) has to be at the top of your list. Having been in operation since way back in 1970, the WSOP isn’t just where all the best players congregate – it’s a poker institution. World Series of Poker Texas Holdem is the best you’re likely to see, and it’s coming to Europe! If Las Vegas has always seemed a tad too far away, the European Tour will gift you the same poker fix, closer to home. Today we’re looking at the key dates on the European Tour and revealing a little about what you can expect…

After eight exciting days in the heat of Marrakech, Morocco, the action hops across the Mediterranean and heads north to the King’s Casino in Rosvadov on the Czech Republic’s border with Germany. Things kick off on March 1st with the five-day WSOP Circuit Opening ring event. For a buy-in of just €299 players will be in the running to take home a guaranteed prize of €300,000. March 8th sees the start of both the Seniors Event and the Circuit Monster Stack, which has a whopping €200,000 up for grabs. If you fancy mixing it up a little from Texas Hold’em, on March 10th there’s yet another ring event – this time the €300 WSOP Circuit Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo. You’ll have to wait until March 16th for the Main Event to commence, when for a buy-in of €1,650 players will compete for a prize pool of €1,000,000.
