Ladies Bracelet Event Added to 2013 WSOPE
The schedule for the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe was announced last May, however, there has been an addition to the schedule.
Officials have added the first ever €1,000 + €100 buy-in Ladies No-Limit Hold’em tournament to beginning of the schedule.
The tournament will open the WSOPE on October 11th and run for two days. It means that this year there are eight gold bracelets up for grabs, one more than in the previous two years.
The executive director of the WSOP, Ty Stewart, said, “We first offered a Ladies event at the Vegas WSOP in 1977, and felt it was the right time to add this tradition to WSOPE. We need to do more to promote ladies involvement with the game, and with the many breakout stars in the region, it feels like a women’s European championship is long overdue.”
During the two week WSOPE there will be 46 non-bracelet side events. The first open bracelet event is a No Limit Hold’em re-entry event on Saturday October 12th. The Main Event is a No Limit Hold’em €10,000 + €450 beginning on October 19th.
