Do you play the odd game of poker? Then grab your diary. Because in May the World Series Of Poker International Circuit-tournament is coming to Grand Casino Brussels Viage. From 19 to 28 May it will be poker all day long: PLO, H.O.R.S.E., dealer’s choice and even a deuce to seven triple-event are on the programme.
The history of the World Series of Poker – or WSOP for short – dates back to 1970. Benny Binion brought the seven best poker players in the United States together in Las Vegas. The start of a tradition.
Players meet every year and in 1987 the event already attracted over 2000 poker faces. The winner goes home with a huge prize and an exclusive bracelet. The World Series Of Poker in Las Vegas grew into the most important poker tournament in the world. You can call it the unofficial world championship.
In 2005, poker’s success knows no limit anymore and a spin-off started: the WSOP Circuit with tournaments across the United States. Those winners proudly wear the WSOP-ring on their finger. And, who knows, maybe you will be wearing it tomorrow. Because from 19 to 28 May the poker craze will strike Brussels.
Will you take part?
That WSOP-ring is already waiting for you. Or are you aiming even higher and dreaming of winning the exclusive WSOP-bracelet at the WSOP main event in Las Vegas? It’s possible!
Since April, the satellite events are on the programme – lets’ say the pre-selections for the main event taking place on 25 and 26 May. Then the participants will be fighting for a place at the final on Sunday 28 May. The winner of that final will go home with a great prize and the WSOP-ring.
From 19 May you can also take part in the satellite events in Brussels. As a winner you will be given a place in the final round on Sunday 28 May. There you will be fighting for a place at the WSOP main event in Las Vegas, poker’s Valhalla. And you know: what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Of course, you are also welcome just to come and soak up the atmosphere. Because there is always something to experience at Grand Casino Brussels Viage.
