Three full hours of World Series of Poker Europe Main Event action begins Sunday, Feb. 7, at 10 p.m. on ESPN2.
Once again, the Casino at the Empire in the heart of London’s theater district is the host of this prestigious event, and for the third straight year, most of the world’s top pros were there, including Doyle Brunson seated with Phil Hellmuth at the featured table on opening day.
Hellmuth, who is widely known for his over-the-top entrances to big poker events, doesn’t disappoint in London. Once that sideshow is over, poker begins at the highest level. Elite pros including Mike Matusow, Andy Bloch, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius battle it out for the coveted WSOPE Main Event bracelet and the nearly $1.3 million first-place prize.
Lon McEachern and Norman Chad call the action – joined by sideline reporter and professional poker player Kara Scott.
