The world’s top poker players have converged upon the Empire Casino in London’s Leicester Square to try and claim some coveted hardware, with 5 World Series of Poker bracelet events to be played out there over the next 2 weeks.
2010 marks the 4th year that the World Series of Poker has taken the show across the Atlantic and has held additional bracelet events overseas. By all appearances, it seems like this year’s WSOPE will break attendance records, as the first event, £2,500 buy-in Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em was sold out (244 players).
Michael “the Grinder” Mizrachi, as well as fellow November Niners Filippo Candio and John Racener, will play in most of the WSOPE events and are hoping to continue the momentum that led them all to make the 2010 WSOP Main Event final table.
Some big names still alive in WSOPE Event 1 include Chris Bjorin, Chris Moorman, Phil Laak, Liv Boeree, Brunson 10 member Praz Bansi, and 2009 WSOP Player of the Year Jeffrey Lisandro.
