In four short years, the World Series of Poker Europe has established itself as one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world, featuring a best in class field made up of the game's greatest players, along with a slew of young, unproven whiz kids looking to use the event as their live tournament coming-out-party.
The 2010 version of WSOP Europe at the Casino at the Empire in the heart of London once again lived up to its reputation.
After 346 of the game's greatest players put up the £10,000 entry fee, only nine were left to battle it out for a £830,401 payday, and just as importantly, the WSOPE Main Event bracelet -- the equivalent of winning one of poker's majors.
ESPN2 offers complete final table coverage, with two hours of action beginning at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT.
Four different countries are represented, including three from the home country of the United Kingdom, along with four Americans, a Frenchman and an Italian now living in Monoco. Notables include Roland de Wolfe and Nicolas Levi, but don't let the lack of other big names fool you. These nine got through them all, and with a hometown cheering section rooting their three Brits on, this is one exciting roller coaster ride worth witnessing.
