WSOP Europe adds a ladies event to the 2013 schedule two months before the series starts.
The €1,000 buy-in Ladies Tournament will be the first bracelet event on the calendar out of eight in total.
There will also be 46 non-bracelet side events during the series.
Ty Stewart, WSOP Executive Director 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.”
WSOPE 2013 begins on October 11th and ends with the WSOPE Main Event final table on October 25th.
The events will take place at the lakefront Casino Barrière Enghien-les-Bains.
Pokerlisting in cooperation with 888poker will provide the official live coverage.
