European Masters of Poker to Feature WCOOP Winner

September 29, 2011

On the heels of PokerStars’ World Championship of Online Poker, the European Masters of Poker has kicked off in Barcelona, Spain. The tournament will run through October 2nd and is expected to draw in at least the player field of last year, which capped out at 430. Finland’s Matias Knaapinen won the event last year and scored a €93,000 payout for his first place victory. Buy-in to this year’s European Masters of Poker Main Event is €1,100, so the prize pool is expected to rise significantly.

Speaking of the WCOOP, recent winner of this year’s WCOOP, Denmark’s Thomas Pedersen, is expected to attend the EMOP and will be representing Victory Chandler Poker’s Team VC.

A full schedule of side events will also be featured with varying buy-ins including a €550 NLH event two-day event that will begin on October 1.
