Qualification Window Closing to World Series of Poker Europe 2010

At the Betfair Casino there are three remaining dates for qualifiers for the Main Event of the World Series of Poker Europe 2010. The Betfair Casino, a large entity in the online gaming field, presents satellite tournaments via its site so that its players may have the chance to win seats at the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) 2010 events.  This is the fourth successive year that the Betfair Casino has offered this possibility and also presents a buy-in option. Satellite tournaments leading to seats at the WSOPE events have become extremely popular as they present the opportunity for amateur poker players to try their hand against top poker professionals. It is also quite probable that amateur players will be pitted against big poker names at the early stages of the tournament.  Interest in online poker has shown a great increase in recent years and the WSOP and WSOPE events draw great attraction. The Betfair Casino has experienced an increase this year in the number of amateur contenders for the satellite tournaments to the WSOPE. This demonstrates the growth in the online poker market over Europe. This year's WSOPE tournament in London starts on Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 at the Casino at the Empire at Leicester Square.  The big attraction of this tournament, the Main Event, is scheduled to start on Thursday, September 23rd 2010.  Potential players that have not won seats via a qualifier may try to access the event through a £10,350 buy-in.  Satellite tournaments will be operating at the Betfair Casino close to the date of the Main Event. The final such satellite tournament will take place on September 22nd, the day before the Main Event. The WSOPE has been operating in London for four years and this has quickly turned into an eagerly awaited item in the poker yearly schedule.
