Itís going to be a big couple of months for poker in the Capital as London becomes the epicentre of the tournament world once again. Gambling takes a look at all the best of the action this Autumn

WHAT: World Series of Poker Europe

WHEN: September 14-29

WHERE: Casino at the Empire, Leicester Square

It seems like barely a few days ago that this yearís November Nine jetted off to their respective hometowns to recuperate for the big dance in Vegas this winter, but the World Series of Poker is already back on manoeuvres with their European festival hitting London in September.

With speculation that the 2010 WSOPE would be relocating to a new city this year being further fuelled by poker legend Doyle Brunsonís public backing of a move to Barcelona, Gambling is pleased to report that Ė for the time being at least Ė the series will again be played out in the Casino at the Empire, in Londonís Leicester Square.

This yearís WSOPE features a slightly revamped tournament roster featuring five events in four different disciplines. Action kicks off on 14 September as players take their seats in a brand new £2,500 buy-in six-max NLHE event, while two days later Omaha aficionados can take their shot at the £5,000 PLO tournament.

Those wishing to participate in something a little less expensive and a little more traditional will not go wanting either, as the following day a conventional £1,000 NLHE tournament scheduled to last a whopping five days gets underway, with a record field and (hopefully) record prize pool expected to easily be generated.

Things get a little spicier on 21 September, however, as a $10,000 High Roller Heads-Up event looks to attract some of the biggest names in the game to the Casino at the Empire for some high-stakes one-on-one action. Hopefully theyíll all stick around for a little while, as two days later the traditional $10,000 NLHE Main Event begins as we search for a new European champion in London.
