Time indeed flies, its already six months into 2018 but it feels like the New Year was just a couple of months back. Depending on how your first six months have gone so far, this may be a good thing or a bad thing. However, what we know is that as long as you are a poker fanatic, you are going to love what you are about to read. The second half of the year brings with it top poker tournaments some of which you can play online at poker sites such as netbet.co.uk and some that you can play at land-based casinos. Let’s not waste another second and jump straight into the action.
World Series of Poker Tournament continues
One of the best if not the best poker tournament in the world, the World Series of Poker Tournament (WSOP) officially kicked off at the end of May but it’s still going and is in the penultimate stages now where things are heating up. Top poker players from all corners of the world are at the tournament vying for top honours. The tournament is being covered by most and if not all poker sites. Some of the top events still to be played in the WSOP this July include $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em MAIN EVENT – World Championship, The Little One for One Drop – $1,000 +111 No-Limit Hold’em, $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold’em/Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed, The Closer – $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em (30 minute levels) – $1 Million Guarantee, and the $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller (Big Blind Antes). WSOP tournament will come to a close on July the 15th with The Big One for One Drop – $1,000,000 No-Limit Hold’em event.
Olympic Summer Festival
From July 15 to 22nd July, the Olympic Summer Festival poker tournament will roar into life in Vilnius. Over the years, early exits from the WSOP have managed to travel from the WSOP venue to the Olympic Summer Festival venue and the same is expected this time around. You can also not rule out the probability of The Big One for One Drop – $1,000,000 No-Limit Hold’em participants quickly making their way to the Olympic Summer Festival once the WSOP comes to a close. As expected, this year’s tournament will feature a number of events including € 150 + 15 No Limit Hold’em – Terminator and the € 180 + 20 No Limit Hold’em Main Even.
European Poker Series of SPA
From August 8th to 19th, the European Poker Series of SPA will be in full gear. The tournament attracts both professionals and amateurs, therefore, it’s regarded as one of the best in Europe. Poker players looking to participate at the tournament need to register a bit early as entrants may increase towards the start of the tournament. Some of the top events at the European Poker Series of SPA include € 180 + 19 No Limit Hold’em, € 300 + 30 No Limit Hold’em, 1,100 + 100 No Limit Hold’em, € 500 + 50 No Limit Hold’em, and the € 720 + 80 Pot Limit Omaha.
