02.102018A Busy October for Poker
October is stuck between a rock and a hard place where gambling is concerned. It’s before Christmas and after summer. It has missed the excitement of the summer soccer tournaments and the start of the NFL season, and it’s also a slow time for tennis, rugby, and many other sports.
But there is some reprieve with the poker schedule, as things start to heat up around this time and there are some big events planned for October 2018.
The World Series of Poker International Circuit continues this month with a few big stops. WSOP Brazil will come to a close on the 2nd, followed by WSOP Czech Republic and WSOP St Louis on the 8th, but on October 9th it’s the turn of WSOP Europe, which takes place in the Czech Republic and is currently one of the biggest events on the continent.
There are also WSOP Circuit events in Oklahoma and Nevada later on in the month.
World Poker Tour
Arguably the second biggest poker event in the world after the WSOP, the WTP has some big stops in October. On October 4th WPT Vietnam will play its final day, followed by the WPT Johannesburg, San Diego, Pittsburgh and Montreal. The latter of these is likely going to be the biggest and best, so clear your schedule from the 21st of October to the 4th of November.
Other Big Events
The Fall Poker Classic is one of the most underrated tournaments of the month, taking place in San Jose, California, and this month also sees the conclusion of the Live Millions PartyPoker event in Nottingham, England. If you miss that one then get yourself down to Luton for a stop of the GUKPT, a tournament that is growing year on year and attracting more and more big names.
The Players Championship in Maryland, MSPT in Battle Creek, and October Monster Stacks in New Jersey are also big tournaments that should attract locals as well as global pros, so mark these onto your calendar.
