After being held for the first time in 2007 and for the next six years, the WSOP Europe was not held in 2014 as the WSOP decided to implement a “rotational” schedule with the WSOP Asia Pacific. The WSOP APAC was held last year, and will not be contested this year, while the WSOPE will take place.
Berlin is a natural selection for the WSOP as the host of its European showcase, the European Poker Tour.
