The names of the entrants for the two starting days in the WSOP Europe No-Limit Hold'Em Championship -- spread out over three London Clubs International casinos in the heart of London -- reads like a "Who's Who" of poker aristocracy:

Brunson (three of them), Chan, Cunningham, Ferguson, Forrest, Greenstein, Gordon, Harman, Hellmuth, Lederer, Lindgren, Lisandro, Negreanu, Raymer, Nguyen -- first names all known to avid poker fans around the globe.

They were joined by scores of lesser-known but accomplished players, all eager to outlast one of the strongest fields in European poker history and take home one of the first three WSOP bracelets ever awarded outside the United States.

European players dominated the first two events, with Thomas Bihl of Germany winning the HORSE tournament and Dario Alioto of Italy capturing the Pot-Limit Omaha crown.

The WSOP Europe Main Event is being played at three casinos operated by London Clubs International - Fifty on St. James Street, The Casino at the Empire on Leicester Square and The Sportsman at Marble Arch.
