Andersson, Gleissner, and Nass Take Down Late WSOP Europe Bracelets

A Look At Three Bracelet Winners Crowned During The Final Days Of This Year's WSOPE At King's Resort Rozvadov


The 14th running of the World Series of Poker Europe came to an end midway through November of 2023. The festival featured 15 gold bracelet events from Oct. 25 – Nov. 15, with over €15 million in guaranteed prize money up for grabs. More than 13,500 total entries were made throughout the series, resulting in $21,431,194 in total cash paid out.

This marked the sixth time that the WSOPE was held at King’s Resort Rozvadov in the Czech Republic. Below is a look at the results from three of the latest events to wrap up during the final days of the festival, which was capped off by the record-setting main event.

€1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty Turbo €300K GTD

Joakim AnderssonSweden’s Joakim Andersson bested a 570-entry field in the €1,100 turbo bounty hunter event. Andersson walked away with his first bracelet and $85,171 from the main prize pool.

This was the second-largest score yet for Andersson, trailing only the $271,903 he earned as the third-place finisher in a $3,200 buy-in event at the 2020 WPT World Online Championships.

French bracelet winner Jonathan Pastore came within a few spots of securing his second but ended up finishing fourth for $22,552.

Maurice NassThe last event on the schedule was appropriately dubbed the ‘Closer’. The €550 buy-in tournament had drawn 628 entries by the end of registration, good for a $319,002 prize pool. The largest share of that money was paid out to another German player: Maurice Nass.

This was only the third recorded score for Nass, with his two previous cashes being for just shy of $6,000 total. This win was good for $63,600 and his first gold bracelet.

Roland Israelashvili finished eighth for $7,000. This was the 675th recorded tournament cash of his career, with 226 coming in WSOP events.
