"Poker is set to explode in Europe, and players are hungry for information," said Dan Jacobs, Publisher. "Poker Pro Europe will capture the drama and the fun of European poker, both in cardrooms and on the growing European tournament circuit. If it is happening on the European poker scene, you will find it in Poker Pro Europe."
Poker Pro Europe will debut in September and be available at more than 8,000 European retail outlets including W.H. Smith, One-Stop Stores, Rippleglen, Balfours, B2, Budgens, Alldays, Spar, Mills, and GT News. In addition, Poker Pro Europe will be available at casinos and cardrooms in English-speaking Europe.
"Poker Pro Europe will hit the market with the largest initial circulation out of all the poker magazines available at this time in the UK," said Publisher, Dan Jacobs. Poker Pro Vice President Will Jordan and Editor-in-Chief John "Johnny Quads" Wenzel will oversee the launch, with the help of new staff from the United Kingdom.
"European players are a growing force in the poker world," Wenzel said. "The new magazine will be all about them and the European poker lifestyle. The next generation of poker champions will come from Poker Pro Europe readers."
