Hello and welcome to picturesque Cannes where in around two hours time we will be bringing you all the action from Event #4 of the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe, the €3,200 No Limit Hold'em Shootout.

The shootout is a new event for this year's WSOPE and should attract a whole host of big names and well-known faces. For those of you not well versed in the shootout format the tournament will be on nine handed tables and but only the winner of each table will progress to the next round, making the event similar to a massive sit 'n' go, a sit 'n' go that has a coveted gold WSOP bracelet up for grabs!

The tournament kicks off at 1700 CET and PokerNews will be here every step of the way bringing you the very best in live poker tournament updates.
