Note: This piece coved the 2015 WSOP - see this item in our poker news section for details of what is available in 2016!
Doyle Brunson once said that “Texas Hold’em is the Cadillac of poker”, if this is true then the World Series Of Poker is the Cadillac of poker tournaments. Calling the WSOP a tournament is underselling it. It is a festival. The biggest showcase of poker there has ever been.
Built around the now infamous $10k Main Event the sheer number of tournaments that now run in Las Vegas during the WSOP is amazing. They cover every format of poker you could think of and attract massive fields leading to huge prizes.
Last year the Main Event had a huge first prize of $10,000,000. Yes, that’s 10 million dollars.
Check out the full schedule for the 46th WSOP starting on the 27th of May here: http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/
