World Series of Poker (WSOP)
Las Vegas is the hub of everything casino; little wonder it is also the home of the World Series of Poker (WSOP). The WSOP is a sequence of poker tournaments that is held yearly in Las Vegas. The event is regularly supported by Caesars Entertainment Corporation, formerly known as Harrah’s Entertainment.
For professionals in the world of gambling, the WSOP is a popular event that is worth shelving every other thing to watch. Are you interested in learning more about this global event? Do you want to know all the actions that have taken place during the event even before you started playing poker? Then go ahead and read all about the WSOP in this article.
General Overview of World Series of Poker (WSOP)
Dated back to the 70s, the WSOP was started by Benny Binion when he invited a number of the best known poker players for a tournament at the Horseshoe Casino. The tournament had a start time and a stop time. At the time, the winner was decided upon through a secret ballot that contains the names of the seven players that were involved in the tournament. Winners at each event get monetary prizes and WSOP Bracelets.
The monetary prize is dependent on the number of participants at the event and the amounts of the buy-ins. Over the years WSOP has become very popular within the poker community and the world at large. The event has grown in the huge number of participants and of course, in the number of events. Every year, the World Series of Poker tournament ends with the Main Event known as the $10,000 no-limit hold’em. This main event regularly draws thousands of participants from all over the world. The winner of the main event gets the most coveted WSOP bracelet and a whopping multi-million dollar cash prize. The winner of the WSOP Main Event is also regarded as the World Champion of Poker.
As at the end of 2017, the World Series of Poker consists of seventy four different events featuring many major poker variations. For some years now, more than half of the total events at the WSOP are variations of Texas hold’em. The events usually take place in the course of a day or successive days in the month of June and July, although from 2008, the final table of the Main Event has been delayed till November. For instance, in 2012 and 2016, the final tables of the Main Event started in October due to the presidential election of the United States. However, by May of 2017, the WSOP has returned to the initial date of the culmination of the Main Event and crowning of the winner which is the month of July.
Highlights of WSOP
Participants at the World Series of Poker have grown enormously on a yearly basis from year 2000 through to 2006. After the 2006 event, there was a new gambling legislation online that limits the number of qualifier for the event. This led to a reduction in the number of participants in 2007 but in 2008, there was an increase in the number of entrants at the event. In the year 2000, a total of 4,780 participants came for the various events at the WSOP. In 2005, the number grew to more than 23,000 participants. In 2006, the event witnessed a huge growth in participants from 839 entrants in the main event in 2003 to a total of 8,773 in the year 2006. Within the next eleven years, the number has fluctuated between 6,300 to 7,200 participants.
Highlights of winnings at the WSOP
There are many poker professionals who have distinguished themselves from the rest at the WSOP events. These players have made a name for themselves in the industry and there is no way WSOP will be talked about that their names will not be mentioned. Here, we will look at the highlights of professional poker players who have made history at the World Series of Poker over a period of time.
Phil Hellmuth holds the most winnings and the highest number of bracelets at the WSOP events. He has won a total of 15 bracelets over the course of the years. Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, and Johnny Chan came second in the hierarchy of the most celebrated winners at the event with a total of ten bracelets each at different events. Crandell Addington is also the only player that has ever placed in the top ten players of the WSOP Main Event at eight different times. It is important to point out that this happened in earlier years when the field of poker was still very small compared to what it is today.
The poker bracelet winners who have also attain fame in other fields include Steve Albini, the American musician and record producer, Jennifer Tilly, the American actress, Jan Vang Sorensen, the Danish soccer player, and Patrick Bruel, the French singer and actor. Recently, there have been other non-bracelet WSOP events that have taken place. Two of the most prominent events are Ante Up for Africa, and World Series of Rock Paper Scissors.
Four different professional players who have won the WSOP Main Event in multiple times in the course of their career are highlighted below.
- Johnny Moss – 1970, 1971, and 1974
- Doyle Brunson – 1976 and 1977
- Stu Ungar – 1980, 1981, and 1997
- Johnny Chan – 1987 and 1988
Main Event of the WSOP
The Main Event of the World Series of Poker has always been the popular $10,000 no-limit Texas Hold’em buy-in tournament. At the inaugural event of WSOP in 1970, the winner was determined by a secret ballot so there was no special event tournament at the time. In 1971, the buy-in tournament was placed at $5,000. However, from 1972, the buy-in of the Main Event has been $10,000 no-limit Texas Hold’em and has remained the same over time.
Winners at the main event of the WSOP enjoy prominence in addition to the biggest cash prize and a gold bracelet they receive at the end of the event. They also have their pictures featured in the Binion’s Gallery of Champions. In addition to this, any winner of the Main Event of WSOP is automatically crowned the World Champion of Poker. There has been a lot of criticism following the crowning of winners of the event as world champion simply because many are of the opinion that the no-limit hold’em is not the perfect game for deciding a poker champion.
Daniel Negreanu in 2002 requested that the Main Event be switched to pot-limit hold’em with the background fact that pot-limit involved a more comprehensive and complete set of skills in poker than the no-limit variant. Of course, this request was never granted and Negreanu himself admitted that a change such as this may never be possible. After the $50,000 buy-in HORSE Poker Players Championship event got added to the WSOP, many top professional poker players, including Daniel Negreanu, agreed that the tournament event is definitely the ultimate determiner of the world poker champion.
The $50,000 buy-in tournament, which is five times bigger than the regular buy-in at the WSOP Main Event, has become a deterrent for proletarians from playing at the event. It is crucial to point out that the variation of games available at the $50,000 buy-in tournament entails a wider knowledge of poker game.
In 2006, the first $50,000 buy-in event was won by professional poker player, Chip Reese. The event was performed as HORSE tournament. In 2010, the event was changed to an ‘8-game’ format which adds 2-7 triple draw, and no-limit hold’em pot-limit Omaha to the mix. At this point, the tournament was changed to The Poker Players Championship. Michael Mizrachi won the first edition of the newly revamped tournament. After the death of Chip Reese in December of 2007, the winner of the event also gets the ‘Chip Reese Memorial Trophy’ in addition to the prize money and the bracelet.
Memorable Events at WSOP Main Events
There have been various memorable events at the main events of World Series of Poker. Top among these events are highlighted as follows:
- Jack Straus Comeback Win: In 1982, Jack Straus had an emotional comeback win after he discovered that he still had a single $500 chip when he believed he was already out of the tournament. It was indeed a memorable win for Straus at the event.
- Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer moments: Both players qualified for the WSOP Main Event at PokerStars online card room through satellite tournaments in 2003 and 2004 respectively. Interestingly, they both won at the events.
- Jerry Yang Moment: Yang won the Main Event tournament in 2007 and he had only been playing at poker for two years before his resounding victory. He won the space to play at the Main Event tournament at a $225 buy-in satellite tournament at the Pechanga Resort and Casino, California.
- The culmination of the 1988 WSOP Main Event featured in the movie, Rounders.

Records of Players at World Series of Poker
Since World Series of Poker started in 1970, Johnny Moss and Stu Ungar are the only poker players who have won at the WSOP Main Event three different times. It is essential to point out that the first victory of Johnny Moss was based on an election and not on his performance at the event. However, if his first win, which is by vote, is to be counted, Moss, Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, and Stu Ungar are the only poker players to have won the WSOP Main Event repeatedly in consecutive years.
Phil Hellmuth has the highest record at the WSOP events including most WSOP final tables; most WSOP cashes; and most bracelets. Hellmuth is also the only poker player to have ever won the Main Events at both the WSOP Europe and WSOP.
With the growth of World Series of Poker in recent times, the prize pool of the main event has grown enormously to the point that winners at the event immediately becomes top money winners of WSOP as well as in poker tournament history. Prior to the July of 2012, the seven top players of all-time WSOP Earnings record entailed Main Event winners from the year 2005 to 2011. Among these champions, Jamie Gold had the highest prize pool in the history of the tournament.
However, Daniel Negreanu remains the all-time leader among the top seven players. Interestingly, Negreanu has not won any Main Event at WSOP. However, he was the winner at the inaugural WSOP Main Event at Asia Pacific in 2013. Following Negreanu on the leadership ladder are Daniel Colman and Antonio Esfandiari, both of whom have also not won at the Las Vegas Main Event.
WSOP Player of the Year
Starting from 2004, the player with the highest accumulated points during the WSOP gets an award for the Player of Year. As at the 2013 WSOP event, nine players have won a total of ten awards, with Negreanu winning on two different occasions. It is important to mention that only general events that allow all poker players to participate count towards the accumulated points. In other words, points from other events such as Casino Employee, Seniors, and Ladies events do not count towards the required points.
Also, from 2006 WSOP, the $50,000 buy-in HORSE competition does not have any effect on the result of the winner of the POY award. Prior to 2010, the Player of the Year award was based on the performance of players at the Las Vegas World Series of Poker but from 2011, the World Series of Poker Europe has also become an integral part of the Player of Year award points.
WSOP Poker Hall of Fame
Over the years, the World Series of Poker Hall of Fame has honoured forty two professional pokers. There are various criteria that are considered before a player can be honoured with this prestigious Hall of Fame. The decisive factor to qualify include having played for high stakes; competed against renowned top players; and consistently played well to have garnered the respect of other seasoned poker professionals. Non players are also honoured with the Poker Hall of Fame but to be selected, the individual must have had constructive and durable contributions to the general success and growth of Poker.
