World Series of Poker 1970 - 2013
The annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) -- A series of live poker tournaments open to anyone 21 years of age or older -- Commences each year at the end of May with the first of over 60 gold bracelet events.
The annual poker extravaganza, which dates back to 1970, is televised exclusively on ESPN from the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and consists of a comprehensive slate of the game’s most popular variations.
The annual WSOP always concludes with the infamous $10,000 buy-in World Championship No-Limit Hold'em Main Event which begins play at the beginning of July and reaches its final table (nine players) nearly 2 weeks later at which time play will be halted. The famed tournament’s culmination will be held with the "November Nine" returning to play in November of the same year to play before a live audience with special primetime coverage from ESPN.
The landmark WSOP comes on the heels of a record year in 2008, when the WSOP generated the most entries ever (58,720) from the most countries ever (124) that competed for the largest prize pool ever ($180,774,427) while awarding 55 championship gold bracelets, globally recognized as the sport's top prize.
The biggest ever prize money taken home for one event was by Jamie Gold in 2006 when he won the main championship event and took home a cool 12 million dollars and the youngest ever player to win the WSOP main event was Joe Cada in 2009. PokerPages.com is proud to offer the results to all recent WSOPs as a part of our extensive tournament database.
