Rio Hotel & Casino
It’s hard to believe that when the World Series of Poker began back in 1970, there were fewer than 50 poker tables in the entire city of Las Vegas. There were only 70 poker tables in the whole state of Nevada. Binion’s Horseshoe, the host casino, did not even have a poker room. The contest that would come to decide poker’s first world champion was held inside an alcove about the size of an ordinary hotel room. Thirty or so gamblers shoehorned themselves around a few poker tables. They didn’t know it at the time, but they were making poker history.
The WSOP is a month event happen in the great city of Las Vegas, Nev. They cover every poker style during the month ranging in buy-ins from $1000 - to the $50K horse championship that could be said to gather the best all around poker player in the world! So, this year gonna be the 28th World Series of Poker at the Rio Hotel & Casino. Just like the years before, there will be 6000+ paricipants in the $10k buy-in Main Event no Limit Holdem' tournament.
