48th Annual World Series of Poker starts in Las Vegas

With thousands of pokers flocking Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas for the 48th Annual World Series of Poker that started on 30th  May for a 54 days of play for 74 gold bracelet events and cash games and a prize amounting to a more than $200 million.

As of now it’s hard to predict the number of participants but as it seems all positive it could probably be around or more than the last year’s figure of 107,833.

The buy-ins for the events range from $333 to $111,111. Anybody older than 21 years of age can attend to watch the games for free.

A $565 event will be the first event of the series which would be a warm for the organizers as it’s for casino employees and the main event is set to begin on July 8.

The tournament would have clock rule, which is aimed at speeding up the game as this would force the habitual stallers to think and act quick.
