WSOP MAIN EVENT 2013 – DAY 2

Day 2 of the World Series of Poker 2013 came to an end this morning with many UK players notching up some good stack sizes going into Day 3.

 

The World Series of Poker is the most highly anticipated Poker festival across the world, held at the Rio All Suite and Casino, Las Vegas. There is a European version of the event held in France. During its London residency we were fortunate enough to provide the tables. For some pictures please have a look around our poker page.

 

The buy-in for the event is $10,000 and has been ever since 1972, when Amarillo Slim beat a field of just 8 players in a winner takes all format, getting his hands on $80,000 having beat Walter ‘Puggy’ Pearson heads up for the title. This years event has drawn in 6,352 entries.

 

The 2013 WSOP sees the introduction of events where the buy-in is larger than the sum Amarillo Slim won for his 1st place back in 1972, notably the one drop high roller event with a buy-in of $111,111. However the main event has still remained a $10,000 buy-in event.

 

Despite the increase in buy-in prices and the various high-roller events, the prize everyone craves is to win the Main Event.  The fact it is no longer the highest buy-in event available does not draw away from the kudos and bragging rights of being named The WSOP Champion.

 

The Main event has not been won by a British player since 1990, when Mansour Matloubi beat a field of just 194 players to lay claim to the $895,000 1st prize. Here’s how a few of the Brits stack up for the beginning of Day 3
