The World Series of Poker continues to attract the best poker players in the world and in the richest sporting event on the planet will be no different in 2014.

The WSOP is the most famous series of poker tournaments the world has ever seen and since Benny Binion invited six of the best poker players on the planet to play with him at the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas in 1970, the tournament has never looked back.

Players may qualify through the ranking system for a nationally televised Circuit championship bracelet event with a $1 million prize and victory in the series guarantees a place at the top table in the poker community.

The winner of each event receives a World Series of Poker bracelet and a monetary prize based on the number of entrants and buy-in amounts. Over the years, the tournament has grown in both the number of events and in the number of participants. Each year, the WSOP culminates with the $10,000 no-limit hold'em "Main Event," which, since 2004, has attracted entrants numbering in the thousands. The victor receives a multi-million dollar cash prize and a bracelet, which has become the most coveted award a poker player can win. The winner of the World Series of Poker Main Event is considered to be the World Champion of Poker.
