The World Series of Poker is back and has returned to the Las Vegas Hilton. This will be the fifth year for the tournament, this time being played on the same day as the World Series of Poker Main Event. So it is only fitting that there will be a change in format this year. For the first time in history, players will be competing for a grand prize in which could top $450,000. For those who think that a seven hundred dollar prize is a lot of money, consider the prize pool of the Big One last year – the sixth largest purse ever paid at a poker tournament. Now, with only three decks of cards instead of the traditional nine, these tournaments are offering a very nice opportunity for the super wealthy to reach the promised land of poker riches.
If you are not familiar with the Main Event, there are two different rounds. First, the players will play a series of hands over the course of four to six hours, playing a tournament style where they will be trying to win a specific pot or series of pots. From here, the winner will move on to the second tournament of the day. The second tournament consists of the second round of three tournament style hands.
If you win the game, you will be the 2020 World Series of Poker Winner. Of course, like with any poker tournament, there are also some poker talk contenders for this title. There are a lot of rumors floating around about who the world series of poker winner is going to be. I think you may be interested to know that the winner of the main event is going to be one of three players – there will be a winner of the four table competition and a winner of the non-tournament. As I mentioned before, the first two players to get a set of twelve in a tournament will be considered winners of the tournament. All of the money won from the winners of the tournament and the non-tournament games will all go to the winner of the world series of poker tournament. Of course, there is more to this than that.
