(Las Vegas, NV) — The World Series of Poker competition is red-hot, as the $10,000 buy-in main event continues this weekend. Nearly 900 top players began dealing and bluffing yesterday, and that field will be cut down considerably by Sunday. It includes both experienced poker players with past wins, and rookies with a streak of luck. But only nine players will remain standing July 19th. Those lucky nine will return to the Rio hotel this November, for a two-day event that will determine this year’s World Series of Poker champion.
