(Las   Vegas, NV)  —  Poker’s richest event is underway in Las Vegas.  Thousands of players from more than 100 countries have entered the annual World Series of Poker tournament.  It could be the richest in the event’s 43-year history.

Last year’s winner, Germany’s Pius Heinz, took home more than $8.7-million.

The WSOP ends its first phase July 16th, when nine players remain.  They will return to the Rio hotel for the championship round in October.
