The World Series of Poker (WSOP)
Home of the poker tournaments, the World Series of Poker has been running for over a century now. No other event can be considered revolutionary like theretrospective of a single event, the ultimate scale of competition, the centerpiece of any tournament, and theinnacle of agony. The event has become a metaphor for the promotion of poker as a sport, one that not only rewards the best players, but also the ones who get unlucky and Able to rise to the top.
The reigning paradigm of the poker event is the satellite-qualifier structure, where players have to earn their way in, both literally and conceptually. Only two players are allowed toiliify, and the winner advancesto the thinly-specced 12th position. Last year’s winner took home roughly $938,000. The winner this year is either Phil Hellmuth or Daniel Negreanu, whichever one wins the main event and receives a figure several million dollars.
The large figure commissions the players to enter the tournament, and the requirement increases every year. Last year’s winner took home a whopping $8,800,000. The requirements are higher this year, and a first-place win would increase that by about $1.2 million. That would bring the heads-up match between Phil Hellmuth and Men “The Venum” Rotherham to an expensive showdown.
The main event is no pushover, either. With the vastly improved tournament format and the star status of some of its players (i.e. Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, and Men “The Venum” Rotherham), the final table could turn into a rout.

That moment was immortalized in the 1998 movie “21,” which played the moment when no one had enough of poker to beat the man who won the most prestigious event in the land.
