World Championship Series of Poker (WSOP) Champions list.
The World Series Of Poker (WSOP.com) has long defined the world champion of poker through an annual epic multi-day hold-em poker tournament. What is unique about this tournament is that anyone (21 or over) can enter if they are willing to part with the very pricey entrance fee. Some do manage to circumvent the hefty entrance fee, which fuels the largest prize pool in poker, by winning satellite tournaments to earn their seat at the starting table, as well. For the winner, the rewards are just as epic, a million dollar bracelet, a photo on the winners wall and millions in cash. The event grows every year.
The WSOP poker championship tournament is the most prestigious among many such championship tournaments, and the common thread is that each tournament offers a custom designed gold tournament championship bracelet as the winner's trophy, which is the most coveted bracelet in all the world. This is what Bracelet Poker is all about, winning poker championships.
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is the largest, richest and most prestigious poker event in the world, awarding millions of dollars in prize money along with that custom gold and jewel encrusted world poker champion bracelet, globally recognized as the poker gaming industry's top prize.
The series dates back to 1970, when Benny Binion invited seven of the best-known poker players (determined to be the top seven best poker platers in the USA) to the Horseshoe Casino for a single tournament. There was a designated start and stop time, and the winner was determined by a secret ballot, back then.

Will you be the next WSOP Champion on that list, this coming year?
This year the 51st Annual WSOP was set to run from May 26 to July 15, 2020 at Caesar's Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, but the Covid-19 Pandemic which has already taken over 100,000 US lives has screwed that all up. Ceasar's is closed and I don't know what's going on. Maybe it's not a good idea to have it this year. I'll post here if I find that the format changes or it gets rescheduled, if I can find anything out.
