WSOP: The World Series Of Poker

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010

The world series of poker is the ultimate challenge out there for both internet and real poker rooms players. The truth is that if you enter the WSOP you stand a chance to win lots and lots of money. But that is not the only reason. Just the fact that you made it there is a huge realization both for you as a player and for you as a person. If you want to really be a part of the poker world then WSOP is the place to start. With all the media attention you will be getting and with all the famous people that are going to be around you, you will get a chance to real show your skills and to improve them greatly since you will be surrounded only by the best of the best. Being in the heart of all these events and agitation is a quite exciting and fun thing to do in your poker career.

Nowadays, because of the satellite tournaments that are played in order to gain entrance to the WSOP, you can easily enter the world series of poker with a limited bankroll. The entrance fee for some of these tournaments can be as low as $40 and with that kind of money you can get to play in the end for over $2.000.000. (the tax required to enter the WSOP can be paid from the money won in the qualifying satellite tournament, so you will really only invest $40).

Still, when looking at it mathematically we realize that even entering the WSOP is a very lucky situation and that a many people lose a lot of money trying to enter it and even when they do they just lose instantly their $10.000 bankroll.

The WSOP is opened for every person over 21 years old and it can be won even by a skilled player no one has heard about that comes from a satellite tournament. This happened in 2003 when such a player won about $2,500,000 investing just the $ 40 entrance fee to the satellite tournament.

Young talents arise every year and ore and more players take part in the WSOP as years pass. You have a chance of winning even this great tournament if you have studied enough, if you learn every day new things and practice every day your strategies and approaches and if you manage to keep an overall good attitude so you can play your best hands and strategies.
