The 2010 WSOP wiki

The 2010 WSOP wiki was the 41st annual World Series of Poker. It was held at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, and ran from May 28 to July 17. There were 57 bracelet events, which every poker player has a burning desire to win, due to the prestige of owning a WSOP bracelet.

However, the event that captures the public’s imagination is the WSOP main event. The tournament has a $10,000 buy in, with millions for the winner. This has turned many amateur players into overnight millionaires. The poker sites have cashed in on this phenomenon, offering many satellites into this tournament. They also offer sponsorship and additional money for players who wear the sites logo, while playing the main event. This increases their exposure and as a result they get more players on their site.

The $10,000 No Limit Texas Hold 'em Main Event, began on July 5 with the first of four starting days. Each player received a starting stack of 30,000 chips. The total number of entrants in the 2010 Main Event, was 7,319,with a prize pool of $68,798,600, with the winner receiving $8,944,138 for first place. This is an incredible amount of money and offers instant stardom in the poker world. The cash and the bracelet went to Jonathan Duhamel, a Canadian poker player.

The WSOP is the pinnacle of the poker calendar. Every player dreams of winning the main event and the prestige that goes with it.
