Take a look inside one of the most famous and biggest tournaments in poker, the World Series of Poker. The tournament is held annually for more than 30 years. The tournament began in 1970, when Benny Binion invited seven poker players for a single tournament to Horseshoe Casino. The players were the best known and most skilled at the time. Since then, the tournament is held annually.
In 2005, the Caesars Entertainment took over sponsorship. What started at a seven players tournament, has now grown into tournament with more than 500 initial entrants every year. The entrants begin the five day tournament to the point where only nine players remain, and they play at a single, final table.
The tournament is held in October and November in the past years, depending on the American presidential campaign at the time.
The winner of the tournament receives bracelet for his win, and a monetary prize that depends on the number of entrants at the tournament.
The documentary taking you inside the tournament was filmed in 1999.
