WSOP Nevada online poker

In 1970, Las Vegas casino impresario Benny Binion set the World Series of Poker in motion. The annual festival was born 50 years ago when a group of famous gamblers were invited to play cards at Binion’s Horseshoe.

Five decades later the series is bigger than ever. There may not be an actual live series this summer, but the WSOP.com 50th Anniversary Series runs Sept. 8-27 with 50 events and $3 million guaranteed.
