WSOP Las Vegas 2021

Following a two-year hiatus, 6,650 players from all over the world descended on the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for the iconic 52nd annual World Series of Poker Main Event.

The Main Event is known for its large payouts, with each player who makes it to the final table guaranteed at least $1,000,000 and the first-place world winner taking home $8,000,000.
