40th

There are now just two weeks to go until the start of the 40th annual World Series of Poker 2009.  57 events will be played from the 26th May - 3rd July at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas.  The $10,000 buy in championship main event is expected to attract a larger field than ever before especially with so many online poker rooms holding satellites and promotions.  Stars are born from this event with life changing prizes on offer, as seen with previous winners like Chris MoneyMaker and Greg Raymer who won this event after winning a seat through online poker site Poker Stars. This gave so many people the belief that any one can win this event and not just the professional elite.  As like last year the final table of this event will be held on the 10th November.

Most of the well known professional poker players will be in Las Vegas with some of them entering all 57 events.  Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson all have the record with most bracelets won by one player, each having 11 and they will be trying to be the first to reach a record breaking number 12.

A big change introduced to this year’s WSOP  is the bracelet award ceremony.  Most events are finished in the early hours of the morning so organisers have decided to make the award ceremony in the afternoon.  This will mean more people will be there to congratulate each winner giving more of an atmosphere.  In previous years there were sometimes only a few people left around in the early hours of the morning to acknowledge the winner in the ceremony.

Here is a list of all 57 events that will take place.
