The 46th World Series of Poker gets underway today at the Rio with events running through July 14th and then of course the final main event table in November. This year’s event will have 68 different events with buy in’s ranging in different amounts from $565 for the May 29th debut of Colossus to $111,111. Even though the popularity of poker may have dropped from its peak as the television shows have mostly gone away the WSOP is always extremely popular and, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a huge amount of entrant’s maybe the most ever. If you are heading to the event and, not driving or taking a taxi the shuttle to the next door Gold Coast might be an option as the Rio shuttle is likely to be busy.
