The World Series of Poker is one of the world’s most popular poker tournaments. The final table and other events will be televised live on ESPN2. Various satellite events will be televised online through PokerGO. The World Series of Poker Circuit is a satellite series held at Harrah’s-owned properties in the United States. The top twenty qualifying players from circuit events were eligible for the 2005 Tournament of Champions. In addition, the final table of the 2005 Main Event was included, as were nine bracelet winners.
In 2007, Dan Colman won the $15 million Main Event, outlasting a lackluster final table. Phillip Hilm, who had been chip leader heading into the final table, busted in fifteen hands, becoming the first player to go bust in final-table history. After this turn of events, Hilm quit poker for years and sold real estate. However, he recently came back to play poker. Despite the controversy over the tournament, the event’s success has spurred several new players to try their luck at the World Series of Poker.

The World Series of Poker has changed the face of poker for the better. In 2004, it featured 32 preliminary events and seven final events. Among the bracelet winners were Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Annie Duke, and Antonio Esfandiari. These players were once thought to be out of reach for many amateur players. In 2006, a woman, aged 22, from Norway, won the Main Event and walked away with $10 million.
The popularity of the tournament has expanded exponentially since the first WSOP. In 1999, the Main Event featured six hundred thirty-one entrants, making it the largest live tournament in history. ESPN also provided hole card cameras for the coverage of the Main Event. In 2002, the WSOP Main Event became a 24-event series, with over 500 participants. The next year, the World Series of Poker will welcome as many as 6650 players, which will make it the largest poker tournament in history.
