April 2024: WSOP

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) may be the most famous tournament for this card game. The WSOP has been running since 2004, but most historians believe its origins can be traced back to a tournament held in Las Vegas in the 70s. The WSOP is currently a tournament with 101 events, the majority of which are Texas Holdem. The Main Event Final Table is watched live by millions of people every year.

The WSOP is a tournament that has included many expansions since 2005. It has been held in Europe since 2007 and in Africa since 2010. It also has international and online circuits, so you can join the WSOP online from anywhere in the world. The bracelet given to the tournament’s winner is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the poker world.

The amount of awards given to WSOP winners is also variable, but we can say that it is over 5 million dollars in general. 2022 WSOP winner Espen Jørstad was paid $10 million. WSOP rounds will continue throughout the year, and you can join both national and international bracelets in April. There are other tournaments you can try your luck at during April:
