What does WSOP stand for?

World Series of Poker

WSOP is an acronym that’s thrown around in poker circles, and it stands for World Series of Poker. This is a big deal in the poker world, attracting well over 100,000 players every year to Paradise, Nevada for a series of high-stakes games.

The WSOP started back in 1970, when a mere seven players were invited to participate at Binion’s Horseshoe. It’s grown a lot since then, and now includes more than 101 tournaments that anyone can join, as long as they have the cash to pony up.

One of the highlights of the WSOP is the Main Event. To get into this game, you’ll need to drop a cool $10,000. But it’s worth it, because this is a multi-day no-limit Texas Hold ’em game. If you manage to beat out all the other players, you’ll walk away with the unofficial title of Poker World Champion for that year.
