Poker Around the World

WSOP announce “Rematch” event

At the World Series of Poker this year there is to be a new event called the WSOP Rematches. There will be three match-ups in total with Chris Moneymaker taking on Sammy Farha in the first, Johnny Chan up against Phil Hellmuth in the second, and the third match has yet to be decided.

The WSOP Rematches will be repeats of the greatest heads-up battles ever seen in the main event, with players playing a best of thee format. The matches will be played on Thursday 2nd June with the Moneymaker/Farha game up first. In the first game of a best of three series the players will start with the exact same stacks they had when their heads-up battle commenced, and in the second game the stacks will be reversed so each player starts with the other players stack. If the scores are level after two games a third match will be played with each players starting with the same amount of chips.

When Moneymaker won the main event in 2003, poker really took off and that one game is attributed to the attention the game now receives. Moneymaker was a complete unknown when he won eight years ago and nobody gave him a hope of beating the experienced Farha. The second match will be a repeat of the 1989 duel between Johnny Chan and Phil Hellmuth, when Chan was going for a extraordinary three bracelets in a row at the main event. As you most probably know Hellmuth defeated him and won his first WSOP bracelet and in doing so became the youngest WSOP champion to date.

The third match has yet to be decided and fans will be able to vote for their favourite by visiting the WSOP facebook page, and matches include last years battle between Jonathan Duhamel and John Racener.

History of WSOP

With the summers greatest land based poker tournament upon us it’s only fair to remind ourselves of the History of the WSOP!

The idea of a World Series of Poker began in 1969 with an event called the Texas Gambling Reunion. It was as an invitational event sponsored by Tom Moore of San Antonio, Texas, and held at the Holiday Hotel and Casino in Reno. The set of tournaments that the World Series of Poker (WSOP) would evolve into was the brainchild of Las Vegas casino owner and poker player Benny Binion. In 1970, the first WSOP at Binion's Horseshoe took place as a series of cash games.

The first event hosted was via invitation to 6 of Binion poker playing friends, fast forward 12 years to 1982 where the tournament started to grow in popularity extending to 52 participants where after just 2 more years there were over 2,100 entrants in the entire series.  

The first World Series of Poker was not a freeze-out tournament, but rather an event with a set start and stop time, with the winner determined by secret ballot. In 1973, five-card stud was added as a second event. By 2007 the WSOP consisted of 55 side events.  While the traditional tournament wrapped up events within a few days, in 2008, a new tradition was introduced where the final table of Main Event will be played on a later date.

The winner of each event receives a World Series of Poker bracelet and a monetary prize based on the number of entrants and buy-in amounts. A World Series of Poker bracelet is considered the most coveted prize or trophy a poker player can win, with one from the Main Event revered above all others. Since 1976, a bracelet has been awarded to the winner of every event at the annual WSOP. WSOP victories prior to 1976 are also known as "bracelets". Most of the major poker variants are featured, though in recent years over half of the events have been variants of Texas hold 'em.

In 2004, Harrah's Entertainment purchased Binion's Horseshoe, kept the rights to the Horseshoe and World Series of Poker brands and announced that the 2005 Series events would be held at the Harrah's-owned Rio Hotel and Casino…and the rest as they would say is history.
