The World Series of Poker is halfway through the schedule and through 37 events attendance has picked up slightly. The WSOP awarded over $81 million so far with 61,616 overall entrants from 98 countries with a schedule of events live streamed exclusively on PokerGO.

“Players continue to respond favorably to our diverse offerings and industry-leading prize pools,” said Ty Stewart, WSOP executive director. “We believe we’ve found the right mix of price points and game variants to make a trip the Rio in Las Vegas a must annually for anyone who loves the game of poker. There’s still plenty of time this year too, as we still have a month of World Series of Poker play remaining with bracelet event buy-ins as low as $365.”

All trends and schedule expectations predict that this WSOP will be the largest in terms of participants and prize pools in the WSOP’s history.
