Rio Las Vegas

We are now literally just hours away from the start of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event, the event that is the pinnacle of all poker events. Despite that, we still have a couple more events to finish up tomorrow and we did have another couple of bracelets handed out today as well.

This event stretched into an extra day due to a tense heads up session that could not be completed on Day 3 and was the first event today to reveal a winner.
