World Series Of Poker To Remain In Rio

10/04/2019

The World Series Of Poker (WSOP) has confirmed that it will remain in the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino for another year. This has long been the location of the most anticipated and viewed poker tournament of the year, and the organizers of the WSOP want to keep it right where it is for 2020.

Speculation had been swirling that the WSOP may move locations due to the fact that Caesars Entertainment was sold to Eldorado Resorts. The thought was that the new owners might want to move the tournament to a different property, but that has turned out to not be the case. Rather, it is pretty clear from the response of poker fans all around the world that the place that they want the tournament to be held is clearly the Rio.

At this moment it seems incredibly likely that the 2021 WSOP tournament will remain in the same location as well. This is not officially confirmed as of this moment, but it does appear incredibly likely to be the case.

This is all big news for those who have dreams of getting their own seat at the most prestigious poker tournament in the world. Many seats to the WSOP tournament are awarded to players who are skilled enough to win satellite tournaments that earn them a spot at the table to compete in the WSOP. Many of those tournaments are played online, and that is critical because it gives more players than ever an opportunity to get in on the action.

The WSOP continues to evolve and expand, and it has not taken the beating that some feared back in 2010 when the Federal government seized a number of the most popular online poker domains. That was a very scary moment for the poker community, but it ultimately only lowered the number of attendees to the WSOP tournament in the short run. The tournament is now stronger than ever say many who are intimately involved with it.

Fresh faces continue to saddle up to the table as a variety of states have now fully legalized online poker within their borders. That is very important because it means that a whole new generation of players will have a crack at learning how to play the game and advancing up the ranks. This could be a big deal for the entire poker community at large as it seeks to attract new players every step of the way.
