2021 WSOP Becomes The Third Largest Poker Tournament Series In History


The 52nd annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) recently concluded at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The biggest poker event in the world returned to its live format this year after the COVID-19 restrictions last year. The event received a massive response from poker players from all over the world, who gathered at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and competed for the coveted WSOP gold bracelets. 

The 2021 WSOP edition which began on 30th September, drew its curtains on 23rd November 2021. The event included 88 live bracelet events featuring buy-ins from $400 to $2,50,000. Additionally, the series also included online bracelet events. After 54 days of back-to-back tournaments, nearly 100 gold bracelets were claimed by the respective winners. 

The WSOP officials are yet to announce the exact figures of the series, however, PokerNews reports suggest that the series received over 1,27,245 entrants across all events and gave out a total of $23,79,86,230 million in prize money.

When compared to the 2019 WSOP live events, i.e., the pre-pandemic events, the overall participation saw a dip this year. The entry-field size reportedly witnessed a drop of 20-40% in overall participation. In spite of all the COVID-19, cancellation fears, and several other challenges, the live events became the third-largest poker series in terms of the prize money awarded. In terms of turnout, the 2021 WSOP was the second-biggest poker series in history.

The WSOP organisers have reportedly made a profit of $21.2 million across the entire 88 live bracelet events. However, official figures from the officials are awaited. The 53rd annual WSOP events will be held between May and June 2022, the officials had earlier announced.
