 The Best of World Series Of Poker

 

Since the time the WSOP (World Series Of Poker) has been introduced, it has gained a lot of speculations and has a lot of players participating in the tournament and made a millions memories. People win, people lose. Whatever they end up doing, they definitely make memories. Here are some of the best moments of WSOP:

1. Chris Moneymaker winning.  
The World Series of Poker had a dramatic evolution when the Hole-Card Camera’s introduction changed the way people viewed its broadcast; and an online player who was never seen before, Chris Moneymaker gave everyone across the globe, a hope that they could win the WSOP. The win became so historic that Chris’s name became as known as Phil Hellmuth. The tournament indeed was a moment worth remembering in the history of Poker. This event took place in the year 2003.

2. Jack Strauss’s chip and chair
The man behind the phrase “Chip and a Chair” is none other than our beloved Jack Strauss who was eliminated from the 1982 World Series of Poker Main Event after he was seen giving up his entire stack and putting it in the middle of the table. Strauss, after that, won a lot of tournaments, hence, the Chip and a Chair legend was born. While every person has a different story to tell, the main thing we believe in is that he is a star and that he really deserves an applause!


3. Johnny Chan vs Erik Seidel
The most important event that took place in the history was when the 1988 World Series of Poker immortalized. The moment was shared between Johnny Chan and Erik Seidel and the hand became the most well-known hand in poker history. This game had everything a spectator or a player himself wants to see in a Poker game, from skilful play to the rollercoaster of emotions.


4. Phil the champ Hellmuth
The history wouldn’t have been created if Phil Hellmuth would have fallen to Johnny Chan in the Main Event. The event would’ve been like just any other game if Chan and Phil Hellmuth may have faded off into poker obscurity. Instead, the Poker Brat went racked-up 12 WSOP bracelets and he became one of the best self-promoters in the world of Poker.


5. Barbara Enright storming the game
The first and only woman to make it to the World Series of Poker Main Event final table is none other than Barbara Enright. Barbara’s achievement gave women around the world a chance to show that even they’re capable of playing Poker and that it’s not a men’s game alone. She’s till date, the most accomplished female player in WSOP’s history with three bracelets to her credit (two in the ladies tournament and one in an open event) to go along with her fifth-place finish in the 1995 WSOP Main Event.

The amount of fame and coverage that these events received over the internet and in the world of Poker is incomparable till date. Hence, these are just the best of all.
