The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the World Series of Poker (WSOP), and to celebrate this incredible milestone, they will be honoring players who have helped make the yearly poker festival the most prestigious and longest-running poker tournament that we all know today.
What are the best things you have seen or remember so far about the WSOP? Vote to win prizes!
The WSOP First Fifty Honors celebration is composed of 7 categories that everyone can vote on. By completing their survey, participants will be entered into a drawing to win a cool prize!
(2) VIP tickets to the First Fifty Honors Gala (estimated value of $300)
WSOP merchandise (estimated value of $75)
Another honor shall be bestowed in the same evening – the “50 Greatest Poker Players” will be announced, courtesy of a panel of poker industry and media members. Stated in the WSOP’s press release, “The only criteria to determine the 50 Greatest Poker Players is they must have played at least once at the WSOP. This list can be made up of cash game players, mixed games players, online players or tournament players.”
WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said, “From its founding by the Binion family in 1970, no one could have foreseen what the modern-day World Series of Poker has become. It’s only fitting we take an evening out from poker playing to celebrate the great game of poker and all the characters who have made a mark on the WSOP over the past five decades.”
Voting is open until June 15th and winners shall be announced at their inaugural First Fifty Honors Gala on June 29th, Saturday, 8pm in the Brasilia Room at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
this is another great story for WSOP and its nice that they will choose best hands,moves and everything in 50 years of WSOP!it nice that they give lot of prizes for votes,but would nice that they give for players outside of america and canada!some gift for other people would be good also!
Something new that we see here. What i liked the most was this voting : Most Likely to Succeed (Most WSOP Gold Bracelets 2020-2070) What kind of vote is this ? For real. Who even thought about it The prizes are good, so go ahead and cast your vote. You never know...
It's an extremely rare anniversary. 5 decades it's a lot of years and this should come with extra money from my point of view. This can only happen twice in a man's life. A young player can catch the next anniversary for over 50 years when the WSOP celebrates the centenary. Need more money for these games to make it a nice anniversary.
WOW Visiting Las Vegas to play the WSOP Main Event is the dream of every poker player. On Saturday, June 29, a gala to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the WSOP is scheduled, in which prizes will be awarded to players and VIPs. the industry. I would like to be part of that event and you? jajajja would be great
It will not be easy to choose in the different categories but I think that without any doubt there are three according to my criteria they should win their respective categories that are: - Most Impressive Main Event Win Chris Moneymaker: he managed to give the mediatic impulse to poker at the time I think that in poker we can talk about a before and after 2003 with the victory of Moneymaker.
Most Impressive Main Event Win (Single Year):
- Chris Moneymaker: for the same reason explained above.
Most Memorable WSOP TV Hand: - Connor Drinan vs. Cary Katz: this hand impressed me when it was completed on the river the flush was AA against AA and then two hearts on the flop, another one on the turn and another one on the river for me was the worst bad beat in the history of the WSOP.
I made my votes from this link and didnt take long time,maybe 30 seconds!on end you need to put your first and last name and mail address and that all!they will contact you if you win something!you must choose right link,first is for people from USA and canada,second for rest of world!
in connection with the anniversary this is a wonderful offer for all players for the whole world ... who can get a prize just by choosing the correct link .... this is quite an interesting offer that I certainly use ... everything happens in life so I hope that I lucky .... good luck to all BRM members
I would like to look better at the votes, but honestly i am not documented so well, as to offer the vote of the players. I do not want to make mistakes and to vote for a poker player who does not deserve this. If i do, then i will have to see their performance.
It is interesting to read this article and see so many situation where to vote, not all i knoe for example in most memorable poker hand in wsop history, so need to watch on YouTube and look what best. 50 years for tournament is good numbers
I can not vote because i'm in stand by when i want to vote. I'm not decided and i have to think and to offer something right from me. I do not want to play with the vote, even if my vote does not matter too much. It's a 50-year celebration and i have to respect it.
