$10 Million Up For Grabs For 2014 Winner
Who wants to be a millionaire? Perhaps $10m would suit you a little bit better? Well the millionaire maker is back again this year & we are nearly ready for Showtime and the new glittering prize for this year's World Series of Poker Champion. Yes, you read that right. This year's main event champ will walk away with an eight figure sum, a cool $10m, which will be the first time since 2006.
This 65 event series unfolds once again as it has since 1970 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The proceedings get underway in the last week of May 2014 and continue through till the end of the second week in July 2014. Starting on July 5th, there will be three starting flights. This qualifying period will determine the November Nine. As occurred in 2013, the players will begin with 30,000 chips. Each day they will play five two hour levels. As always with this annual event, it will be beamed live across the globe.
The Millionaire Maker was introduced in 2013 and will again return for 2014 with the first of two flights beginning on 31st May. This is a $1500 buy-in contest and the first place winner will pick up the $1 million prize on offer.
Ty Stewart executive director of the WSOP enthusiastically expects this to be their best year to date with total prize money for the tournament to reach the $200m mark. The bar has been raised with increased expansion of varied events including a $1500 buy-in dealer's choice event. Here the players have a choice of 16 games from which to choose from. Also for 2014, the tournament staff have been busy adding in variations on existing game themes as with the standard no limit events which seemingly has met with the approval of many of the participating professionals.
It would appear a great amount of effort has been put into the 2014 tournament. Not only has a lot gone into providing players with all the little refinements in terms of what one would expect in an ultimate experience, but because of it's all encompassing nature, it takes into account players of all levels, so from this aspect you could say all men and women are equal, that is until they start playing of course.
