The World Series of Poker is more than just a festival. This is where emotion runs alongside money, and in some cases, even further. Because when you think about it, there is certainly no place or moment in the world of poker that is less profitable on the wallet. Like There’s no better place than Las Vegas during the WSOP.
It’s up for debate, just look at the faces of those who won the bracelets. Hugs from those off the rail, as happened recently when Julio Belluscio, better known as Bartolo, won a bracelet. But you don’t have to go that far.

However, hitting the first goal means much more than $5,000. Not to mention you don’t like being alone.
That’s what happened to the Porterfields, David and Amanda, who made no secret of their excitement when the bubble burst. those who are still alive.
