World Series of Poker Kicks Off Today
By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer
Tuesday, the 42nd Annual World Series of Poker will begin, and players from around the globe will make their way to the Mecca of poker, Las Vegas, Nevada.
We here on the Rakeback.com News Team will be here to cover it for you from start to finish. Play will kick off today with the annual Casino Employees tournament and the $25K heads-up tournament, which will be limited to just 256 players.
After 57 events the World Series of Poker will end with the Main Event which will begin on Thursday, July 7th. In the mean time there will be plenty of drama, stories and heartbreak.
If you’re looking for a great place to grab a bite between tournaments, special guest columnist CKBWoP has compiled an extensive list that was so expansive that we had to post it across three different articles.

Rakeback.com Poker News Senior Writer Scott Carlson has an extensive list of the other tournaments taking place around Las Vegas during the WSOP. There’s plenty of action around town during this time of year, and you can read all about it here.
If you plan on coming to Las Vegas for any part of the World Series of Poker, we wish you the best. If you’re just looking to follow the action from the comfort of your home, we’ll be with you to provide coverage of all the action.
And lastly, if you’re playing Event 17 – $1,500 HORSE, I apologize for any bad-beats, suckouts, etc. that I may inflict upon you while I play my first-ever WSOP event. I’m a donkey and I plan using that to my advantage. That’s how it works, right?
