...is the biggest, baddest and best poker festival in the WORLD. It helps if you imagine Jeremy Clarkson saying that, in that deep gravelly voice and elongated WORLDDDDDD. The 2016 WSOP is in town - well it is if Las Vegas is your town - so first up, what is the World Series of Poker, or as it is more usually known, the WSOP?Its the poker equivalent of Wimbledon tennis, The Masters Golf, horse racings Royal Ascot or Cheltenham, snookers World Championship - all of which have a natural home. Same with the WSOP - it belongs in Las Vegas. There are mini-versions and copycat events which feed off the brand and take place in Europe and elsewhere, but they are simply not the real deal. Put simply, its the very pinnacle of poker, where the best meet the best. Its live poker, not online poker, and it takes place in Las Vegas every summer, and has done since way back in 1970.Initially, it was just one tournament, and it cost $10,000 to enter. In 1970, $10,000 was a lot of money. Come to think of it, that is a lot of money in 2016, too.Originally, there was just one tournament - the $10,000 biggie. These days, having expanded and grown over the years, it now comprises of 69 events, but the one that matters is the Main Event, or as it has become known, The Main.The 2016 WSOP commences on Wednesday 1st June, and by tradition, it starts in a very odd way - an event in which entry is restricted to casino employees. You may well wonder how that works, in the same way as we wonder how the snowplough driver gets to work after overnight snow, so youd perhaps be surprised to learn that last years renewal attracted a whopping 688 runners, and if recent trends are anything to go by, that will increase this year.Once that is out of the way, June 2nd sees the start of the well-named Colossus, which last year saw no less than 22,374 hopefuls all stumping up $565. Can you even begin to imagine the logistics of a 22,000 runner live poker event? For starters, how many chairs, tables, packs of cards, dealers and poker chips will they need?Lets look at that another way. When the dust settles, and one player remains, how many chips will he have in front of him or her? The answer is at least 110,000,000. To save you counting those noughts, thats 110 million chips. From there, it moves on, and every known format of poker has its own WSOP event, often several at different price points. You may think that poker is poker, but there is a bewildering array of formats these days. The daddy of them all, and far and away the most popular, is No Limit Holdem, aka Texas, or simply NLH. Add to that Limit Holdem, Omaha, Omaha 8 or better, Razz, 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball, Seven Card Stud, High Low Stud, Dealers Choice, H.O.R.S.E., Eight Game Mix, and a few others, and you get the idea. Then add events restricted to Ladies, Seniors, even Super Seniors, 9 handed, 8 handed, 6 handed, 4 handed, Heads Up (2 handed), and you get the picture. This is the business, where poker is defined, where we get to see the real champions.Its truly global, too - in 2015, 111 different nations were represented. Can you even name 111 different countries? In total, 103,512 players played the 2015 WSOP, and we can reasonably expect that number to increase again, as it does every year, in 2016.Quite the occasion then.Whilst the vast majority of players are regular guys like you and I, it also includes the pro players, and celebrities galore, with many stars of stage, screen and sports taking part.Historically, the big names associated with the WSOP are guys like Stu Ungar, Phil Hellmuth, Greg Raymer, Chris Moneymaker, and, fingers crossed, if his ailing health permits, the grand-daddy of them all, Doyle Brunson.Doyle is 82 now, and a little frail, as you may expect, but when he trundles into the Rio cardroom in his mobility scooter, the place erupts. Poker is not known for deference to elders, but Doyle, aka Texas Dolly, is recognized as the most influential man in poker, and the original author of pokers most influential textbook Super System. He has 10 WSOP bracelets to his name - rather oddly, WSOP winners get a bracelet of all things, in addition to a wheelbarrow full of cash. Even more remarkably, he won the WSOP Main in successive years with the same hand, which, arguably, is one of the worst hands in poker, 10-2. On both occasions, in 76 and 77, his 10-2 became a full house, one of the very best hands in poker.The WSOP originally took place in the wonderfully named Binions Gambling Hall, and later moved across to the Rio All-Suite Hotel. Binions is Downtown, on Fremont Street, and exists to this day. Its tired and rundown, almost a health hazard in fact, but if you ever get to Las Vegas, you have to go to Binions and play a little poker, the place reeks of poker tradition and history.So there it is, the WSOP in a nutshell.If any of that tickles your fancy, Ill be there, as always, and during the coming weeks, maybe Ill send back a story or two from what is, in the world of poker, the greatest event on Earth, bar none. So bookmark this page, and the WSOP tales of derring do, or, in my case, not so derring do, will follow. Vicarious Vegas is the next best thing to being there, but really, if you can get there, you should.Remember Clarksons voice, eh? The WSOP - the greatest poker event in the WORLDDDDDD. Replica Air Max . Reimer told TSNs Mark Masters on Tuesday that he doesnt know if he will be moved leading up to the March 5 trade deadline but added he wasnt interested in discussing it. "Who knows whats going to happen on the horizon here and right now I dont know if I want to talk about it too much. Cheap Authentic Air Max .com) - Virginia is for loving Latrell Scott. https://www.airmaxchina.us/ .The Los Angeles Lakers star passed Michael Jordan for third on the NBAs career scoring list Sunday night in a 100-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Fake Air Max . The team said they will announce a corresponding roster move prior to their series opener on Tuesday night in Kansas City. Cheap Air Max For Sale . The 2010 batting champ showed what he can do when hes mostly healthy. Gonzalez homered, doubled and singled in his return to the lineup, and the Colorado Rockies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 13-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night. PHILADELPHIA -- Thaddeus Young always had his confidence. He just needed to find his stroke. Once he did, Young gave the 76ers a rare bright spot in a bleak season. Young hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left to lift Philadelphia to a 95-92 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. "I was like, Im making this shot," Young said. "I hadnt made one the whole game. But I was like, whatever it takes, it was going to go down." So did the Bobcats. Young hit the final big shot in a fourth quarter loaded with back-and-forth baskets, a poorly contested jumper from the left of the arc off a feed from Michael-Carter Williams. Young scored 11 points and his winner was his only 3-pointer of the game. Kemba Walkers last-gasp shot was off the mark. Spencer Hawes had 17 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists for the Sixers. Evan Turner scored 23 points and Carter-Williams had 20. "You find those (wins) from time to time to help promote what youre doing," coach Brett Brown said. "They work hard. They really invest time. They completely get along." Walker led the Bobcats with 26 points and Al Jefferson had 24. Hard to believe, the Bobcats (16-24) entered the game as the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. But this one had the feel of a bad preseason finale until the final minutes. Charlottes Gerald Henderson missed his first nine shots. Philadelphias Tony Wroten spent more time throwing the ball into the stands than to a teammate. Sixers forward Brandon Davies was whistled for four fouls in 5 minutes. Both teams shot clunkers from the free throw line (Bobcats 17 of 26; 76ers 11 of 20) and 3-point arc (Bobcats 5 of 20; 76ers 6 of 15). And the turnovers. So many turnovers -- a sloppy 24 for the Sixers that led to 25 points and helped the Bobcats rally from 11 down. "You fight hard to come back, then you just cant come up with the plays to win the game," Henderson said. Henderson stripped Turner and dunked for a rare easy basket and a one-point lead late in the fourth. Hawes followed with a 3 to put the Sixers up 89-87. Jeffersson tied it.dddddddddddd Turner went inside to make it 91-89. Walker tied it at 92-all. This one seemed set for overtime. Young took care of that with one of his biggest shots of the season, a needed lift for a team with only 13 wins. "We have to get better at finishing games and keeping our turnovers down," Young said. "We dont have very many (wins), so we have to cherish what weve got." The sputtering Bobcats have lost nine of 10. "When the games on the line, youve got to have one clean coverage," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "We did a poor job with the two guys involved in that." While the win helped the Sixers snap a four-game losing streak, they are still all about building for the future and have steeled themselves for a season spent near the bottom of the standings. They hope Nerlens Noel helps take them to the top. Noel, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, hasnt played this season as he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The 6-foot-11 centre was injured last season playing for Kentucky. The Sixers are taking a cautious approach toward bringing along their top prospect. Sixers president Sam Hinkie said some restrictions on Noel have been lifted and he is now able to participate in limited on-court work. "There are several benchmarks Nerlens still must meet, and during that time we will closely monitor his progress and regularly evaluate his status," Hinkie said. "Our goal remains the same, which is to give Nerlens every opportunity to ensure a long, productive NBA career." Brown said there was "no definitive timeline" on when Noel would play for the Sixers. "At age 19, hes got an awful lot to offer, an awful lot to give," Brown said. "I personally cant wait to coach him. Hes excited. He wants to get out there. But we have to do right by him." Notes: Hawes and Carter-Williams each scored 12 points to help the Sixers take a 53-45 lead into halftime. ... The Sixers held a 50-42 rebounding edge. ... There were four lead changes and three ties in the fourth quarter. ' ' '
