The tournaments included in this series are mostly dedicated to a single poker type – No-Limit Texas Hold’em. The winners of these tournaments are awarded not with the traditional gold bracelet, but rather with a unique ring, which has already become a very prestigious award in poker world. This is quite a prestigious tournament series, which many serious poker professionals enjoy participating in. Among other things, prizes include tickets to major tournaments, right up to the Main Event of the WSOP Mother Tour Series, which takes place every year at the Rio Casino. Every tournament is broadcast by ESPN, a media partner of WSOP.
