If you are new to poker, you may have only known the most easy and simple poker variation, the No-Limit Hold’em. After all, you may be surprised to know that there are over 50 poker variations out there. That only shows that poker has come a long way since its humble beginnings of just a game of card played within the family. Besides, the internet has greatly contributed to the popularity of poker games most especially upon the availability of free online poker games and tutorials. But even if poker comes in different varieties, the finale of any prestigious poker tournament, like WSOP, is still the Main Event No-Limit Hold’em Championship.

No-limit Hold’em is considered as a very entertaining poker variation which could be played by up to ten individuals. Because of its simple rules and fast-paced game, it has become a well-liked poker game. No-limit hold’em is played in four rounds of betting wherein every player is traded with two faced down hole cards and the rest of the players will be sharing with the five faced up
community cards. The player who got the highest five-card poker hand will win the pot. Moreover, it is called no-limit primarily because there is no preset amount for you to bet, meaning you can bet how much you want and can even opt for all-in where you are gambling your whole stack of tournament chips. Now, let us consider about the success of last year’s WSOP Main Event No-Limit Hold’em Championship.
