The calendar’s inching ever closer to one of the greatest gaming events in the world: the World Series of Poker, which goes down here in Las Vegas this year from May 28th through July 16th. If you’ll be attending—as a player or as a spectator—we hope you’ll bring your appetite to Mercato della Pescheria for an authentic Italian meal in the midst of all the high-stakes excitement!
The 2019 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas
This is an extra-special year for the World Series of Poker, the longest-running and richest poker tournament on the planet. It’s the 50thannual running of the series—the WSOP golden jubilee, if you will—and it’s on track to be the biggest and best edition yet.
Last year’s prize money approached $267 million with nearly 124,000 entries.
The World Series of Poker struts its stuff at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino (a mere two miles or so from our St. Marks Square location here at Mercato della Pescheria). To mark the golden anniversary, the 2019 event kicks off with the Big 50 No-Limit Hold’em on the opening weekend (May 30th through June 2nd)—only the first salvo of an unparalleled lineup of games packing the World Series of Poker schedule.
Some 10,000 square feet of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino ballroom space will accommodate the better part of 500 poker tables during the World Series of Poker. There’ll be low-, medium-, and high-limit games going on continuously, 24 hours a day, throughout the competition, with buy-ins beginning as low as $70.
