The annual WSOP is the largest poker event in the world with tens of thousands of participants. Last year, for example, there were over 187,000 participants from 118 countries. Not surprisingly, on this scale, it will be difficult to take precautions in the current situation. And the borders of many countries by that time may still be closed. The Executive Director of the World Series of Poker said:
We intend to host the World Series of Poker this year, but we need more time to host a traditional event, prioritizing the wellbeing of guests and employees.
According to him, some of the events will be held online in the summer on their official website. And the tournament itself this year will be held, most likely, in an abridged version.
