The 2018 edition of the iconic World Series of Poker opens this week in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. The tournament is highlighted by 78 high-stakes card events expected to draw thousands of players and break attendance records.

For the first time, players may use a big blind ante format for some events and New Jersey poker players can participate in some events online.
