The World Series of Poker championship event kicks off Monday afternoon with more than 600 players competing for a $6 million purse — both new records.

The $10,000 buy-in, no-limit Texas Hold ’Em tournament — arguably the most prestigious poker tourney in the world — will continue around the clock until a winner is declared, most likely on Thursday.
