WSOP 2014: Play continues as 79 turns to 27

It's the nature of the game that as things progress towards the business end of the tournament, its most exciting stage, the corridors become emptied of the bustle that once marked the start of the main event. Players busted just yesterday are probably already home, thousands of miles away from this...more

At the start of our Main Event coverage we predicted success for several players who had demonstrated over the summer that they were in peak form, with big results over the summer.

WSOP 2014: Requiem for the adult onesie

You've met the guy before. He's the one who has just gone bust at the table. He looks forlorn, lonely, and lost. Everyone looks at him expectantly, but no one can summon the courage to say, "Sir, it's time to go."Today, the WSOP Main Event field will lose more than two hundred players. Most of them ...more

WSOP 2014: 291 players set for long Day 5

Matthew Haugen sat down at the World Series of Poker Main Event's Day 5 with only one assurance.

WSOP 2014: Matthias de Meulder closes out Team Pro's Main Event

There is something missing from the World Series of Poker Main Event field tonight. It feels wrong in a way that can't be adequately expressed. In any case, it's the truth.

WSOP 2014: Tanking, writhing and warnings. It must be the bubble

It's a natural phenomenon, and one that has been put to the test as recently as this month during the football World Cup - the relation between time wasting and the fortunes of the player or team involved.
