Win and travel
We all know that travel is one of the most valuable and rewarding things you can do with your life – the chance to visit some of the world’s most beautiful, interesting, and cultural destinations is an enriching activity to enjoy. Now, if you have a hobby, something which you enjoy, then combining your pastime of choice with travel is a real double whammy, and a real must-do.
Do you enjoy poker? You may be an online player, or you may play with your friends at home, or in a club, but have you ever considered combining travelling and playing? You could even win big!
The World Series of Poker hold events all over the world throughout the year on their tournament calendar, with the chance to win a prestigious WSOP bracelet, and of course a monetary reward. There is major kudos in winning one of these events, however there is also considerable kudos in taking part in one too.
How does the idea of travel and poker grab you?
If you haven’t heard of it before, the WSOP circuit of events dates back to around 1970, when it was based in the gambling mecca of Las Vegas, where casinos seem to be on every corner, even more so today. Since then its roots have grown, and the world began to embrace the excitement of poker, with thousands of players now heading to events wherever in the world they are based, all hoping to join the poker hall of fame and grab one of those prestigious bracelets.
So, where can you go?
The USA makes an appearance on a large portion of the event calendar, with events being held in Connecticut, Baltimore, Florida, Indiana, LA, New Jersey, Maryland, North Carolina, and of course, Las Vegas itself. You could be playing poker with some of the world’s best players in the morning, and then heading out to enjoy beach life in Florida in the afternoon – combine travel with play and enjoy the major benefits!
It’s not just the USA which gets attention either, as events are also held in Campione in beautiful Italy, and the Czech Republic destination of Rozvadov. Who knows which destinations will be added to the calendar in the future? The popularity of poker has certainly grown over recent years, and shows no signs of slowing down.
Being able to see some of the world’s most beautiful destinations and play your game of choice, boosting adrenaline and your chances of winning, is a fantastic combination, and one which more and more players are trying every year.
Of course, if you don’t have the cash to be funding a worldwide poker adventure, then you can also head online and play, hoping to win enough money to fund a trip in the future perhaps.
So, are you keen to buy a ticket and hop on a plane to a WSOP event? You certainly won’t be alone, so why not join the thousands of players who have embraced the idea of travelling the globe in search of their poker dream?
