World Series of Poker 400 Chip Set
In the summer of 1949, as the story goes, inveterate gambler Nicholas "Nick the Greek" Dandolos approached Benny Binion with an unusual requestto challenge the best in a high-stakes poker marathon. Binion agreed to set up a match between Dandolos and the legendary Johnny Moss, with the stipulation that the game be played in public view. Fast forward 55 years. With the introduction of preliminary "satellite" competitions with lower buy-ins, Binion's prophesy came to fruition, and the popularity of the World Series of Poker soared. In 1982, the tournament had 52 entries. Five years later, there were 2,141 entries, and the 2002 event had 7,595 participants. The prize money increased from $7,769,000 a decade ago to a staggering $19,599,230 in 2002!This year, eight grueling hours after play started on the final day of the 35th annual World Series of Poker, Greg Raymer, a corporate patent attorney from Stonington, Connecticut, scooped the final pot of the night a staggering $25 million in chips and walked away with $5 million in cash, the largest prize in poker tournament history.Game includes: Hardtop aluminum case to store and protect your chips! 400 11.5 gram, casino quality poker chips in four different colors!Includes two pairs of premium throwing dice!
