According to the words of Jack Effel who is a vice president of World Series of Poker, the 50th anniversary of series is intended to attract as many people as possible and also to break down the myth that WSOP contains only expensive games with high stakes for highrollers and professionals. According to his words, all poker fans will be able to find a game to their liking, regardless of budget, game experience and time frame.
