Money is the number one thing that comes in winning a game of poker. There is no poker game that is not associated with money. Gambling is the spice of poker and if a poker player is playing for the fun of playing without thinking about the money, it would be disastrous. The money that is won at the end of a tournament is what gives the winner a sense of achievement.   In 2012, a lot of games have been played and more would be played until the end of the year.

Vitaly Lunkin is not going to finish this year without winning a major tournament. The reason for this is because it is now possible for black horses like Sam Holden to win any poker game like WSOP. And because of this, there is no guarantee that a player would win this year’s WSOP poker game.  It is going to be fierce and exciting with suspense as men arrive Las Vegas this November for the most lucrative game in poker.  The money of WSOP is the glory, millionaires have been raised and another poker player would be getting richer this November at the end of the game.
