to take 315 players to World Series, a Costa Rican poker operator, announced it has delegated 315 amateur players for the World Series annual poker tournament to be held in Las-Vegas on Saturday, the website announced.

After this win the number of entrants has increased over the last year and reached a 138 percent growth. This year the Series’ prize-pool is estimated at $20 million – a record-breaking trophy.
