Officially, there is no such event as World Poker Championship to determine, who is the World Poker Champion. There are, however, several other well known worldwide poker tournaments held annually, which give us a pretty good picture of who is the best poker player in the world – The World Poker Champion. Before we start giving titles, lets explain a few things.
Giving the title of The World Poker Champion is actually quite difficult task and this is also the main reason why there is no official World Poker Championship. Just like chess, poker is considered a sport by many, but unlike chess or any other sports for that matter, winning a poker tournament with thousands of participants requires a far greater amount of luck and not so much skill. In fact the element of luck alone is the reason why lots of amateur poker players have won big championship events taking home millions of dollars.
