The biggest poker event is on. WSOP 2013 is making poker history! With Canada winning a record number of WSOP bracelets and a lady winning the lone WSOP open event this year, OPN is keeping a roving eye for the performance of the Indian contingent in Las Vegas. At the Rio, many Indians have made inroads and finished in the money in various events. We are proud of everything our Indian poker players are doing during WSOP 2013 and congratulate them for the same.
