A lot of children dream about being famous when they grow up, but how? There are a few viable options out there.
Some dream of being an actor. Others dream of being a musician. Still others are looking to playing poker as a means of gaining fortune and fame.
Poker gambling is a growing market and more people than ever are looking to it as a means of not only making money, but finding notoriety.
The bottom line for gamblers today is that if they can make it to the main tables of the top poker tournaments, they have a great shot at becoming famous.
Particularly if they are double winners, they can expect a few notable articles and some fame to come along.
One of the biggest reasons why gamblers are gaining so much fame is due to the huge payouts that come along with tournament wins.
For example, the last WSOP winner of the last main table walked away with well over $8-million in a payout. No longer is the WSOP a small-payout game.
In today’s market you can expect if you make it to the main table—or to the last table for other games—you likely are going to end up with a lot on your plate to deal with. Poker is the most popular game on the gambling circuit right now and with good reason.
The WSOP is not the only big dollar tournament that is producing famous players. The WPT is well up there too.
This is another way that players can gain some notoriety- by participating in the various tournaments out there. Right now there is no shortage of them either.
The WSOP and the WPT are just two big-dollar tournaments but more are cropping up all over the circuit thanks to the popularity of the game. As it continues to gain in popularity, more dollars are going to be siphoned into the market too.
You can expect that as poker continues to grow, that is a formula that will expand. No longer are the famous limited to those who are just in the entertainment industry.
There now is a huge market for poker players and people are moving to this market more than ever.
