World Series of Poker – 1973

The idea of a World Series of Poker began in 1969 with an event called the Texas Gambling Reunion. It was an invitational event sponsored by Tom Moore of San Antonio, Texas, and held at the Holiday Hotel and Casino in Reno. This inaugural event was won by Crandell Addington. The set of tournaments that the World Series of Poker (WSOP) would evolve into was the brainchild of Las Vegas casino owner and poker player Benny Binion. In 1970, the first WSOP at Binion’s Horseshoe took place as a series of cash games that included five-card stud, deuce to seven low-ball draw, razz, seven-card stud, and Texas hold ’em. The format for the Main Event as a freeze-out Texas hold ’em game came the next year. The winner in 1970, Johnny Moss, was elected by his peers as the first World Champion of Poker and received a silver cup as a prize.

Final Table –
1st Walter “Puggy” Pearson $130,000
2nd Johnny Moss
3rd Jack Straus
4th Bobby Brazil
5th Bob Hooks
6th Brian “Sailor” Roberts

“I view each tournament as a gigantic minefield that I must navigate my
way through without getting blown up. I’m likely to be wounded several
times along the way, but as long as none are fatal, I’ll get to the other side”.

– Richard Tatalovich,
United States Poker Championship winner

John Rubino–The Money Melt Down presents
John and I connected to discuss the latest economic developments. His next book, co-written with GoldMoney’s James Turk will be released any day. John believes that bank lending is about to pick up big time. The reason is simple. Since at least the 1980s, US policy has been to convince us to borrow as much as possible on pretty much anything we could think of. This worked brilliantly until 2008, when homeowners, consumers and businesses hit a wall and private sector defaults began to exceed new loans. Another Great Depression was imminent.

But instead of allowing this natural cleansing process to run its course, governments around the world stepped into the breach themselves, borrowing tens of trillions of dollars to replace evaporating private sector debt. The idea, to the extent that there was one, was to buy time for traumatized consumers and businesses to relax a bit and start borrowing again. So sit back and watch the fun begin again.
