So you're wondering who has the most World Series of Poker main event wins? Let's talk about it!
Texas Hold’em really is a simple game when you boil it down. Everyone is dealt two private hole cards, and five cards are dealt in the middle as community cards. Whoever at the table can make the best five-card hand wins the pot. Simple.
