07-08-2017 25570 responses Top results

It has been a long summer, but for many who have spent it at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino it seems to have flown by very quickly. The long and the short of it — after 70-plus events the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event has finally arrived with the first of three Day 1 flights kicking off today at 11 a.m. Vegas time.

Many more bracelets were claimed over the last seven days during another exciting week of poker, and we'll start this week's quiz again by asking a few more questions about recent results. Meanwhile with the Main Event getting going today, we're also including a couple of questions at the end about last year's WSOP Main Event.

Answer six of the eight multiple-choice questions correctly to pass the quiz. When you're done, check the "Top results" to see how you did compared to others, and if you're logged in here at PokerNews your username will appear. Need an account? Click here and get one.
