Belmont, Massachusetts - ThetaPhone is proud to announce the release of the Poker Omnibus W50P, the first iPhone and iPad app dedicated to the World Series of Poker's history, players, and records. As the World Series of Poker celebrates its 50th running, you can now peruse stories, results, hands, book reviews, and more about the festival that helped make poker the world's most popular card game.
In half a century, the WSOP has grown from a small cash game to over a hundred bracelet events in 2019 and spread from Las Vegas, around the U.S. (with the WSOP Circuit), and across the world (with the WSOP Europe and Asia-Pacific). Browse by year or by category or by player. Learn hand nicknames, player nicknames, player catchphrases. Read special articles on the Big One for One Drop (the world's first million-dollar buyin poker tournament), the Ladies Championship, and the Casino Employees tournament.
Relive nearly one hundred key hands in World Series of Poker history and see what else these players have accomplished. View a vast assortment of WSOP records: firsts, career records (including the progression of some of the major ones like the youngest bracelet winner), decade leaders (for each of the WSOP's five decades), single-year records, single-event records, and women's records.
Special features include the complete history of the Last Former Main Event Champion Standing, the Last Woman Standing, and the Last Celebrity Standing along with a comparison of the three by year. Thumb through virtual Poker Greats playing card decks, including the Poker Hall of Fame, the Women in Poker Hall of Fame, Main Event Winners, and Main Event Runners-Up.
Enjoy reviews of over 30 major books about the World Series of Poker, including an overview, table of contents (even for books that don't have one!), and errata.
Poker trivia abounds throughout the Omnibus:
* Which WSOP Main Event champion had never flown on a plane before his life-changing trip to Las Vegas?
* Which winner entered the tournament only because he'd won a bet on a horse?
* Which runner-up was able to enter the tournament because he won the lottery?
* Which runner-up probably wasn't the runner-up?
* Who were the first husband and wife to both win WSOP bracelets? (It wasn't Bob and Sandy Stupak; they weren't even second.)
* Which obscure bracelet winner might have been the youngest bracelet winner for over a decade without anyone ever acknowledging it? (Until now, that is!)
The Poker Omnibus W50P will be updated after this year's festival (Michael Mizrachi and Jim Bechtel have already rewritten poker history this month).

Poker Omnibus W50P is a Universal Purchase ($9.99 in the U.S.) available today in the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices running iOS 10 or higher. No ads, in-app purchases, or registration. Free updates for life.
