The Biggest WSOP Just Got Even Better

Tags: 888poker
Posted on Thursday, August 04, 2016 by "T".
They call it the greatest poker tournament in the world and it lives up to this billing in every way imaginable. Held in Las Vegas over the early summer every year since 1970, the World Series of Poker not only brings together the greatest exponents of the game, it's also open for anyone to enter, either by winning any of the many qualifying tournaments held in the run-up or simply by buying thems[...]   Read more » The Biggest WSOP Just Got Even Better

i am so glad to hear that the biggest wsop just got even better that i will drink a bottle of vodka just for that, now it would be a totally different scenario if the biggest wsop wouldn't get better at all- that would not give me a single reason to drink a bottle of vodka and that wouldn't make my day.

I like the november nine main event from the WSOP, because we can see new player every year not ever the same pros. And for the most pro´s it was not easy to reach the final table and this tourney was the worl Championship of poker.

Instead of spending big money being sponsor of this big WSOP tournament IMO they should put this money in getting a poker software without all the bugs they have right now.

Every day in the Blast off tournament when there is around 4,500 players left they go hand for hand and then they congratulate players being ITM which is not true because ITM is 3,280 players.

I am trying to see my tournament tickets and since a few days i just see a blank page. Waiting an answer from customer service. Aww crap! Aww crap!

It really is staggering at just how massive this event actually is. For there to be over one hundred thousand entrants is quite phenomenal and i think that is only going to get bigger and bigger

. . . The Main Event was also one of the biggest ever with a total entry of 6,737 and this is why the first prize, which will be contested at the same venue in late October, is the highest ever at $8 million. . .

$8 million is a lot of money!
Yet, if I am not mistaken, the largest first prize was $12,000,000, with a total prize pool of $82,512,162 (8,773 entrants) in 2006 main event when Jamie Gold won the championship. Did I misread something here?

Imagine being in it for the first time and winning the first prize.
It can be a life changing for many of the entrants.
Cause for the big pros it must be something typical in terms of money.
Winning the bracelet must be more important for them Smile

I guess all of the USA's poker community participated in some ways to be quite honest.
