Joe Hachem won 7.5mil when he won the main event. The winner of this years will earn 9.1mil.
The prize money is always proportionate to the amount of buy ins. This years is the second biggest ever, with the biggest being Jamie Golds 2006 win of 12mil - although he had to give half of it away to the guy who bankrolled him for the tourny.
I don't suppose BRM would like to bankroll me for the 2009 wsop? I'll offer you 60%-40% with a garanteed cash or your money back (or me skipping the country

Posted by MANUEDO: Eastgate has been too lucky... I should not have favourite player ( because I am not from USA either from Russia too ), but I hope Demidov will be the winer, just for a matter of justice !!!!!
Well Peter Eastgate has been running hot at the last stages but don't forget how Russia 4bet AI 99 IP and got called by Rheems TT (dominated) and sucked out my favourite player. If he had not sucked out he would have been out, he had 80% chance of going home with the over aggressive 99's. All players get lucky and all players get unlucky so it's hard to find the justified winner. Poker is not about justice but about skill and luck which both players have imo.
