Wow it is so hard to understand how people can pay 300000 buyin into one tournament, i not understand how big bankroll you need to have to can play such tournaments, maybe no less 5 millions, this is very serious money, not for 99 percent of players

the thing they fail to say is how much of the action the player actually had since quite often these 'pros' have backers - which is the interesting part!! maybe thats why he doesnt focus on the amount so much because he doesnt actually get 3million

99% +, Gerimantas.
This amount is enormous but think about it that: there are 36 players with 7 places in the money.
Any professional player who pay this buy-in dreams to win 1st place.
There are chances to lose, but you are more chances to earn a few million dollars.
It's easier here than in a tournament with a few k players.
36 players is not few k.

Of course, the $ 300,000 fee is something astounding for me ..... but for rich people it is possible .... you can try to risk it .... Especially since there are not very many players .... a draw of more than 3.5 million Dollars It is of course very cool ..... congratulations to the winner ... Although he does not need my congratulations at all ..... he is so self-sufficient

I still cant get used to buy ins that high Smile
It is a fortune for most of the people and yet some are buying in a tournament with
such amounts.
And yes you may be right, that they may sell action, and not all of the money,
come out from their pockets.
But does this happen with every single player participating in tournaments like this?

Almost certain that many players here are selling percentages, just no way any non millionaire could payout this much money for gambling recreationally - does not make sense.

Many many congratulations to Isaac Haxton on winning this. This must have been one of the most difficult tournaments to win ever. I am glad for Isaac because i have always enjoyed watching him play as well as listening to his very knowledgable commentary

Of course, if there are only 36 players in the tournament, then there are good chances of winning .... Unless of course you are a good player yourself .... this is about the same as now in gray snow .... there, too, then cash tournaments play about 30-40 man .... no more .... And the chance to get prizes is very big .... so winning these tournaments is not very valuable ..... than in those where there are a lot of players

no matter what number of players we have at tournament,it still hard to win it or be in prize pool!when buy in is high as on this tourney its even harder,when most of this player know how to play poker and with big "numbers",so you must have nice experience for it and also big bank account!

Normally, it is not easy when there are only experienced players, but if you look at paid places you will notice that: The 7th place has 240,000 dollars ( taxable money ).
Even so, this money is big money.
Then follow 6 and 5 places with more money and the rest of positions with 1 million plus .
Who does not try to play like that?
Few hundred k is big for all players, but the first 5 positions means $972 k + and this is a big oportunity to play, if you are a professional. Smile

this is very normal practice. only a small amount of players actually buy 100% of themselves into a tournament - sometimes its a backer who doesnt actually play, or sometimes its other players, so even if they bust, they still have a chance of winning some money or covering the loss. even now you can sell shares on certain websites for online games or live games

Why Isaac Haxton should boast when he earns money?
Do you think this is nice?
There are also players who boast pretty much, but in general it is good to stay modest and a gentleman.
It does not matter how good you are in poker, but you need to have respect for your opponents after you beat them. Smile
