It's the second game with buy-in of 10,000 dollars and entries are not so many but even so enough money has been gathered for few players. There is nothing wrong with that and i expect good results from the famous. For moment they did not have significant results.

$ 10,000 is probably not a very large amount for professional poker players ... But for ordinary people, this is quite a large amount, which of course can lead to Profit, but beating 1,000 people is difficult ... and again I see the first bracelet getting ... more and more people are bracelet holders and it's wonderful

If I had 10k I rather pay for the entry on the Main Event.

Categorical. The main event is the most important event but these people mostly of them, can afford to buy entry in this tournament. For who does not have money then he can buy where it is most important. There are many players and more paid places. Smile

I guess. But again, 10k or 20k is still a lot of money there. Sometimes even some pros struggle to pay their tourney entries, that is why they often sell percentages.

It is a very big competition in the poker world and it's normal for some professional players to have problems, when they want to play in exciting tournaments. It's not easy for them, but the WSOP organizers, should to make satellite tournaments during a year. This will bring more entries with less money.
