WSOP - Main Event: Payout structure for this year's final table

Tags: main event, peter eastgate, wsop.
Posted on 09 July 2009 by "T".

6494 players paid the buy-in of $10,000 and took part in the main event in the world series of poker this year. Of all the 6494 participants, 646 players will receive a piece of the total prize pool of $64,940,000. Even though $64,940,000 is a lot of money, it's still not as much as in last year's main event.

Even though so many players (6494) took part in this year's main event, it's still fewer than last year. This means that winner of this year's main event won't receive as much as Peter Eastgate (picture) did when he won back in 2008. Peter Eastgate received a bit over $9 million dollars, and this year the winner will "only" receive $8,5 million dollars.

Final table payout structure:
1. $8 546 435
2. $5 182 601
3. $3 479 485
4. $2 502 787
5. $1 953 395
6. $1 587 133
7. $1 404 002
8. $1 300 228
9. $1,263,602

hmm all players started with 30 K chips right ? ... 30 000 x 6494 = 194 920 000 chips ... 194 920 000 / by 646 (ITM) = 301 579 average chipstack when they reach the money . LOL GOOD LUCK !
Average on final table 9 players = 21 657 777 ...unbelivable.

Would it not have been the largest ever if all those players who got denied entrance on day 1d had gotten in earlier?

Still a hell of a 1st prize though

Eight million dollars is a lot of money to win in a poker tournament. Just a while ago i have been watching an event, dont know which, of the 2006 WSOP, where the last 12 players all received above a million dollars prize. That even was announced by the speaker and every rookies at the tables just gone nuts and went "uff" and stuff like that! I wonder who is going to win this year...

It is a sick amount of money for everyone in the final table. It will probably change the lifes for at least 4 of the finalists. By "just" coming on 9th place, it would definately change mine.
 Jodoli09/07/2009 23:24:22 GMT
It is absolutely crazy. This amount is huge almost 9 million dollar! You dont need to worl more and you can spend the rest of your life playing poker Smile But if i am not mistaken jamie gold won 12 million in the other edition of World Series of Poker!

 d0ink10/07/2009 12:03:26 GMT
This is just sick, to much money, i would love to be on the final table. 1 million for me is just fine. gl for all players, specialy portuguese players
 SuperNoob10/07/2009 12:29:42 GMT
8.5 million for 1st place, thats a very big prize.
Good payout for other final table players too, after buyin of 10,000.
No wonder its the best poker tournament in the world, hope to play it some day.

Good point Joe, they really should have found a way to accomodate the extra players. I bet two things will happen next year though, they will be ready for the rush of players on day 1c and 1d, also more players will be signing up early after hearing about this. Really, this is the WSOP main event and you wait til day 1d to SIGN UP? Are you f'n kidding me?
 holapoker10/07/2009 15:39:42 GMT

 spanishman10/07/2009 22:29:41 GMT
