A nine-year-old record was broken on May 27th as 8,926 players had already signed up for the Colossus event. (153 more than when Jamie Gold won the Main Event back in 2006). Although history was made on Wednesday, WSOP is expecting another 11,000 + players to enter the $565 buy-in tournament.
The Colossus is a brand-new tournament that debuts today. The number of entrants mentioned above (8,926) means that the $5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool already has been boosted with more prize money. Exciting to say the least!
Check back on Monday morning for another update on this record tournament.
