2015 WSOP: The Colossus Attracts Record Field

Tags: The Colossus.
Posted on 29 May 2015 by "T".

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.

This is a unbelievably massive field but at quite a low buy in it does give the chance for loads of recreational players to fulfil a dream in playing at a big event in the world series.a great prize pool as well.

Is a huge thing and a massive record, and because the buy.in is a low thing, and like klash23 said above, call for a lot of recreation players that wants to try their shot and maybe win big.
Maybe because is a the first time of this tournament, we hope that next year can break another record and more players buy.in into the colossus.
This shows that the organization of tournaments around the world is attentive to requests from players and for new ways to innovate.

$565 buy-in is low compared to the WSOP Main Event 10k entry fee but otherwise I do not know many 'recreational' players who willing to spend an iPhone worth of sum to play poker with strangers. It's all relative but six hundred bucks is still 25% of the average pay or 40% of the minimal wage/month in the USA.
