The numbers are in for the 2022 WSOP $10,000 buy-in NLHE Main Event.

Day 2D was the official closing of registration, which saw a grand total of 8,663 entries - the second-biggest field in the history of this tournament. It was the 2006 WSOP Main Event that drew the biggest players to date, with 8,773 entries, just 110 more than this year's , but still not quite record-breaking, turnout.

Thanks to the huge field, the resulting prize pool went up to $80,782,475, to be paid out among the top 1,300 finishers. The min-cash will be worth $15,000, while the eventual champion is set to walk away with $10,000,000, along with the championship bracelet.

This will be the fourth time that a WSOP Main Event champion has earned an eight-figure payday, with this year's winner set to enter a three-way tie with 2019 champion Hossein Ensan and 2014 victor Martin Jacobson for the second-largest payout earned in this prestigious event. Jamie Gold remains the gold standard in this scene, having won $12,000,000 as the champion back in 2006.

Here's a list of 10 Biggest WSOP Main Events ever held:

The WSOP is the coolest and it's normal for players to sign up for tournaments there. May. The event is a favorite, but there are many other tournaments where you win very good money. Anyway, only quality players play here and that's why there are strong tournaments

the wsop is a great event where big poker tournaments are held, the prize pool is always exceeded, and the first places always win millions of dollars, even though they are discounted by the taxes they have to pay, the winnings are still juicy.

I guess a good sponsor always helps the prize pool to go higher , a good boost . Now I see it's GG poker the main event main sponsor , on the past it used to be 888poker . 10 million dollars , 1/8 of the total money to the winner , 1/8 of money goes to 1/8.700 of players lol

The WSOP is something good and well organized, that's why the players' buy-ins cover the amounts of money from the tournaments. There is a lot of professionalism here and I don't know if they come out at a loss in the total tournaments. I don't think there is a need for sponsors if the amounts are covered by registrations
 geseco1205/08/2022 00:48:24 GMT
are very nice tournaments where many players come to play it and very large jackpots are mounted and that is why they reach millionaires prizes the first places, every poker player dreams someday to play these tournaments.

there are several tournaments at the WSOP and many players end up there. You should know that some rebuys there are excellent, it is important to have travel and hotel money. People save money and go there to play, once a year or once every fews years
