The second-largest WSOP gives Griffin, Wells and Azinger a grand stage

The first day of the World Series of Poker main event, 1D, was for a record. 2,461 players participated in Sunday’s felt event, increasing the size of the main event field to 6,844. Only the 2006 main event, with 8,773 players, had a larger field. This year’s champion will win $9,119,517 and the total main event prize is $64,333,600.

“Given the economy and gas prices and all that, we’re very happy to beat last year’s number (6,358) by about 500,” said Jack Eppel, WSOP Tournament Director. “Our goal has been to make this year’s World Series poker the biggest and best in tournament history and we’re on our way.”

The tournament will rank 666th and $21,230 will be awarded to the 666th-place finisher. The Amazon Room at Rio’s All Suite Hotel and Casino was buzzing and going crazy when the prize money and the first prize money were announced. But it has waned compared to the afternoon events. 스포츠토토
