World Series of Poker Main Event - The Numbers Are In!

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 800 ante

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) closed registration on its unique 2020’s hybrid online and live edition of the $10,000 No-Limit Hold-Em World Championship, known better to poker fans as the Main Event.

Previously GGPoker played the online portion of the international bracket, drawing 674 players and creating a prize pool of $6,470,000. The remaining eight players from eight different nations will convene for live play on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at King’s Casino in the Czech Republic with its champion traveling to Las Vegas for a heads-up showdown for an additional million dollars on Wed., Dec. 30.

On Sunday, Dec. 13 at 6 p.m. local time in Las Vegas, registration closed on WSOP.com’s real money gaming platform for the USA field. Once tallied up, the tournament drew 705 entrants who posted the $10,000 buy-in creating a total prize pool of $6,768,000.

The 2020 Main Event will establish a new benchmark for prize pool in U.S. regulated markets, easily eclipsing the $2.019 million achieved for the 2020 WSOP Online championship in July 2020. Also of note, since regulations began for online poker in 2014, never had a player won $1 million or greater on a U.S. licensed poker site. The 2020 Main Event will make millionaires of both first and second place for the domestic field, and when combined with first and second place payouts for the international bracket, will see four players hitting the magic mark from the tournament.

“It’s a great result so far,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “I think considering the circumstances 1,379 players is a strong field size that can stand up to the history of the event. It’s also an important milestone for regulated online poker. Can’t wait to see who will win this world championship bracelet.”
