    WSOP Main Event $8.8M to winner

    SOURCE

    The field for the 49th annual World Series of Poker’s Main Event exploded on the Fourth of July with 4,571 entries, the largest ever in one sitting.

    The flurry of entries on Day 1C — traditionally the largest starting flight for the $10,000 buy-in No-limit Texas Hold ‘em World Championship —
    brought the final tally to 7,874.

    It’s the second-largest Main Event field ever, trailing only the 2006 tournament that featured 8,773 players at the height of the online and TV poker boom.

    Jamie Gold won $12 million for first place in 2006. The 2018 champion will earn $8.8 million, and a record 1,182 players will finish in the money from a prize pool of $74 million.
    The last place paid will earn $15,000.

    Final table of nine millionaires

    Each player who advances to the final table of nine is guaranteed to win at least $1 million, the ninth place prize. Second place is worth $5 million,
    third $3.75 million, fourth $2.825 million, fifth $2.15 million, sixth $1.8 million, seventh $1.5 million and eighth $1.25 million.

    Main Event demographics

    The field is comprised of players from all 50 states and Washington D.C. and 88 countries, with 2,116 players coming from outside the U.S.

    There are 7,573 men and 301 women. The average age of the participants is 41.23.

    The oldest player is John Olsen, 88, from Moss Point, Mississippi. He played Day 1B and survived.
