Unprecedented 6343 Entries at First Ever WSOP ‘Millionaire Maker’ Event

The numbers are in and they are staggering for the first ever World Series of Poker “Millionaire Maker” event. 

The WSOP reports that, after playing two separate flights Saturday (Day 1a and 1b), eight levels of grueling play whittled the field from 6,343 runners, an unprecedented number in terms of low buy-in WSOP tourneys, to 1,481 players.

The initial investment was a mere $1500. No other tournament to date has ever offered a prize this big with a buy-in this small. 

The prize pool was set at $8,563,050.  The winner will walk away with a cool million dollars.
