2014 Millionaire Maker Draws Second Largest Turnout in WSOP History

This year’s Millionaire Maker tournament has made history as having the second-largest turnout in World Series of Poker history.

An amazing 7977 individuals entered the event, which featured a $1500 buy-in.  The No-Limit Hold’em tournament will pay out $1,319,587.  Only the 2006 Main Event attracted more entries.

It is interesting to note that Saturday’s final player count became the largest single-day poker session ever, according to the WSOP.

Due to the large player field, it was anticipated that this event would likely conclude some time Tuesday as opposed to the initially planned Monday.

The top 819 finishers will cash out of this year’s Millionaire Maker.
