2007 WSOP: Bigger than ever
The 55 events played out in various poker variations and with a range of buy-ins attracted a total of 54,288 players, averaging close to 1,000 entrants per tournament.
The Main Event didn't quite reach the score of 2006 - a golden year in Main Event history - but with 6,358 players spread out over four Day 1s, it's still the second-largest poker competition ever.
WSOP 2007 generated a total prize pool of almost $160 million! The prize pool of the Main Event amounts to almost $60 million, and one winner will take home $8.25 million. As many as 621 players in the Main Event will finish in the money and receive at least $20,320 - double the buy-in.
"Poker is alive and well, and the 2007 World Series of Poker has been a tremendous success," said World Series of Poker Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack.Earlier during WSOP 2007, Pollack had promised to carry out a number of improvements for WSOP 2008, at the request of player representatives.
