$50 Million is a lot of Money! WCOOP Here We Come

Pokerstars has released the numbers for the next World Championship of Online Poker and they are spectacular! $50 million is guaranteed across 62 MTTs and it all kicks off September 5th.

$50 million is a lot of money. It's so much money, in fact, that most people have a hard time conceptualizing it.

To put things in perspective we've done a little digging and found a bunch of other stuff that costs the same.

  • Tiger Woods' estimated endorsement losses after his recent, shall we say, "Moral Misadventures".
  • 100 brand new Rolls Royce Phantoms.
  • Estimated worth of the world's largest record collection.
  • The settlement Heather Mills received when she divorced Paul McCartney.
  • The price of the Coral Gables mansion Lebron James is interested in buying.
  • $2 million less than the 2005 WSOP Main Event prize pool.
  • One F-16 Falcon fighter jet.
  • 3,125,000 sets of Copag poker cards
  • $1.9 million less than the sale price of Picasso's "Les noces de Pierrette".
  • Almost three and a half years in the Hugh Heffner Sky Villa at the Palms, at $40k a night.
