2016 WSOP By the Numbers: Results By Event, Cashes, Millionaires

The largest number of participants ever.

The third-most money ever awarded. The most bracelets in one series. Twenty-three players who cashed for over $1m.

The 2016 World Series of Poker again lived up to its status as the granddaddy of all poker series and, although the results of the November Nine are still pending, there are plenty of numbers already in the books.

Here's a look at some of the more astounding stats from Vegas along with a full list of winners from all 69 bracelet events.
