The Main Event of the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has become the second-largest in history. 8,569 entries have generated a $80,548,600 prize pool and guaranteed an incredible $10 million top prize.
This prize will match that collected by Swedish pro poker player Martin Jacobson in 2014. It will be eclipsed only by the $12 million won by Jamie Gold in 2006, the year that saw a record 8,773 players sign to compete during what was considered the pinnacle of the ‘poker boom’.
