The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is a prestigious poker event that has captivated the hearts and minds of every poker player in the world. With this year’s edition of WSOP soon approaching, many might wonder how much it would actually cost to enter every single event. Well, if you ever had that thought then, here’s a breakdown of approximately how much it would cost you.
The first thing to do would be to look up the 2022 WSOP schedule. According to the schedule, there will be a total of 88 events that players can participate in. These events have buy-ins that range from $400 all the way to $250,000.
There are 12 events that have buy-ins less than $1,000. Events under this buy-in range include names like Salute to Warriors, Lucky 7’s and the $5 Million GTD Housewarming which are all perfect to kick-start the 2022 WSOP action.
Around 22 events in the schedule will also have the traditional $1,500 buy-in like the Millionaire Maker, Closer, and the Monster Stack. These events will surely be among the fan favourites. There are 13 Championship events which includes the Main Event. These 13 events will have the customary $10,000 buy-in.
Apart from these, there are also 10 events that have buy-ins in the range of $25,000 and above. These events are the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship, the $100,000 and #250,000 High Roller events.

When it comes down to the question of what if a player wants to fire another bullet? Well, if a player wants to re-enter, then they can do so in 53 of the 88 WSOP events. There are events that follow a freezeout format (no re-entry allowed) and these are the Super Turbo Bounty, Tag Team, Shootout, Mini Main Event, and most of the Championship events which includes the Main Event.
However, when it comes to re-entry events there is a limit here too. Out of the 53 re-entry events, 29 of them are single re-entry, 14 of them allow two re-entries, and 10 allow for more than two re-entries.
There are only four tournaments that have unlimited re-entries. Take a look below:
If we add every buy-in amount, then the figure adds up to $981,767 to play every single tournament at least once. However, to truly reach a final number, let’s also assume that players will fire the maximum number of bullets required in each event.
For unlimited re-entry events, we’ve taken the max bullets fired as three. Five bullets will be considered for the Flip & Go. With all this the grand total comes up to…
That’s over a whopping ₹14.05 Crore! For our Indian players, this surely is a big number to consider. But we will continue to keep our spirits up, and maybe this year, the Indian contingent can bring home some shiny gold WSOP bracelets.
