WSOP 2022 ME: Total Entries, Prize Pool, Payouts And More

The most awaited Main Event of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022  has been receiving an overwhelming response at its new home—Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. The late registration for the $10,000 Main Event Championship ended earlier today during Day 2d flight, and the event has got its final prize pool. 

Number of entries at WSOP 2022 Main Event

Amidst many speculations and projections, the final number of entries at the WSOP 2022 Main Event was 8,663. The number fell short of breaking the record of 8,773 entries at the WSOP 2006 Main Event.

Many projected that the Main Event would break the previous records this year, while some even suspected an entry-field of more than 10,000 players. However, at the end of the official registration period, the WSOP 2006 Main Event record remained undefeated.

We at Gutshot Magazine, too, hosted a poll on Twitter to know what our followers think about this year’s Main Event attendance breaking the previous record. Here’s what our poll suggested:

The 8,663 entries officially mark the second-highest entry field in the history of WSOP Main Events. It is marginally higher than the 8,569 entries of WSOP 2019 ME, which held the second-highest spot until today. The number of entries across flights gradually increased from 896 on Day 1a to 879 on Day 1b, then 1,860 on Day 1c and 4,370 on Day 1d. The numbers dropped during Day 2 flights with 2,789 entries on Day 2abc and 3,749 on day 2d, which was when the registrations ended.

WSOP 2022 Main Event Prize Pool

The 8,663 entries have successfully generated a final prize pool of $80,782,475. The $10,000 buy-in event currently has 519,780,000 chips in play. The prize pool, too, is just short of the WSOP 2006 Main Event, which had generated a prize pool of $82,512,162, and a little higher than the $80,548,600 prize pool of the WSOP 2019.

WSOP 2022 Payouts

The $80,782,475 prize pool will be divided among the top 1,300 players. The min-cash of $15,000 would be shared by the lowest 219 players (1,082nd to 1,300th places). The winner will get to take home a hefty prize of $10,000,000 up top. Additionally, he/she will also get the coveted WSOP Main Event bracelet along with 1,731.47 Player of the Year (POY) points. Another $10,000,000 would be shared by the runner-up and second runner-up in a 6:4 ratio.

The registrations on Day 2d remained open till the end of Level 7, which was two levels of 120 minutes each into the day. Hundreds of players registered late before the play resumed, but only after being stuck in a huge line circling around the Bally’s ballroom. Some players even had to wait up to two hours just to enter the event. Reportedly, the floor manager told PokerNews that there weren’t enough seats available. So players would get an entry only when someone busted. 

Every player received 60,000 chips in exchange for the $10,000 buy-in. Day 2 started with blinds 400-800, which meant the initial players in line would begin with a stack of 75 big blinds, but those who were last would start their game with just 50 big blinds.
