Registration for this event closed following the dinner break, and the numbers are in. A total of 126 players turned up for this first WSOP Mixed-Max event. At €10,400 a pop, their entries have created a prize pool worth €1,209,600 plus one gold bracelet. If a player can manage to conquer the 9- and 6-max days, they'll be through to the heads-up bracket and guaranteed a payday. This pay structure sets up rather nicely as all 16 players who survive Day 2 will be in the money.
It's worth €26,831 to make it to Day 3, and the eight players eliminated in their first heads-up match will earn that amount. The next four to go take €55,248, and that guarantees six figures to the final four semifinalists -- €112,989 apiece. Advance to the final, and you'll earn at least €209,285, and the lucky guy or gal who outlasts the rest will pocket €338,697.
And WSOP gold.
