Big Payouts at 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event

Players will be competing for almost double this stash at this year's WSOP.
The payout amounts for the World Series of Poker are unbelievable. There were 8,773 entrants staking 10,000 each for a shot at the title, which comes with a shiny bracelet and a cool $12 million dollars. Imagine if everyone that played in the Masters brought about 100,000 for a prize pool for the winner. Second place gets $6,102,499, all the way to 873rd place which takes home $14,597. This morning there are around 1400 players left that have each played 2 full days of poker against a widely amateur field. Each of the players still remaining probably has played the poker of their lives and combined it with some excellent luck. The problem with poker is that pocket aces, the best possible starting hand, lose once every nine times to 2-7 offsuit, the worst possible starting hand. It’s entirely possible to get your money in with the better hand in the WSOP a lot of the time, yet get suckered out and be watching before you know it.
