With 10,043 entries, $93,399,900 of prizepool, this year’s Main Event largely outgrew the 2006’s event with its 8,773 players and $82M of prizepool.

Here is the final hand against Steven Jones:

“Every year before this, I’ve been here from Event #1 to the last event,” Weinman said. “And by the time the Main Event comes around, I’m burnt out … I’ve said to many people, I don’t like this tournament. The structure is too good, I’m kind of over it for the summer. […] I was honestly on the fence about even coming back and playing this tournament”.
