To be considered an official WSOP event the field must have at least 22 entrants. That is how many people have currently committed to a potential $1 million buy-in for next years World Series. The winner will receive almost 9 million dollars and maybe a platinum bracelet. Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan and Johnny Chan are among the big names who have said they will compete.
11% of the prize pool will be donated to charity and the 10% rake that the casino takes for hosting events will be waved.
