Not even a week has passed since we reported about the record-breaking cash game pot on GG network, and now we have witnessed another one, this time a tournament one.
Last year the WSOP Championship had the biggest number of entries in its BIG 50 tournament, with a buy-in of $500. There was a total of 28.371 entries. But this year’s WSOP Online series on GG Network managed to beat this record at its first tournament, the event #32 $100 The Opener, with a total of 29.306 entries. The winner of the tournament has won a staggering $265,880.
The event #71 Big 50 [Final Day] with $1M GTD has broken the record yet again and set the bar at a total of 44.576 entries, with a total prize pool of enormous $2,050,496.
The final table featured 9 players. They came from six different countries, with one player from Thailand, Australia, United Kingdom, Argentine, Netherlands, and four players from China. The heads-up match featured two Chinese players, Zhao and Feng.
In the last hand, Zhao went all-in with Kd 6h and got called by Feng with Ad 6d. With the board being Jh Qh 2d 9s Jc, it meant that Huahuan Feng became the winner of the tournament, winning a WSOP bracelet and a staggering $223,381.
