The gap between 1st and 2nd is quite steep. A first place finish will pay out $8 000 000 and second takes home $4 658 452. Place 3-9 pays out between $1M and $2.5M. The payout structure was actually designed to pay out at least one million to every player at the final table. Because of this top-heavy payout structure there’s a great incitement to play aggressive and go for a top place finish.

Josephy could become the oldest main event winner since 1999

Cliff Josephy is not only the most merited player at the main event final table. He is also the oldest and if he would go on to win the tournament he’d become the oldest main event winner since Noel Furlong. Every main event winner the past eight years has been under 30 years old, writes tippat.se
