Big 50 becomes record-breaking 50

The WSOP is no stranger to large tournament fields, with the Main Event regularly attracting well over 7,000 players and events like the Colossus consistently trebling that figure. Despite the name, the event commands a buy in of $500. The name Big 50 is in honour of the 50th anniversary of the World Series of Poker this year.

The Big 50 has certainly lived up to its name in terms of field size, with each of the four starting day flights adding thousands of players to the field. By the end of day 1c the field had already swelled to over 19,000 with the casino struggling to find enough rooms to cram the players into. By the end of day 1d the overall figure had breached the 26,000 mark. This smashed the previous record set by the Colossus event which attracted 22,374 runners back in 2015. read more
