As was widely anticipated as a result of the strict anti-online gambling legislation passed in the U.S. in 2006, the field for the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event was lower than the record-setting tournament from last year.Still, the 6,358 entrants make up the second largest live poker tournament of all time, allowing the winner to receive a robust $8.25 million.

Every player at the final table will earn more than half a million dollars and the final five will all win over a million.So, nobody will break Jamie Gold’s record haul of $12 million, but neither will he, as he was eliminated on Day 1.
