Hold your thumb and your index finger just far enough apart so that you could be squeezing a grape. That's how close the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event came to breaking the record for the largest WSOP Main Event ever. With registration closing as Day 2C began, the official numbers are in and 8,569 players put this year's Main Event just 204 runners behind the all-time record set in 2006. That year, 8,773 runners created an $82,512,162 prize pool and Jamie Gold took home $12,000,000. This year, the prize pool hit $80,548,600 and the eventual winner will end up banking $10,000,000.
