What is the WSOP entry fee?

There are many different events in the WSOP (World Series of Poker), and the WSOP entry fee is different for each. Entry into the events can be between $1,000 and $50,000. There were 58 events this year. The biggest top spot prize was $8,711,956 for the main event (having had 6,865 entrants).

The $10,000 main event is the event that holds most interest. Thousands of people enter and try to win a bracelet and a multimillion dollar prize. The winner of the main event is often referred as being the poker World Champion.

Here is an idea of the other WSOP entry fees for the different events:

There are a few $1,000 events, including a few $1,000 No limit Hold’em games, a $1,000 Ladies no limit Hold’em championship and a $1000 Seniors no limit Hold’em championship.

On the other side there are a few events with a fee of $10,000 and $50,000. The $25,000 Heads up no limit Hold’em championship saw Brit Jake Cody beat off 128 entrants and walk away with $851,192. Ten of the 58 events had an entry fee of $10,000, including $10,000 pot limit Hold’em championship, $10,000 Omaha Hi-low split 8 or better championship, $10,000 2-7 draw lowball championship, $10,000 seven card stud championship and the main event the $10,000 no limit Hold’em championship.

The fees have a huge range making it possible for many poker players from different backgrounds take part - lower value tables for decent players and high value tables for people that love the game and have the ability to take them far.
