Moreover, the owners of WSOPC rings and top 100 best participants of last year's WSOP POY race had the opportunity to take part in the tournament without rake by paying $10 000 entry fee. The prize money received from all such entries was added to the prize pool of $1 million.
Only 20 players out of 130 participants reached ITM zone. Adam Owen was the last player to leave the tournament without payment (21 place).
It is also worth noting the following participants: Brian Altman (16th place and $17 869), Matt Stout (17th place and $16 264), Mike Matusow (10th place and $22 898) and others.
