WSOP Colossus 2015
There were a total of 22,374 buy-ins from 14,284 registered players making the event a WSOP record for biggest single event.
Out of the playing field almost 40% of players had never played a WSOP event but due to the low buy-in it was affordable for most players to enter.
During the WSOP Colossus event which took place between May 28 to June 3, there were over 362,425 poker chips used, 982 WSOP dealers and 4,480 decks of cards.
There was a lot of controversy around the WSOP Colossus payout structure as it paid out 10% of the field which was 2,241 players in the money. This resulted in a first place prize of only $638,880, far less than what it would have been if they had used a standard payout structure.
The World Series of Poker also received criticism for the amount of rake ($1,454,310) taken was more than the first place prize.
