2005 WSOP Event #37: $1,000 No Limit Holdem with Re-buys

, 2005-07-11, by Mercy

The $1,000 entry into Event #36 represents only a fraction of a common player's investment into this tournament. Re-buys are allowed for a couple of rounds, and an add-on and double add-on is offered during the first break (an add-on is $1000 for 1000 chips and a double add-on is $2000 for 2000 chips). It is common for players to spend over $4,000 on this event between various re-buys and purchasing the add-on or double add-on.

Even after 9% of the prize pool was taken out of the prize pool for the house and the dealers, the prize pool was over $2.3 million off of 894 entries. This means the average player spent over $2500 on this event.

In the end, Jon Heneghan walked away with the gold bracelet and over $600,000.

Famous players that made the money include Barry Greenstein at 7th and Howard Lederer at 17th.
