Last year I won a ticket into the main event. I had never been so happy in my own life. I thought it I was going to have a good chance to win it this year, but unfortunately something came up and I was forced to sell my ticket. I got $ 11,200 for my ticket and travel. Instead of the full $ 12,500 value I received only 1300 bucks less for selling it. Which means, even if you're not planning on attending the world series of poker, if you win a ticket you can always sell it for a huge chunk of change.

Playing in this main event is just like winning 600+ single table sit n go's at one time. That's how you need to look at it.
