Main Event[edit]

There were 512 entrants to the main event. Each paid $10,000 to enter the tournament. The 2000 Main Event was the first time the total entries of the Main Event surpassed 500 players.

Ferguson had a 10 to 1 chip lead when starting his heads-up against Cloutier. After a back-and-forth battle, Ferguson decided to call Cloutier's AQ all-in with his own A9. When a 9 appeared on the river, Ferguson had beaten the tournament favourite.
