2011 World Series of Poker Main Event Attendance

Day 1A of the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event has drawn 897 people.  Last year’s first day attendance number was not that much higher at 1125.

Organizers of the WSOP expect more than last year’s mark of 7319 despite the events of April 15 Black Friday indictments against PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker.  The later two are yet to pay back US players. 

The first day’s attendance is typically the lowest.  Last year’s number jumped up around 400 but the final two days drew approximately 1000 more.

3209 people had registered as of Day 1A.
