Latest 2011 WSOP Updates: Attendance up from 2010

2011 WSOP

As Gambling911.com noted yesterday, one of the most amazing aspects of the 2011 WSOP has been an increase in attendance.  Doomsday prognosticators suggested that recent events such as the April 15 indictments of three major online poker rooms and lack of payment processors resulting in slow payouts across the board could result in dismal attendance records.  Couple this with the limited online satellites that made up a rather large percentage of past World Series of Poker attendance. 

Instead we are seeing that most of the event attendance is up.

Six events have increased.   The $500 casino employee’s event had the largest increase at just over 17 percent.   We also witnessed double-digit growth at the $1,500 six-handed no-limit hold’em event (14.4 percent growth), $1,500 Omaha eight-or-better event (13.1 percent growth), and the $1,500 deuce-to-seven lowball event (10 percent growth).  Other increases occurred with the $5,000 no-limit hold’em event (9.2 percent growth), and the $1,500 limit hold’em event (8 percent growth).

Declines occurred at three of the nine events.  The $1,500 seven-card stud tournament witnessed the biggest drop off in attendance since last year with a 12.5 percent decrease. 

The $10,000 pot-limit hold’em world championship was down 7.1 percent and the low buy-in tournaments ($1,000 no-limit hold’em) took a 3.8 percent hit.
