World Series of Poker Main Event Updates: Attendance Back on Track After Day 1C

World Series of Poker Main Event Updates

Days 1C and 1D are traditionally the biggest of the World Series of Poker Main Event in terms of registration numbers and Day 1C has not disappointed. 

After a somewhat lackluster start that had just shy of 1000 registrants each of the first two days, Day 1C witnessed 2181 come on board.  This number does jive with last year’s attendance figures.

Organizers declared that Day 1D was expected to bring even more attendees and that numbers should exceed 6000, right on par with the last few years.

Many experts believed that the events of April 15 in which three of the largest online poker rooms were indicted in the US would result in a drastic drop in attendance, primarily a result of fewer online qualifier satellites and player funds still tied up in Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker.
