Official statistics from the 41st World Series of Poker currently running at the Rio in Las Vegas indicate that through the first 56 events, there have been 65,647 entries, surpassing last year’s total entries including the main event of 60,875. And this year’s main event registration numbers have yet to be recorded!
I thought interest in casino poker might be slowing last year with the 8% drop in TV ratings. Maybe, I was wrong. It can happen. Maybe people still have dreams of a dollar and a chip.
