The numbers are high… I told you so

LAS VEGAS–The sun has set on the final registration day of the 2007 WSOP. Any dreams of winning a gold bracelet this year should now be terminated unless you’re one of the few left in the main event. This year thousands of players pushed between $1,000 and $50,000 per entry fee through the Amazon cage window for the most coveted award in the game of poker. With 54,000 paid entries into the 55 WSOP events, chances of winning a bracelet were much more difficult than earlier years that hosted a handful of tables.

Times have changed and while the Main Event entries took a dip, the previous trends were present with big crowds, long lines and large fields. Meaning one thing…poker ain’t going anywhere. Tangible numbers can soothe all those fears of losing their new best game of poker. And while the sun has disappeared beyond the Las Vegas skyline, one thing is for sure…just like Las Vegas at night, poker is still hot.
