LAS VEGAS–For the first time since the UIGEA “devastated” the poker world, WSOP officials have given an, er, official pronouncement about the expected number of players for the 2007 WSOP main event. Not sure who it was, but a voice over the intercom announced that there are [inaudible] players in todays Day 1c … “So we’ll easily have more than 6,000.”

Poker bizzers breathe a sigh of relief to know that the lack of online qualipaloozas for American players doesn’t set the magic measuring stick back even a year … as 2007 will end up falling to a number bigger than 2005, when Joe Hachem won it
