Anyone have an idea why WSOP entries are up so much? Booming economy or something more specific?

It’s the 50th anniversary this year, so they started a big tournament with a lower entry fee. The economy remains healthy, but the main event has been bigger, no?

Main event was 2nd largest ever this year. 2005 or 06 was the biggest, can't remember which.

Friend of the forum DanDruff finished in the money this year, think it was 158th out of about 8,500 for almost 60k. Think there were 35 left playing this morning.

How would you like to be this guy?

I thought the all in was well played by Su to put the pressure back on Greenwood. He could have had a Jack or even a flush draw. Curious that Su would call a, presumably, big bet by Greenwood to protect his pocket Aces pre-flop. Maybe Greenwood tried to slow play his monster. Su still had 8 outs at the river, and hit it.

I think I recall hearing on the broadcast that you could buy in for the 10K in the main event all they way up to the day 2 sessions which take a few days to get to technically. This allowed people to take only 1 week instead of 2 off of work on a deep run
