If you've played in the same Birmingham cardrooms I have you'll know that there are plenty of players oblivious to the action.

"Is it on me?"

I wouldn't sweat the 771 number for day 1a. It's become more and more popular over the years for people to wait until the last day 1 to enter. Last year only ~950 people entered day 1a, but ~3400 entered day 1c. Also, back in 2009 over 3000 people showed up for the last day 1 when they only had room for 2700, and they ended up having to turn away 500 people.

I expect the trend to continue this year, with day 1c filling the Rio to capacity and putting the field over 6k entrants.

they won't get under 6K but they also won't get close to 7K.

6187 entrants is my guess

Um, no. Some tables were 6-handed. There were even some hands played heads-up until players and dealers were told this wasn't supposed to happen...

This'll be lowest main event entrance in the last 8 years, mark my words. Probable under 6K entrants. Poker is dying in front of us.

Def under on 7k
Slightly under again from last year

No way that the 10m first place is bringing people out in droves. If you have 10k laying around, you were playing the main event. Doesn't matter if first was 8.5 or 12 million

Uh this.

Don't think they will have 4k people on Monday (prolly closer to 3k) but lol. "Zomg poker is dying! Only 6k entrants? Not even worth it!"

gonna be interesting to see what happens with the gtd 10M for first if they get way under their projected number of entrants. could end up with a pretty gross situation where first place is 10M and 2nd is well under 5M.

Yeah I could see that. I know WSOP doesn't allow deals but feel like when they have the long break between HU play, it's very possible a deal is secretly made.

I think a 3 or even 4 handed private deal is very possible if no really good players make it that far.

Yaron Wasserman recorded his first and only cash at the World Series of Poker in 2005, finishing 415th in the Main Event for $16,055. After doubling up on one of the very first hands on Day 1b, he's in prime position to make another run.

According to Wasserman, he and Dustin Graves put in 17,000 each before a flop of {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. When our reporter arrived, the remainder Graves' stack - roughly 13,000 - went in the middle, and Wasserman made a quick call.

Wasserman: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Graves: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

Wasserman faded an ace on both the turn ({j-Hearts}) and the river ({4-Diamonds}), and Graves was eliminated.

"I knew he had aces," Wasserman said, dragging the pot. "I just wanted to see if I could hit a king on the flop."

"You were drawing to one out," said a player at the table. "I had ace-king."

Dude called off ~17k pre to try and hit a 2 outer and win 13k more.

Poker dead. Yup.
