Day 1 D of WSOP Main Event Experience Rush of Last Minute Registrants

Thousands of players registered for the Day 1D of the 2009 world series of poker Main Event on July 6th, 2009. Day 1 D is the last 1st day in the playing field, which means that the participants that had not registered that day are left out of the WSOP Main Event this year.

After a slide down in the numbers from last year on Day one A and one B, Day one C saw a considerable resurgence with nearly 1,700 participants. Day one D had been an even larger success, attracting a total of 2,809 players, bringing the total number of participants for the 2009 WSOP Main Event to 6,494 players. But the problem is that the deluge of players caused Day one D to sell out and hundreds of participants were turned away with the Amazon room as well as the Brasilia and Miranda rooms full.

Even some poker table was moved out of the Rio Casino and Hotel to the main casino facility. The poker players that managed to get into the playing field created the busiest day at the World Series of Poker. Every poker room is filled with tables, camera crews from ESPN and spectators. Poker pro Bertrand Grospellier was one of the lucky ones to make it on the final day.

Day one A attracted a total of 1,116 participants, while Day one B attracted 873 participants. A total of 1,696 participated in Day 1C and the considerable turnout for Day1 D brings the total number of participants to 6,494.
