With 1496 Players, Why Is This Main Event So Popular?

• Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

As the dust settles on what’s left of the registration desk, which currently lies in pieces after processing a record number of players in the space of 48 hours, it’s worth taking a step back to ask just what’s behind this enormous surge for EPT100.
For the record some 1,496 players walked through the tournament door, stumping up €5,000 as they did so. Taking the average height, if you laid each player on the floor, head to toe, they would stretch from the doors of Casino Barcelona to the foot of the Sagrada Familia, still leaving a few spare to reach the gift shop. That, as the PokerStars Blog reports, is more than 2.6km away.
