While speculation abounds regarding the number of players who'll show up for the Main Event in July, the numbers for the 2011 WSOP as a whole have been up as a whole thus far, something that seems to happened each and every year.

On the contrary, the numbers for this particular event have declined each year since 2005. There are two primary reasons for this, the first being the buy-in was raised from $5,000 to $10,000 back in 2008. Second, the field is tough and only seems to get tougher. As Todd Witteles noted in a tweet: "Only 103 players so far in this. 10k pricetag steep post-Black-Friday, especially for tough event."

Last year saw 171 runners, a number we expect to hit by the time late registration closes.
