All in all, not a bad turn-out for the 2012 WSOP $50,000 Player’s Championship.
When registration closed on Monday, a total of 108 entered the event. This was down from last year (a surprisingly high 128) but up from the surprisingly low 2009 event (98).
First place will bank $1,451,527. Second will earn $896,935.
