WSOP 2006 vs 2007

How many players have entered the WSOP tournaments this year compared with last year?

The trend appears to be more players in NLHE, down substantially in all other events, including LHE. The exceptions are $1500 LO8 (up 3%), $5000 PLHE (up 5%) and $2500 NLHE (down 21%).

An interesting question is whether the NLHE players in the preliminaries are coming at the expense of the main event. The median guess in the 2+2 "guess the number of ME entrants" appears to be around 7400, so "the market" expects about a 15% decrease.
