WSOP 2012 Main Event: Phil Hellmuth predicted the participation of 15,000 players

We approach slowly to the 58th and last tournament of the 42nd edition of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) of this year 2011 at Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Moreover, this race of the Main Event is reported live on ESPN2 for the followers of the discipline who couldn't move in this place. Among the commentators of this final phase, there is the great poker player Phil Hellmuth, who didn't get a good results during this new edition of the famous circuit. Thus, this lack of victory for this edition 2011 let him only win a second place at the World Series.

Are these reasons the origin of his disproportionate comment on the next edition of the World Series of Poker 2012 ? Indeed, in his direct column on ESPN2, the big name of poker, Phil Hellmuth announced that the 43rd edition of the WSOP, on 2012 more precisely, the main event of the competition will probably record the greatest turnout of all time with the participation of 15,000 players. Furthermore, he also estimate a prize pool ever collected of $ 20 million. This daring prediction of the American poker player would greatly exceed the current record attendance of the WSOP 2006, which gathered of a field of 8,773 competitors. As a reminder, despite the serious consequences caused by the Black Friday, the WSOP 2011 Main Event was successful because this year's tournament gathered 6,865 players.
