Event Comparisons - WSOP 2012/2013

In these turbulent times in the global poker industry, the WSOP stands out as an critical indicator of poker's current strength. The 2012 World Series was shrouded under the cloud of Black Friday, with many players still disillusioned by the seizure of their online funds. With the advent of legalised online poker in two US states and more progress in prospect, it will be interesting to see whether the entry numbers to the 2013 renewal of the WSOP reflect these external factors.
