Online Poker Tournament Turnouts...

A recent article in PokerNews posted some really amazing numbers that I had to pass on everyone here. That link is to the actual article in it's entirity.

What got me interested in the article in the first place were the numbers of players in these events, AND the prize pools awarded! Take a look at these numbers over thie past weekend:

PokerStars $500+30 event drew 2,768 players with a total pool of $1.3M

FullTiltPoker had 2,115 players in their $300K Guananteed event

Mansion had 684players in it's $110K guaranteed event

PartyPoker had 1,313 players in it's $200K Guaranteed event

Bodog had 1,909players in it's $200K event.

Those are HUGE numbers, especially when you consider that most of those touraments took place on Sunday and probably in the same time frames!
