Big Drop Off in Entries for Foxwoods $10K Event

by Lou on April 5, 2009

Is this a sign of the times or something else? While some poker tournaments had astonishingly good turnouts this year despite dire economic conditions, Foxwoods saw only 259 players entering their $10,000 buy-in tournament.
That’s a drop of 22 percent compared to last year, when 333 players showed up for Foxwoods’ big event.
That’s too bad, and I’m not sure anyone has a good handle about why this is happening. I’m sure the economy has something to do with it. Over the course of the last year, America has turned from a nation of consumers to a nation of savers, so there’s certainly less discretionary money going around around, but there may be other factors at play too—though I have no idea what they might be.
Maybe some of you readers from the New England area can enlighten us. I’d be interesting in knowing what’s up with this big a downturn in this event.
