Allyn Jaffrey ShulmanA total of 4,407 players turned out for the 2013 World Series of Poker Seniors Event, beating last year’s 4,128. This year is a record turnout.

The $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament will award a massive first-place prize of $634,809, which will be one of the largest of the entire summer festival. A total of 441 players will make the money, earning at least $1,903 from the $3,966,300 prize pool.

The Seniors Event at the WSOP attracts more players these days than any other live tournament outside of Las Vegas.

Last year, Card Player’s own Allyn Jaffrey Shulman took first place, winning her first gold bracelet and the massive $603,713 payday. It was the second largest single payout to a female player in WSOP history, behind Annette Obrestad’s win in the 2077 WSOP Europe main event for £1,000,000.
