Yes, the numbers are stable. It's a great event to attend.

I'm wondering how the numbers compare to the pre-split era? I recall open singles being 1750 - 1800 players in the 2001 - 2004 timeframe. Are we seeing 20% less overall?

It appears as if the Men's/Mixed Master Team event is no longer a round robin... is this the first year of that, or have I just not been noticing recent changes?

I was looking forward to getting in a decent amount of play, but it looks like it's a straight double elimination bracket?

Thanks,
Steve

And the site only shows 13 teams in Men's Masters with 2 TBA and 1 BYE. Kind of confusing.....and the stats in this thread show 17 teams.

Steve (and others);

The masters team is a double elimination to the final eight teams - then plays a round robin for the winners etc.

The teams not reaching the final eight - play another double elimination. They will be playing a lot!

I think the numbers being stable is pretty impressive. Given the change in economic climate from winter 2008 to winter 2009 (when the decisions to go would have been made), I think stable numbers means increasing interest.

I wonder how many other Vegas activities are as big in spring 2009 as they were in spring 2008?

In this economic climate I think it's a great showing. I wish I could be there and enjoy the fun!

However, I looked back and noticed 1750 in MOS in 2001 versus 1377 this year. The number grew to 2015 in MOS for 2004 (the last pre-split event). So, where did those 600+ players disappear to over the last 4 - 5 years?

I also see similar differences in all of the other divisions as well. I don't see those as moving to the ACS event based on the numbers I have seen for them in the past. Has the APA numbers increased? Just wondering how to explain the change from the great growth of the event through the late 1990's and early 2000's.
