So then if there were 300K, is that approximately 600K?
The point was simply that the term shishim ribo is not an exact number where if "there was 1 person less its a beracha levatala."

I just heard from one of the boys the gemara thing. I can't answer that q. I'm fine with saying he made a mistake if he said the bracha because I know many rabbis which didn't say it

So you were more comfortable with the theory that he did something that makes no sense than assuming he had wrong information about how many people were standing there?

There are shitos in the reshonim that even by yotzei mitzrayim 600K was an approximation.

http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/headlines-breaking-stories/216032/hagaon-harav-yitzchok-zilberstein-shlita-to-recite-a-bracha-at-million-man-atzeres.html
lol  did you read the article you quoted??

"It is explained that on the one hand, 600,000 or more are expected to attend. On the other hand, one cannot be certain and in addition, one will not actually see 600,000 at one time. Rav Zilberstein stated that in our to be yotzei in line with all opinions, in line with the psak Halacha of the Chassam Sofer and in line with the practice of the Ponevezh Rov regarding the bracha of a Pidyon HaBen. One should learn the Halachos of the bracha and in this limud one should recite the bracha with Shem U’Malchus."

ie, it was not based on a possible (yet unnamed and probably non-existent) source that says shishim ribo could be a rough estimate.

MODS for heavens sakes please dump this trashy thread in meshy's shroom lounge, you guys sound like 2 year olds, why debate the numbers, who cares if it was 100,000 or 1 million, if you want an argument then debate the issue not the numbers
