The Main Event at $1,500 gathered 735 players who generated $1,103,091 for an initial guaranteed prizepool of $500,000.

After the two departure days, 99 players survived, among which 30 during the Day 1A who where joined on Sunday by the 66 survivors of the Day 1B. The chipleader of the second departure day, Arthur Morris, the one who succeeded the most to play poker well during these first days, is the leader at the start of the Day 2, with a stack of 585,500 chips.
