The event endowed with a re-entry format gathered a total field of 415 participants, among whom 183 registered in the Day 1A. At the end of this first day of competition, they were only167 players in the running. Jaime Rubinsteyn was on the top of the list with 234,600 chips in hands. Chipleader of the Day 1B, he has challenged numerous professionals of poker following the example of David Paredes, Adam Levy and Andy Frankenberger, who have attempted their chance again in the Day 1B, after an elimination during the Day 1A. It was also the case of the former WPT champion Shawn Cunix, Marsha Wolak as well as Aaron Massey.
The champion of the WPT Legends of Poker 2013, Jordan Cristos, is also in the top 10 of the field of the Day 2.
