The Main Event of the edition 2014 of the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) attracts 6,683 players at the end of its third and final Day 1.

By the end of Day 1C, Eric Tracy finished atop the leader board of the Day 2 with 206,175 chips ahead of Martin Jacobson (2nd, 200,100) and Trey Luxemburger (3rd, 193,450), respectively chipleaders of Day 1A and 1B.
