Day 1b of the 2014 World Series of Poker has just finished up after it brought in 2,144 players to add to that of the 771 that took part on Day 1a. This means there has been a total of 2,915 registrations this year, putting it around 30 more than last year and they are expecting Day 1c to be absolutely huge.
Trey Luxemburger was the player that finished top of the 1,300 survivors from Day 1b with a chip count of 193,450.
As for the notables on Day 1b, the likes of Erik Seidel, Matt Affleck, Marvin Rettenmaier, David Williams, Brian Hastings, Phil Galfond and Sorel Mizzi will all be heading into Day 2 with good stacks and will now be hoping to make a deep run in the event.

Worst summer ever poker wise since I came to Vegas for the first time. It’s only poker tho, life goes on and I’ll be back @WSOP next year.
