The World Poker Tour (WPT) Legends Of Poker event at the Bicycle Casino has begun with a new incarnation as a $3,500 re-entry event and after Day 1a, there will be 148 players returning from the huge starting field of 322.

Matt Berkey leads the way into Day 2, having bagged up almost a quarter-million in chips by the end of play.

He is followed by several notable names including November Niner Soi Nguyen, who challenges for the chip lead as the only other player over the 200,000 milestone. Also in the top-ten chip counts are Tyler Cornell and Dan O’Brien.

Tonight sees Day 1b begin with Andy Frankenberger, WPT Season IX Player Of The Year, joining the fray. In addition, any players from Day 1a who didn’t make it to Day 2 can re-enter for another $3,500.
