Ky Nguyen, who won the WPT Gardens Poker Championship in late May, is joined by Erik Seidel, Scott Eskenazi, Qing Liu, Jonathan Jaffe, David Paredes, Adam Weinraub, and Tyler Patterson.

A few players who have had big scores at Wynn Las Vegas are also in the field are also back to try and catch lightning in a bottle for a second time. Andrew Moreno, who won the Wynn Summer Classic Wynn Millions in 2021 for $1.46M and then finished second in the Wynn Summer Classic Championship in 2022 for another $460,529, is in the field as is Ethan ‘Rampage’ Yau, who took down the WPT World Championship $25,000 High Roller last December, and WPT Prime Championship winner Stephen Song.

Former WSOP Main Event winners Joe McKeehen, Espen Jorstad, and Hossein Ensan are also in the field.

Isaac Haxton, who busted the WSOP Main Event earlier this week like most of these players, seems to be a little bit more comfortable at Wynn Las Vegas than he was at the Horseshoe.

The $10,500 buy-in event carries a $10 million guarantee with three different starting flights.
