|Chris Orme - Chip Leader of Flight B|
Chris Orme ended as the Flight B chip leader with 233,500. Orme started building early in the day and took the chip lead in Level 3 after sending a player home holding a set of jacks against his opponent's two pair. Orme then went on to eliminate Galen Hall shortly after, pushing him to the head of the pack. Orme was always one of the top three to four biggest stacks throughout the day.
Coming in second from Flight B is Benny Bianco, with 207,100. Julian Sacks rounds out the top three, ending the night with 195,800.
Over the course of the day many notables fell including Michael Dobbs, Vanessa Selbst, Joe Heinzmann, John Caputo, and Laurie Hilton. All of these players still have the option to buy in directly to Day 2 on Sunday at 11 am if they so choose.
James Frangoulidis was the only player to bag in both flights. He bagged 21,400 in Flight A, and then bagged 37,600 in today's Flight B. Since this is a best stack forward event, he will carry only his higher stack forward to Day 2.
Here is a look at the 73 players advancing from Flight B (by chip count):
|Wong, She Lok||131,500|
|St. Vincent, Brad||101,500|
