According to the General, he knocked a player out shortly before the last break and is now sitting with 128,000, one of the biggest stacks in the room. 

Apparently the General limped with pocket twos, and there were six people to see the Q♠82 flop.  General bet 4,000, a player in middle position called, a player in later position called, and another player shoved all in for 30,000. With action back on the General, he re-shoved over the top, and the two players in between both folded.  One of the players that folded said that he had king-queen, and the other one showed A5.

General showed his pocket twos for a set, and his opponent held 63 for a flush draw.

The 3♠ turn and 4♣ river were safe for the General, and his opponent was sent to the rail.

The General - 128,0000

There are five players that have called 800 to see the 10♠6♣3♣ flop.

It checks around to Andrew Lauer in the cutoff who bets 2,700, and only one player in middle position calls.

The turn is the 4♠, and both players check.

The river is the 4♣. The player in middle position checks, and Lauer bets 6,200. The players pauses and looks at the board for nearly a minute, and opts to muck.

"That was a pretty good flop for me," Lauer says as he turns over J♣10♣, having flopped top pair and a flush draw.

Andrew Lauer - 35,000

The field will play down to the 52 players before bagging and tagging later tonight.  Those 52 players will join the 33 players that advanced in Flight A, the 33 that advanced in Flight B, and the 32 that advanced in yesterday's Flight C, and will play Day 2 on Wednesday at 12:00pm.  All players that make Day 2 will return in the money, and any player that bags in multiple flights will take home $1,200 for each additional stack they bag, with only their largest stack advancing to Day 2. So far, only one player has bagged in multiple flights, James Frangoulidis, but that number may increase as there are plenty of players in today's flight that have already bagged in previous flights.
