Although Palmer did well to surpass the 300,000-chip mark and finish as the flight's leader, he'll still trail Day 1a's Josh Lowing, who bagged up 326,500 on Friday.

Of course, not everyone who played made it through to Day 2, and some of those to bust included Kurt Jewell, Claude Purches, and Scott Schwalich.

Between the two Day 1 flights, the combined field size amounted to 229 entries, creating a prize pool of $229,000. The 23 survivors from Saturday will join the 13 folks that made it through Friday’s Day 1a flight for Day 2 on Sunday, and all eyes will be solely fixed on the $54,956 set to go to the winner.
