  • Adam Foster and Kaveh Tehrani lead the early flights of the second Seneca Summer Slam event.

The 2016 Seneca Niagara Falls Summer Slam rolled on Friday with Event #2: $200 No-Limit Hold'em kicking off.

The first of four starting flights in the event that boasts a $50,000 guarantee drew 106 entries on Friday. By the time 14 levels of play were through, a total of 18 players pushed on to Day 2 Sunday, when the field will combine and play down to a winner.

Adam Foster (188,400) bagged the chip lead finishing the flight on a heater. Jeff White (179,000) also bagged big after running good all day.

The second of four starting flights drew 152 entries Friday evening. That brought the total to 258 so far, putting the event well on its way to obliterating the guarantee, with two flights still to come.

By the time 14 levels of play were done, a total of 24 players pushed through to Sunday's Day 2. When combined with the 18 from Day 1a, that makes for 42 competitors who have advanced to Day 2.

Kaveh Tehrani (173,500) bagged the chip lead after a strong finish that saw him win a huge pot after getting it all in preflop with big slick versus nines and flushing out on the river in the day's final level. Steve Pisa (167,100) and Frank Gentile (156,700) also bagged big.
