Stephen Baker Leads After Moneymaker Road to PSPC Day 1c

Another 139 players entered Moneymaker's Road to PSPC 2020 on Day 1c, and just 21 advanced to Day 2.

Leading the way is Stephen Baker who sits with the overall chip lead after three flights, bagging 588,000. His cause was helped after a stunning hand in which he three-bet jammed with ten-five suited into pocket aces, only to river a flush.

He was also responsible for bursting the bubble after his pocket eights fell behind to ace-king on the flop, but he went runner-runner to ensure that he would sit in the chip lead ahead of Day 2.

"It was a bit of a loose shove," Baker said about the ten-five hand after bagging. "There was bubble pressure but I'd already gotten up to 200k. There was a hand where I made quads in a three-way all in so that certainly helped."

Baker isn't the only player over 500,000 in chips, with Ahmad Jerjis (546,000) and David Gough (pictured below) (537,000) also sitting pretty. Then there is a substantial drop back to PokerStars LIVE at the Hippodrome Ambassador Kelly Saxby (308,000).

Notables to play and bust on Day 1c included Chris Moneymaker, James Hartigan, Craig Sweden, Asif Warris, Antoine Saout and Ben Martin.

Day 2 gets underway at the revised time of 12 p.m. on Saturday, with all survivors of the four flights combining for the first time.

Doshi Doubles Up

will_shill • Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

With 22 players remaining, one off bagging for Day 2, Dhruv Doshi moved all in for 73,000 from the small blind.

The big blind tank-called with {k-Hearts}{j-Spades} as Doshi showed {a-Spades}{9-Spades}

The board ran out {3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades} as the big blind missed a flush draw to allow Doshi to double through him.
