A field of 195 entries took their shot at advancing to Sunday’s Day 2, and the $300k guarantee was hit an hour before registration closed. Play wrapped up at the end of level 14 as scheduled, with just under 18% of the field remaining.

Other notables to make it to Day 2 include RGPS Ambassadors Ray Henson (214,00), David Tuchman (147,000), and Jamie Kerstetter (107,000) as well as Brian Frenzel (155,000), and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Yuval Bronshtein (71,000).

Players that unfortunately did not find a bag were RGPS Ambassadors Kris Burchfield and Jonathan Gaviao, as well as Joey Garguilo.

The final of the three opening flights will take place Friday, with a starting time at noon. Players who failed to advance Thursday and Friday will have another shot at making it to Sunday’s final day of play, and even those who did make it through Day 1ab can hop in again in hopes of accumulating a bigger stack to take into Sunday instead of their total from this flight.

Stay tuned to PokerNews for our continuing coverage of the event until a champion is crowned on Sunday at the action-packed bestbet Jacksonville!
