The third of four starting flights in the $200 No-Limit Hold'em $50,000 Guaranteed Event #1 on the 2015 Seneca Fall Poker Classic drew a whopping 181 entries and re-entries at the the Niagara Falls Poker Room today, outdrawing the previous two flights.

When added to the 249 from the first two flights Friday, this 430 total puts the event well past the guarantee already, with a fourth and final starting flight also underway this evening.

After 14 levels of play, just 26 more players survived with David Wiles bagging the biggest stack out of this flight.

Mike Rellinger took the lead heading into the late levels turning his loose-aggressive style and the {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs} into a full house and a big payday. He couldn't help himself, though, and played his way lout of the lead.

In the meantime, Wiles, who rose up practically telling one player he had a set, then showing him as much when he called with a gutshot, continued to accumulate chips late and bagged 248,400.

Others, including early leaders Christopher Gaddi and Mark Roberts also bagged big, while local legends like Nick Walker and Pat Tighe hit the rail.

Yong Wolfer and Jason Nablo were among the other local favorites earning a spot in Sunday's Day 2, where a total of 59 will start so far. At this point, everyone is still chasing Michael Davis and the massive 342,000-chip stack he built on Day 1a.

In the meantime, the event continues with the fourth and final flight that began at 6 p.m. local time, so stay tuned for continued coverage of the 2015 Seneca Fall Poker Classic Event #1 right here on PokerNews.

Girdelstone Triples

Jim Girdelstone
Jim Girdelstone

Jim Girdelstone open shoved for 20,700, getting pretty much called in two spots, with the big blind and the button getting in another 1,500 each.

Girdelstone had the worst of it with {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}, but was live against the {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}. Sure enough, he was the only one to make a pair on the {2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} board, tripling up as they head into this flight's final level.

Rellinger Rolling

Mike Rellinger
Mike Rellinger

Mike Rellinger got himself in a three-way pot with the {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, flopping a pair when it came {k-}{3-}{2-}.

One opponent bet 3,000, the other 6,000 and Rellinger called. Another call kept it three ways to the {7-} turn.

After a check, there was a 12,000-chip bet, Rellinger made it 28,000 and once the third player folded, the other shipped it in with {k-}{q-}.

Rellinger called with his two pair, boating up on the river to make sure of things and push past the 200,000-chip mark.

Break!

MartyDerby • Level 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante

The players are off on the final 10-minute break of this flight. When they return they will play two more 30 minute levels or down to 22, whichever comes first.

Oh My Gaddi!

MartyDerby • Level 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Christopher Gaddi has joined the growing group of players with six-figure stacks now.

He told PokerNews that outside of picking up quads over a full house early on, he's simply played a lot of small pots, adding up to his big stack.

Rather than get involved in a huge pots and big all-in confrontations, Gaddi has gone the small-ball route with much success so far.
