The fourth and final starting flight in the $200 No-Limit Hold'em $50,000 Guaranteed Event #1 at the 2015 Seneca Fall Poker Classic drew a healthy 169 entries and re-entries to the the Niagara Falls Poker Room today.

What that means is a total of 599 entries over four starting flights created a guarantee-smashing $96,738 prizepool that will pay 54 spots with $22,447 set aside for the winner.

After 14 levels of play in this flight, 31 more players survived and they will join the 59 through from the first three flights in returning to play to a winner Sunday.

Todd Saffron ran hot and grabbed the chip lead heading into the late levels. In the end he fizzled a little, doubling up a number of short stacks and missing out on bagging this flight's lead.

That spot belongs to Kevin Reyes, who held with a set of kings against a nut-flush draw to build a stack and cruised to a stack of 223,000 over the last level of the night.

Other big stacks heading into Day 2 from this group included Nick Walker, Deitrich Kuhlmann, Casey Smith.

Day 2 will kick off at 11 a.m. local time Sunday with a total of 90 players, the 54-player money bubble within sight and Day 1a chip leader Michael Davis and his massive 342,000-chip stack still on top.

Smith's Kings Kill The Queens

MartyDerby • Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Casey Smith
Casey Smith

Toronto, Canada's Casey Smith raised it up and there was a three-bet right behind him. A third player cold four-bet all in and after Casey called his almost 60,000-chip stack off, the player on his left did as well.

Smith had the {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts} and was in the enviable position of both his shorter stacked opponents holding the {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts} and {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades} respectively.

The board ran out {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} bringing little in the way of surprises and as his opponents hit the rail, Smith vaulted up to a spot among the late leaders.

Scott Treutlein

Scott Treutlein has moved into the chip lead, getting the best of a typical John Stempien blow up over at Table 8.

Treutlein became the beneficiary of most of Stempien's stack making fours full of seven against his top pair.

The rest went to a third party making another boat shortly thereafter,
