40 Players Advance From Large Day 1c Field

gqzdaddy • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

After 14 levels of play here on Day 1c, 40 players have made their way through to Day 2. Entries closed following the break after the end of level nine and, as expected, it was another large day for entries and the final number for Day 1c was 215.

Of the 40 moving on, Nik Stone leads the way with a healthy 290,000 in chips. Michael Griebe finished second in chips and bagged up 283,000. Thomas Klein (267,500), Henry Tran (228,000) and Richard Tapper (213,500) are also advancing with nice stacks. Other notables advancing to Day 2 are Jean Gaspard (183,500), Michael Ross (144,000) and Patrick Steele (78,000).

Notables that entered Day 1c but failed to advance included Nick Guagenti, Allen Kessler and Bill Romer.

Day 2 will begin bright and early on Sunday and a total of 98 players have advanced on to the second and final day of action.

Join PokerNews back here at 10 a.m. Eastern on Sunday where we will bring you the action as the latest MSPT main event plays down to a winner.

Play has completed for the day and we will have full chip counts and a recap posted shortly.

Mink Gets Back Into Things With a Double Up

gqzdaddy • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Eric Mink moved all in for 38,100 preflop and was called by an opponent.

Mink: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Opponent: {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}

"King in the window," Mink said as the flop came {k-Spades}{4-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}, giving Mink the lead. The {q-Diamonds} turn and {3-Spades} river kept him safe and his stack is a little more comfortable now.

Woodman Wins Race for a Double

gqzdaddy • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Griff Woodman
Griff Woodman

A player open-shoved all in from the cutoff and Griff Woodman called from the big blind after some thought.

Woodman: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

Opponent: {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

The {2-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop was no help for Woodman, but the {j-Spades} turn vaulted him into the lead and the {6-Spades} river secured the much needed double.

We picked up the action with a completed board of {j-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Spades}{k-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and Jean "Prince" Gaspard bet 17,000. Demian Poll considered his options for a moment before eventually putting out a raise to 39,000. Gaspard made the call and turned over {a-Clubs}{k-Spades} which bested Poll's {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}.
