After 15 levels of play, the second of three flights in The Mid-States Poker Tour $1,100 Main Event at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort in Iowa has concluded. A total of 265 entrants gave their money for a chance to make the second day, but only 35 made it through their trials of the flight. The guarantee has been met and surpassed with the 379 total entrants, creating a current prize pool of $367,630. With tomorrow’s flight expected to be the biggest, the prize pool will in all likelihood see a massive boost.

Leading the was South Dakota native Jon Maras who ended the day with 567,000. Maras obtained most of his chips in a confrontation with Bradley Beetz and from there on, he remained at the top of the leaderboard. Maras had a runner up finish in an MSPT in 2015 and is now looking to better that finish in this tournament.

Bill Brudenell ended the day just behind him with 548,000, closely followed by WPT champion Mark Davis who bagged 527,000, and Jonathan Johnson who bagged 515,000. This tight cluster of four at the top, represent the only players in the tournament who bagged more than half a million chips. They hold a more than 100,000 chip gap between themselves and the next closest player.

Defending champion Craig Trost was unable to find a bag in this flight. Others who’s fortunes turned sour included Aaron Johnson, Michael Puccio, DJ Buckley, Rob Wazwaz, and Matt Morfitt. MSPT Player of the year competitors John Dennehey and CJ Peake were unable to secure a bag this flight, meaning their last chance to acquire points this tournament will depend on them bagging in tomorrow’s flight.

The 35 surviving players will join the 13 from Day 1a on Sunday at 11 am. The clock will return to level 14 with blinds at 2,000/4,000 and a 4,000 ante with 10:10 left on the level.

Kinder Finds The Kindest River

Level 14 : Blinds 2,000/4,000, 4,000 ante
Martin Kinder
Martin Kinder

A player opened to 11,000 from the hijack and action folded around to Martin Kinder on the button who moved all in for 53,000 which saw action fold back to the initial raiser who called.

Martin Kinder: {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{7-Hearts}

The flop of {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{7-Spades} pushed Kinder close to the door, but the turn {5-Diamonds} offered him some hope in the form of a straight draw. The river {8-Spades} completed his straight and Kinder went from very little equity to winning the pot.

Davis Shoves The Turn

Level 14 : Blinds 2,000/4,000, 4,000 ante
Mark Davis

Michael Youngman raised to 8,000 from the hijack and Mark Davis called on the button.

The flop came out {2-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Youngman continued for 6,000 which Davis called.

When the {4-Hearts} peeled off on the turn Youngman sized up to 35,000. Davis responded by moving all in for 233,000 and Youngman asked "you don't want me to bluff do you?" Davis shook his head, "I think that option is off the table." Youngman pondered his decision before ultimately putting his hand into the muck, ceding the pot to Davis.

Andy Rogowski

Craig Trost moved all in from the small blind for 32,000 and in the big blind Andy Rogowski called to put him at risk.

Craig Trost: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Andy Rogowski: {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

The board ran out {j-Spades}{4-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Spades} and Rogowski made a better two pair with his ten high versus Trost's six high and the defending champion will have to play tomorrow's flight if he wants to make Day 2.
