Day 1c of the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Black Hawk $1,110 Main Event drew 302 entries, the biggest field of all three starting flights to bring the overall field up to 651. After 14 full levels and a few hands, the flight became the first all weekend to play to its scheduled finishing time. Despite the early finish due to a prior hard stop, the allotted timeframe was more than enough for Israel's Haim Or Krief (781,000) to bag the overall chip lead by a massive margin among the 43 that advanced.

Or Krief built up a stack of more than 500,000 by the final hour of the evening, appearing to be a near-lock for the end-of-day chip lead already and well in contention of Day 1b chip leader Michael Wyporowich's 556,000. Then, he turned a full house with pocket deuces and wound up playing for stacks with Anthony Bublitz, who was on his direct left with another one of the top stacks in the room. Or Krief put Bublitz all in and Bublitz called with a flush, resulting in a pot of more than 500K being sent to Or Krief shortly before the end of the night to vault him well clear of anybody else in the field.

Ryan Remington (478,000) and Corey Zedo (407,000) were the next-closest finishers, with Phanora Pham (376,000) and Max Young (294,000) completing the flight's top five counts.

Other notable finishers included John Sun (261,000), Alex Winter (178,000), Kane Lai (125,000), Vincent Moscati (48,000), and Jason Vanstrom (44,000). Plenty more failed to get through, including Danny Gonzales, Scott Stewart, Derek McMaster, Allen Kessler, and Cy Church.

A total of 83 players will return to Bally's Black Hawk Sunday at 11 a.m. to play down to a winner and compete for the top prize of $129,451 with the top 72 finishing in the money. PokerNews will be here to bring you all the way to the finish line, so be sure to come back for all of Sunday's action.

Six More Hands

HillKerby • Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Due to Friday's hard stop with 33:30 remaining in Level 15, the tournament clock has been paused with 3:30 remaining in Level 14. A total of six more hands will be played on all five remaining tables, two of which will be played to conclude Level 14 with the final four hands set to be played during Level 15.

Or Krief Takes Bublitz's Stack

Haim Or Krief

A single-raised pot between Haim Or Krief in the hijack and Anthony Bublitz in the cutoff took action heads up to a flop of {2-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. Or Krief continuation-bet 15,000 and Bublitz raised to 40,000, prompting Or Krief to three-bet to 110,000. Bublitz made the call.

The turn came {4-Clubs} and Or Krief jammed for Bublitz's remaining stack of more than 150,000. Bublitz went into the tank, letting out a huge sigh of an exhale before announcing a call and turning over {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

"Was that a call?" asked Or Krief, quickly receiving confirmation and wasting no time tabling {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}.

"I have one out," said a deflated Bublitz, with the two standing up and shaking hands before sweating the river, which fell {q-Spades} to send Bublitz to the rail and give Or Krief a commanding chip lead going to the end of the night.

Upon the completion of the hand, 45 players remained and the table broke with Or Krief racking up his chips, totaling more than 800K.

Heiberg Makes No Mistake

HillKerby • Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Jeff Heiberg pumped it up to 11,000 under the gun and received a call from Matt Myers on his direct left. Action then foled around to the small blind, who three-bet to 36,000. Heiberg called and Myers folded.

The flop came {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Heiberg slid his remaining stack forward onto the felt.

"Whoops," said Heiberg with a chuckle after realizing it was not yet his turn to act. He grabbed his chips and pulled them back.

"That good, huh?" asked the small blind in return after more than half a minute passed. He then folded and Heiberg took down the pot.
