Day 1d of the World Cup of Cards Event #1: NL Hold'em Quantum is complete. Tuesday evening's flight attracted another 56 entries to Playground Poker Club in Kahnawake, QC. This was the fourth of ten starting flights for the $200,000 guaranteed event.

The unique event features multiple buy-in levels with a different percentage making Day 2 for each. Day 1d had an entry fee of $250 with 10% of the field moving on. There were six spots up for grabs, each receiving a $400 bonus for qualifying.

Heading into the final table the two chip leaders, Jonathan Bussieres and David Cadoche, had both previously qualified for Day 2, each bagging stacks on Day 1c. As a special reward, anyone who qualifies for Day 2 multiple times will receive a $1,500 bonus for each stack they forfeit, in addition to the $400 prize.

Both Bussieres and Cadoche would be successful in their attempt and walked away Tuesday night with $1,900. Having already bagged a top stack, Bussieres was unable to improve but will remain among the leaders heading into Day 2. Cadoche, on the other hand almost tripled his previous stack making a huge improvement.

Kyle Janisse ended play with the biggest stack, bagging just under 300,000. Through four flights, Janisse sits in the top five overall. Here is how the Day 1d survivors stacked up:
