The opening day flights of the World Series of Poker Circuit Planet Hollywood $1,700 Main Event are complete. Day 1b wrapped up Sunday night, with 440 total entries coming through Planet Hollywood Las Vegas for the second of the two Day 1 flights.

Those 442 entries were trimmed down to 90 by the end of the night, and some of the players bagging big included Ruben Chappell (330,000) who ended the night as the Day 1b chip leader.

Other big Day 1b finishers included Boshuang Gao (310,000), Jerry Payne (295,500) and Casey Stewart (278,500).

The 91 survivors of Day 1b will join the 65 players that made it through Day 1a, and the combined field of 154 will come back Monday at noon for Day 2.

With 778 total entries, the Main Event well surpassed the $1,000,000 guarantee, as the remaining players are now competing for a share of the $1,181,700 total prize pool.

The 154 remaining players return for Day 2 at noon Monday, and play will resume at Level 16, with the blinds at 2000/4000/4000.

Play is scheduled for 10 levels of 60 minutes each, and those that survive Day 2 will come back for Day 3 Tuesday and play down to a champion.

Day 1b play has wrapped for the night; a recap and end of day chip counts will follow shortly.

Ocksrider Takes From Rice

SandraBarbour • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

On a flop reading {j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, James Rice bet 10,000 from the small blind and Christopher Ocksrider raised to 30,000 from middle position. The player on the button tank-folded but Rice added the remainder to call.

The turn brought the {a-Spades} and was checked through to the {j-Hearts} river. Rice fired 25,000 and Ocksrider moved all in for about 160,000. Rice thought for a long while, then let it go. Ocksrider showed {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for quad jacks before raking in the pot.
