The highly-anticipated $10,000 buy-in, $10,000,000 GTD Wynn Millions continued on Saturday with the second of three starting flights. Day 1b attracted 389 runners, which along with 1a’s 263 brought the current field up to 652 entries with Sunday’s Day 1c still to go.

After 10 levels of play, 148 players remained with poker’s all-time tournament money leader Bryn Kenney (376,500) leading the pack.

Others to bag big stacks were Bruno Furth (331,500), Kristen Bicknell (282,000), Arthur Conan (281,000), and Julian Milliard (255,000). They were joined by players like Connor Dinan (142,500), Chris Brewer (133,500), Brian Altman (114,000), 2020 WSOP champ Damian Salas (108,000), Chris Moorman (97,000), and Brock Wilson (96,500).

Among those to try and fall on Day 1b were Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg, Daniel Negreanu, Minnesota players Kou Vang and Blake Bohn, four-time bracelet winner Brian Hastings, Matt Berkey, Poker Hall of Famers Eli Elezra and John Hennigan, and the legendary Johnny Chan.

Chan doesn’t play many tournaments these days, but the Wynn Millions proved prestigious enough to draw out the two-time WSOP Main Event champ. Unfortunately for Chan, he never gained much traction and bowed out in Level 8 (500/1,000/1,000).

It happened when Sergio Aido raised to 2,500 from the button and then called when Chan three-bet to 7,500 from the small blind. On the {a-}{k-}{7-} two-diamond flop, Chan continued for 10,000 and Aido called to see the {8-Diamonds} turn. Chan moved all in for his last 15,000 or so and Aido called.

Johnny Chan: {q-}{10-Diamonds}
Sergio Aido: {a-}{8-}

Aido was out in front with two pair while Chan had both straight and flush draws. Unfortunately for Chan, the river was a brick and he was eliminated from the tournament. Aido went on to bag 204,500.

Chan and others have one last chance to try again as Day 1c will take place at Noon local time on Sunday. PokerNews will be on-site to capture all the action throughout the six-day long tournament, so be sure to tune in all weekend long into next week.

Final Five Hands

AnthonyThompson • Level 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

The tournament director has just announced the final five hands of the evening.

Nines Hold for Mosley

AnthonyThompson • Level 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

A series of preflop raises saw Dominique Mosley call the button's all in and the two players revealed their hands.

Dominique Mosley: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

Mosley was ahead with his made hand but had a sweat after the {4-Spades}{j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} flop gave his opponent a broadway draw. Luckily for Mosley, the {j-Spades} paired the board on the turn and a brick {2-Spades} fell on the river securing him the pot.

Alfa Sniffs Out Imsirovic's Bluff for Double

AnthonyThompson • Level 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Ali Imsirovic raised to 3,500 from late position and only Dave Alfa called from the cutoff. The {3-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} runout saw Imsirovic lead out on all three streets, 2,000 on the flop, 7,000 on the turn and 90,000 on the river.

Alfa called all three bets, with the last bet costing him his final 35,000. Imsirovic quickly rolled over {10-Spades}{6-Spades} for a missed gutshot and Alfa took a sigh of relief showing {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for the winner.

Magnus Sends One to the Rail

Chad_Holloway • Level 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Action folded around to a short-stacked player in the small blind and he jammed for 17,000. Nadya Magnus was in the big, looked down at her cards, and made the call.

Nadya Magnus: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Small Blind: {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Magnus woke up with a monster and her ladies held as the board ran out a safe {j-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}.

Aces High Secures Alfa the Double

AnthonyThompson • Level 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Dave Alfa was all in preflop for 18,600 on the button and was called by the player from middle position.

Dave Alfa: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Opponent: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Alfa had his opponent dominated and nothing changed after the {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop. The {q-Diamonds} turn made things interesting but luckily for Alfa, the {8-Hearts} river put three eights on the board and secured him the much-needed double.
