The highly-anticipated Wynn Fall Classic $3,500 Championship continued on Saturday with the second of three starting flights. Day 1b attracted 554 runners, which along with 1a’s 341 brought the current field up to 895 entries with Sunday’s Day 1c still to go.

After 15 levels of play, 101 players remained with Italian Leonardo Patacconi (500,000) leading the pack.

Ryan Remington (445,000), closed out the night strong after winning a late race while Michael Rossitto, Alfred Husary, Patrick Eskandar all bagged the same amount (443,000).

They were joined by players like Nikolaos Platis (442,000), Ali Imsirovic (403,000), Ian O'Hara (390,000), Joao Paulo Simao, (221,000), Adrian Mateos (121,000), 2020 WSOP Main Event champ Damian Salas (115,000), and Alex Foxen (97,000).

Coleman Falls After Jamming Into Husary's Cowboys

AnthonyThompson • Level 15: 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante
Alfred Husary
Alfred Husary

A series of preflop raises saw David Coleman get his 160,000 stack in the middle and Alfred Husary called from the cutoff.

David Coleman: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Alfred Husary: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Coleman didn't like what he saw after the cards were tabled and for good reason as the {4-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs} runout ended his tournament just before the final six hands were announced.

On the flop {8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} a player bet 10,000 and Qing Liu made it 25,000.

His opponent called to see the {10-Spades} turn and Liu stuck out a stack worth 90,000.

The player called and saw the bad news as Liu showed {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for a full house. The player at risk was drawing dead with {k-Spades}{q-Spades} and Liu dragged the pot.

Action folded to Ryan Remington who raised from the small blind only to have Alex Foxen three-bet to 40,000 from the big blind.

Remington fired back with a 100,000 four-bet and then called off his 202,000 stack after Foxen five-bet jammed.

Ryan Remington: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Alex Foxen: {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}

Foxen was ahead with his made hand until an ace appeared in the window on the {j-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} flop.

The {2-Diamonds} turn didn't change a thing and the {k-Hearts} river secured Remington his double-up.
