Day 1b of the $3,500, $3 million GTD Wynn Millions Main Event as part of 2023 Wynn Millions at Wynn Las Vegas wrapped up late Saturday evening with Paul Snead leading 110 players with a sizable stack of 474,000.

The second of three starting flights in the Main Event attracted a total of 412 runners, and many of the best players in the world battled it out on the blue felt in the luxurious Wynn/Encore tournament area. Combined with the first flight, there have been 754 total entries, and 208 players have bagged so far.

Snead, who has over $1.4 million in tournament earnings, per The Hendon Mob, is on a heater that included a victory at the $2,500 Tampa Poker Classic for $198,500 less than a year ago.

Some notable players who survived the second starting flight include Conrad Simpson (184,000), Alex Greenblatt (168,000), Alex Foxen (127,000), Andrew Lichtenberger (77,500), Ethan Yau (75,000) and David Coleman (47,000) to name a few.

Players who weren’t lucky enough to make it to the end of the day include Landon Tice, Johan Schumacher, Jake Daniels,
Kathy Liebert and Robbi Jade Lew who will all have another shot at a deep run with Day 1c tomorrow.

The day kicked off with close to 100 players and action was fast and furious in the early levels. Ren Lin who had fired four bullets on Day 1a was back in action and looking to put his new chips to work.

Lin found himself all in with ace-jack but failed to improve against the pocket tens for Spencer Champlin and was sent to the rebuy desk once again. Luckily for Lin his six bullet did the trick as he managed to climb the leaderboard throughout the rest of the day to bag a top ten stack for Day 2.

Those who bagged on Day 1b will return on March 6 at noon for Day 2ab, which will see them compete against the first two starting flights. The third and final starting flight of the nine-day tournament will pick up on March 5 at noon. Like the first two flights, Day 1c is expected to attract some of the biggest and best in the game.

PokerNews will be back tomorrow to bring you all the updates of the Wynn Millions Main Event Day 1c action, so stay tuned.

Khan Vaults Into the Lead After Massive Pot

Level 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

Mack Khan opened to 4,500 in middle position and Johan Schumacher shoved all in for 52,000 on the button. The big blind also ripped all in for 206,500 and Khan went into the tank. After a couple of minutes of deliberating and some questions for the dealer, Khan finally said "f*** it," and called.

Johan Schumacher: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Big Blind: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Mack Khan: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

"I thought you had queens," Ankush Mandavia said on his left. The board ran out {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Khan's pair of kings held up to eliminate both opponents and push him to the top of the leaderboard.

Level 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante
Kathy Liebert
Kathy Liebert

Paul Snead opened the action to 5,000 from early position and Bryan Piccioli called in middle position. Kathy Liebert moved all in in the cutoff for 3,500 total and the big blind also came along for 5,000.

The flop came {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and the big blind checked to Snead who continued for 8,000. Both Piccioli and the big blind quickly folded and the cards were tabled between Liebert and Snead.

Kathy Liebert: {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Paul Snead: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

The turn came the {4-Clubs} and river fell the {a-Spades} to give Snead the rivered pair to seal the deal and send Liebert to the exit close to the end of day.

Coleman Catches Chehata Bluffing

Level 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

On a completed board of {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, David Coleman and Ashraf Chehata were heads-up in a pot. With around 25,000 in the middle, Coleman checked to Chehata who made a bet of 16,000.

Coleman thought for a little over a minute before hesitantly calling. Chehata showed {j-Spades}{10-Spades} for air while Coleman turned over {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} to claim the pot.

Daniels Hits The Rail

Level 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

All the chips went in the middle preflop between a player from under the gun and Jake Daniels who was at risk for his last roughly 25,000.

Jake Daniels: {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

Daniels was in need of help and when the board ran out {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{k-Hearts}, his two pair was not enough to stay alive as the ace-king made a better two pair to send Daniels to the exit.

A Set for Greenblatt

Level 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

Alex Greenblatt raised it up in early position and the shortest stack at the table pushed all in for around 20,000 in middle position. The action folded back to Greenblatt who didn't hesitate before calling.

Opponent: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Alex Greenblatt: {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}

The flop came {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Greenblatt was still in the lead with the lone pair. The {3-Hearts} on the turn gave Greenblatt a set of threes and he needed it as the {a-Diamonds} completed the board.

Apter Finds a Way with Big Slick

Level 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

Two of the shorter stacks at the table got all of their chips in the middle preflop and it turned out to be a coin flip. The shorter stack flipped over {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and Brett Apter was in the big blind with {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The flop of {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs} was no help to Apter but the {4-Spades} and {8-Clubs} runout counterfeit his opponent, giving Apter the best hand for a stack of nearly 100,000 chips.
