40 minutes separates the 60 or so players left in today’s Day 1B flight from a spot in Sunday’s Day 2. Nearly 13 hours of poker later, another starting session is almost in the books for the Poker Night in America Main Event. With the final Day 1 flight starting up tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if the short stacks in the field try to double up or stay out of harm’s way. Likewise, it will be compelling to keep on eye on the chip leaders as some may try to move up further or shift into cruise control and conserve ammo for Day 2.
As this event is not a best stack forward format, whatever chips players bag they will come back with on Sunday. It will be intriguing to see how all these dynamics play out as another day comes to a close. The Choctaw blog will be here with a look at the end of the day chip leaders once the bags come out.
